I'm hanging a Casablanca Bel Air Halo ceiling fan in my family room
which has a 19 foot ceiling. What length downrod should I use?
Casablanca's web site indicates I should use an 108" downrod, their
phone support said 96" when I called them, and a dealer said 60".
The dealer said that if I wanted to operate the fan year-round that
it'd be better to put it closer to the ceiling, otherwise I'd have to
run it on high during the winter to get proper circulation. But if I
put it that high, I
don't know how I would change the light bulbs (can't do it with a
telescoping pole as the lights are covered).
If I use a longer downrod, is there a chance there will be more
My ceiling is 26' at the peak with a steeply sloped roof (16/12 pitch).
My fan is mounted about 16' from the floor, or roughly 1/3 down from
the peak to the floor. Seems to work pretty well. Kind of hard to
change the light bulbs though.
I just put up a 52 inch Hunter fan on a sloping 18 foot ceiling. I used a 72
inch downrod. That was Hunter's recommendation. To put it up I rented a 16
foot step ladder. Worked great except my Achilles tendons sure were sore the
Great Hunter fan: no wobble and worked as advertised.
They do make long life lite bulbs. I believe the compact fluorescents
last a long time. And I have seen poles with a gripper
on the end to grab the bulb to un-screw it.
Bush says that he does not need approval from the U.N.to wage
war.& he didn't need the approval of the voters to become
president either,did he?
I think he was asking about lights not your politics.
But since you raised it, why is it that you lefties persist in perpetrating
such foolish lies?
Bush was duly and legally elected, The courts have backed that up in every
challenge. Here in the US we dont need the UN's approval for anything, we
didnt elect them and they aren't our government. But they did pass quite a
few resolutions which Iraq refused to comply with. Saddam had plenty of
opportunity to avoid regime change. Wake up and step into the real world,
leave that world of lies behind. Think! I mean try just once to reason out
the truth instead of just spouting the lies of the left. You might be
surprised at what you find. Contrary to what you have been brainwashed to
think, the USA is the good guy, and has done more (by a wide wide margin)
to help people in this world than ANY other country ever has, now or in the
past. Try just once to open that liberal mind you claim to have and see the
real truth, unless of course, you are just happy to be one more "victim
mentality leftie" and wine and wine and wine about how bad the US is,
I swear! One of these days I am going to open a 12 step program and rehab
Quit your whining......still!
It could have been worse
4 more years of Democratic Bullshit!
Long Live Bush
4 more years.
Finally a president with some balls.
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
Like the Clintons who stole just about everything they could get their
grubby little paws on.
Have some respect for "our" President.
Like him or not
He IS our President.
The UN is useless.
if it weren't for US waiting for the UN
we would have caught Sadam already and recovered WMD's.
instead the WMD's are missing and so is Sadam.
Why didn't Clinton take care of the mess when he had a chance?
you guessed it,
Hillary (or Monica) wouldn't give him back his balls!
enjoy the next 4 years.
