    Like harmonising a helicopter's blades,it's important that firstly they don't have a significant difference in weight (blobs of ceiling paint or bits broken off from throwing the baby too high etc.) and then to ensure that the blades are all exactly the same height,or distance from the ceiling.To the nearest half centimetre (or 55/332 or something,of those old fashioned inches for our American brethren).This can be done by bending the recalcitrant blade(s) gently up or down as required.Many fitters don't do this and finish up with a manic corkscrew trying to lethally destroy itself and nearby residents at speed.

    I have a six blade Hunter fan (two 3 blade levels) that I bought over 20 years ago and it's still going strong. Wood blades that don't droop either.

    I love that fan.

    We have Hunters (4) and have no complaints. They are probably about 12 years old.

    LOL!!! My parents actually bought all 3 fans in 1984, I was 14, am 47 now, all 3 fans still doing their job!

    Based upon the suggestions here, I think I'm going to buy a couple of KDK fans. Anyone know of a good place to buy them in Santo Domingo? I'd like someplace with some selection that can also provide professional installation.

    We have Hunter fans for 10 years. Only problem is the blades on the 2 outside rust. I got tired of taking the blades off and painting them. I looked up fans with plastic blades. Got them from Home Depot. About the same price as the others. Brought them down in my suitcase. No problem at the POP airport.

    Visit La Innovacion. They have KDK, Hunter and a lesser known brand, Montecarlo. Have had the three. Most recent buy was Montecarlo. Recommend all three. Check them out.
