MinkaAire Calais Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Product Received my second unit, a replacement for the first. It doesn't work either. Same problem, a bad starting capacitor on the motor. Beautiful unit with no quality control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! We had an electrician install this fan/light in place of an old fan and I am delighted with this product. It is in a master bedroom and looks luxurious and refined. I love the quiet motor, remote control, amount of air circulating, and just about everything about this fan. It is reversible for winter months but we haven't tried this feature yet. It keeps our bedroom cool! I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic Spent a lot of time looking for a Mediterranean appropriate fan. Very pleased with the fit and finish on this fan fits right into my custom home. Remote control is handy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Ceiling Fan/Light for flush mount This is the 3rd and 4th of this type fan I have purchased, and naturally I love them since I keep buying them. They installed quickly from the spot that the old ones were in. The glass is sheer, which lets out great light, even tho there are only 2 60-watt bulbs. The best parts are the elegant look and the super quiet motor, along with the remote control which is already included. If you are putting two of them in the same room, be sure to install the first one, turn the power on, re-set the code in the remote and do the reprogramming/turning on light BEFORE you install the second one. The second fan can then be installed without having to change the factory set code in it's remote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fan This is the second time purchasing this style of fan. We were so impressed with it five years ago, we decided to get another for another room in the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite! Used this one in my office. It's awesome! Nice orange finish and the crown is fantastic. Totally quiet! Comes with a remote but I got the wall switch. Works perfect with a two wire set up. Especially useful if you need a flush mountable fan.
