    You hung the fan?
    LOL

    No, her husband hung the fan. And he died in 1993. The fan failed last year. So it was in service for at least 26 years.

      I've had great luck with the $50 fans from the box stores. I remember Bob (Iwire) saying a similar thing years ago.

        On a related note...

        My daughter had her house built in 2013. I installed a Hunter fan she bought from Lowes in her basement family room. 5 years later, her kids lost the remote. I went back to Lowe’s for a replacement remote. No longer available. She has no receipt or proof that the fan even came from Lowe’s.
        But they step up and look up that fan from their history in 2013. Since the remote is not available, the give her store credit for the list price of the fan at the time - $169. I get a replacement that sells for $129 that looks identical to the original and she has $40 left to spend. Lowe’s for the win!!

          I too had a good experience with Lowe's customer service (although not as good as yours). Went in to pick up some floor I ordered, and after 1/2 hour of waiting because they are so busy I said I'd come back tomorrow. The manager gave me a 20% discount. Pretty sweet.

          We had that hurricane last year, and the big box stores have been swamped since then, still going on today.

            I have had got experience with the Emerson brand fans. When I bought them the price was reasonable and they where quiet too.

                  Well, sure; ceilings are higher.

                  The fix is to use a longer downrod.
