Our Pick of Minka Aire Ceiling Fans (available on Amazon)
Minka Aire Wave Ceiling Fan Model F843 Dk
This being the first pick of our Minka Aire ceiling fans collection was chosen because of its contemporary design and its ability to be camouflaged within a wooden ceiling of a house, office or other living space. Even though its available in 3 colours, its ideally built to match for its wooden brown colour in order for it to have a distinctive appearance to the room. It also has the ability to work with Alexa for voice control functionality, but this requires the Alexa hub and device to be purchased separately. The fan comes with a 3.5 and 6 inch set of down rods and it’s also possible for an even longer down rod to purchased separately if required. It should also be noted that during the first 24-48 hours of operation the fan may give a slight noise while its working as the oil in the motor gets distributed, so this should be gone within a few days of use. This fan is designed to be used in rooms of up to 250 square feet in order to get maximum efficiency but as its built to work on 110V electricity, it cannot be used in countries which use 240V power.

Minka-Aire F524-Orb, Roto Ceiling Fan
This is one of those indoor Minka Aire ceiling fans which does not come with light fittings but is available in oil rubbed bronze body to give it a wooden look, and it’s also available in brushed aluminium and white as well. Its 6 inch down rod gives it a total height of about 8.8 inches from the top of the ceiling to the fan. In spite of this ceiling fan motor size being comparatively big for his powerful burst of air, a common issue which most people face is that the wall switch works backwards as in when its turned to level 1 the fan works at the highest setting, and level 4 it works at its lowest speed. Although this unit cannot be used without a down rod, it also includes a shorter 3 inch down rod for those who require it in a smaller space or room.

The up lighting of fan when observed from the balcony gives it a nice appearance and illuminates the surrounding space very beautifully. Even though the fan could be used on an angled ceiling due to the structure of its mounting bracket, it’s not designed to be used outdoors.
However due to the complexity of the parts in this fan, it does take a considerable amount of time to be mounted on to the ceiling properly, and if its not handled carefully there is a tendency for it to get damaged in the process.
