Is it possible for an electrician to wire this to my existing wall switches? Right now I have two wall switches for my current fan. One switch operates the light and one the fan. I really hate remote controls and don't really love the wall mounted option either.
Martha J on Aug 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Martha,

First let me say, that I love this fan, and so will you. To answer your question, the answer is yes. I have the same electrical set up. I have a wall switch with three switches. My husband actually installed the fan, and said that your electrician has to make sure that the existing wires have to set up to operate the fan. If this is the case, then you use the remote to turn on the settings (light on and fan speed). Then after that, you can use the light switches to turn on and off the fan (light and blades).
I have 8 foot ceilings and visitors that 6'4". What is the lowest measurement from the ceiling?
Be J on Aug 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Fan is 10 1/2" high from ceiling to blade (with 4 1/2" downrod) and 13 1/2" high from ceiling to bottom of light (with 4 1/2" downrod).
How are the blades attached to the base ?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Below is a link to the manufactures assembly sheet to provide a visual.

Are the fan blades made of real wood? Can this fan be installed outdoors?
Matt M on Jul 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The blades of this fan are not made from real wood - they are molded ABS. It is designed for indoor use, so we cannot recommend it for installation outdoors.
Is it easy to install or would I need to hire an electrician?
Julie K on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought two of these ceiling fans for bedrooms for my new home. Sorry, I did not install so I cannot answer your question. My electrician did complain about some of my picks but this was not one of them! They are lovely, move a lot of air quietly, and I have received many compliments.
How long does it take to get this fan?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Lots of this beauty in stock, you should receive 3-7 business days after ordering depending on your location.
i have a large room with high ceilings, will this fan suffice?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would suggest if you have a large room with high ceilings to consider using 2 fans, and of course you would use the long drop extension. I did that in one of my large rooms and it worked very well. I have yet to install my fan, I hope to do so this week. The room I plan to use this fan is in a bedroom with regular ceilings. Can't really help you out.
It is a beautiful fan and I'm excited about replacing the current fan with this new beauty.
Best to you.
Can this fan be angle mounted?
g b on Jul 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Minka Aire Wave can be mounted on a sloped ceiling up to an 18 degree angle. If the slope is greater than 18 degrees, you will need to purchase a sloped ceiling adapter. You may also need a longer downrod to maintain proper blade clearance when installing on a steep, sloped ceiling. Longer downrods are also available for purchase. Since sloped ceiling adapters and downrods are special order items, we will need for you to call in and place the order over the phone. You can reach one of our ceiling fan specialists at (800)782-1967 Monday-Sunday from 4AM-11PM PST.
Can this be used on vaulted ceilings?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Mine is on a vaulted ceiling of about 35 degrees. I didn't use the extension, which would allow for installation on an even steeper vaulted ceiling.
Can I get a longer downrod for a sloped ceiling?

Not sure what an LED bulb means. Is it easy to find replacement bulbs and change them? Also, is there no option for a pull chain for the fan?...I've no interest in extra remote gadget. Is it easy to set up to existing light switch? Finally, I assume I can operate fan independent of the light (without having to turn the light portion on)?
lynn n on Jul 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: LED's are not bulbs in the traditional sense, no filaments to burn out. They are Light Emitting Diodes, designed to last for many years, 25,000 - 30,000 hours, which with normal use 3-4 hours a day is at least a couple of decades. The light module can be changed out in the unlikely event of it failing earlier than that.
No pull chain option for this, it includes a handheld remote control, but if you have a wall switch that controls the ceiling outlet, we do have a wall control option that you can add to control all of the functions from a single wall switch. It is a simple matter to replace your existing switch, no additional wiring is needed.
Finally, yes, with the included remote, or the optional wall switch, you can control the fan and lights independently.
Can the fan be flush mounted?
Elise N on Jul 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it can't. There is a ball within the down rod (Includes one 4 1/2" and one 6" down rod) that fits into the plate that goes on the ceiling. You can use one instead of two of the down rods and make it shorter. I don't know if I would recommend that because it might throw the 52 inch blades off balance. Talk to an installer ab out that. Also your remote needs to be inside of the plate. You need room for it.
Is it quite ( for bedroom use)?
Yvonne v on Jun 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes! It is almost silent. We have one in each of our boys' rooms and they are quite happy with them.
Can the light be turned off completely?
Yvonne v on Jun 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes...and works well on dimmer. Only drawback of great fan is it's not totally silent. but quiet.
Is the fan speed variable?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I placed 3 fans in my 1925 commercial office, and had my flooring match the fan... Looks so
classy... Have not had any complaints from my commercial tenants, since they moved in October 2016
... 3 speeds with fan... Beautiful!
Does this fan have a shorter stem from the ceiling than the pic shows? I only have 8 foot ceilings in my home.
Nick C on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes - the downrod in the image is actually longer than the downrods included with the fan. It comes with a 4 1/2" and 6" downrod included.
Is this fan rated for outdoor use?
Steven N on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it is not. But is a beautiful fan, moves a lot of air, and is quiet. I get many compliments on it. Actually, have two of them in bedrooms.

