You are sure to find a Hunter ceiling fan to suit each room of your home. There are many styles to choose from, like classic or modern. A Hunter ceiling fan, with proper care should last you a lifetime. Hunter ceiling fans are made from the finest materials to create designs that are stylish and will add beauty and warmth to any room of your home. Each Hunter ceiling fan has been designed and crafted to rise above other ceiling fans for quality and efficiency. You can be assured that your Hunter ceiling fan will be more than just a beautiful addition to your home. A Hunter fan has an exclusive motor technology and mounting system. This is to ensure that every Hunter ceiling fan will not wobble and will be whisper quiet. This is something that Hunter has been doing since 1886.
The average nail-on plastic ceiling box is rated for only supporting a 35 pound static load. They are also not fan-rated. This requires that the ceiling box be replaced with a fan-rated box before the installation of a ceiling fan. Fan-rated boxes are capable of holding 70 pound loads and are rated for this application. This is easier said than done! The nail-on products do not lend themselves to be reinforced easily since labor savings have also been applied to the construction of homes themselves. In many circumstance the average home does not have an attic, only a narrow crawl space between the trusses is provided. This combined with blow-in insulation makes the location of the ceiling box difficult if not impossible when a fan is to be hung on an upper floor.
