    Default Ceiling Fans

     Looking for metal fans. The wood ones look nice but don't move the air enough.

    The main features would be:

    Anti Corrosion
    Remote control if available. Hate those big boxes on the wall
    Cost
    Reliability. 

    What are you guys history with ones that work?

    KDK is the best brand here, but the metal blades rust!

    The KDK work great, but big box on wall. We have one in our living room.

    We bought 4 Kichler outdoor ceiling fans on ebay, shipped them down with a mundanza, and we love them. Two are in our outside covered patio, and the other two are in our master bedroom. My husband bought the remote controls separately and installed them when he put the fans up. They really move the air, and since they are rated for outdoor/damp conditions they should last a lot longer.

    Don't waste your money on the pretty Westinghouse fans at Ferreteria Americana - they only look nice, do not move the air.

    Learn to like the box on the wall because KDK is the best choice.

    Part of the reason for the big KDK box is it's easier to just surface mount the Variable Speed switch - and not recess it into the wall.

    You can buy remote control switches, you may have to order from the States though - not sure about variable speed.

    Big metal blades KDK moves the air like no other. Make sure it's properly balanced by the installer.