Very nice
There was nothing in the center of the ceiling, so had to install from scratch and use wiring from wall sconce. We bridged between the ceiling joists just above the drywall for the electrical box. The ceiling fan itself has very long wires which were a little difficult to gather and put into the ceiling cover. Something that could support the fan very close to the ceiling while doing the wiring would help, but a second person is pretty essential.

Now installed it looks great and is very bright on the highest setting, even with the low wattage LED. It's very quiet on low and medium speed a little noisier on high. It's very attractive.

Pros: Range of Speeds, Works in Both Directions, Attractive, Circulates Air Well, Quiet

Best Uses: Decorative, Alternative to AC

Good airflow
I read the many reviews on this ceiling fan and decided to purchase it based on those reviews. My main purpose for the fan is to keep my bedroom cool during sleep hours since we don't keep the a/c running while we sleep. There's 3 settings for the fan. We mainly use the 2nd setting. However, on occasion it does have a "clicking" noise while on the 2nd setting. Don't know where it's coming from and there were complaints about that from previous reviews but for me personally, it's livable. The clicking noise is even louder and more frequent on the highest setting which we don't use while we sleep. I used to have two portable fans running in my bedroom prior to purchasing this ceiling fan. Now I don't have the need to bring in the two portable fans anymore. Oh btw, no clicking noise on the lowest setting. Very quiet. Lastly, there were difference of opinion on the lighting that comes with the fan from the reviews I've read. The light is very bright on full setting. Fortunately, it can be dimmed, which is why we tend to dim it. Unfortunately, it works more like a spot light rather than lighting the entire room with the same intensity. The lighting we previously had in our bedroom wasn't that great before, so the lighting wasn't a deal breaker for us. For those who have great lighting in their rooms now, I would probably keep searching. We are keeping the fan because as I stated before, our main purpose for this purchase was to keep our room cool during the hot summer nights. This fan definitely provides that comfort for us while we sleep.

Pros: Attractive, Circulates Air Well, Range of Speeds, Easy to install

Cons: Lighting, Clicking Noise

Best Uses: Smaller Rooms, Air Circulation, Alternative to AC

Beautiful Fan
This fan is beautiful. I bought it for my living room to replace a standard ceiling fan because I am going with a more minimal look. I liked it so much, I bought the same one for my bedroom and a similar one for my spare bedroom. The light is beautiful and dimmable and the fan has 3 speed settings. It is pretty, quiet and works! Love the remote too, especially for the bedroom. I've received lots of compliments on it.

Pretty Looks but light is awful
This fan looks great on the ceiling and circulates air well. But the quality of the light is ghastly, cold, blue/grey, and casts harsh shadows. We have worked hard to create warm, inviting light in our home, and this is an eyesore.

Pros: Circulates Air Well, Quiet, Attractive

Pros: Circulates Air Well, Attractive, Range of Speeds, Works in Both Directions

Cons: Led Light Is Too Bright

Best Uses: Decorative, Air Circulation, Master bedroom, Alternative to AC
