Windmill Ceiling Fan
If you are a fan of windmills you’ll love this windmill ceiling fan for indoor use. With 15 blades, windmill fans by Quorum International look like old-fashioned windmills.
    The one thing they don’t have is the squeak, says Lillie Valis, who sells them at Heritage Haus Clocks & Gifts, a store she and her husband, Martin, have owned in San Angelo, Texas, since 1988.
    “It’s a very quiet fan,” Valis says. “The only thing you hear when it’s on high speed is air noise.”
    As a business owner she is impressed with the quality and warranty offered by the manufacturer, Quorum of Fort Worth, Texas. The windmill ceiling fans are made with weathered oak blades and galvanized or bronze rings. They come in 60 and 72-in. diameter models ranging from $1,485 to $1,532 (at Heritage Haus). An outdoor model has bronze or galvanized rings and painted aluminum blades and sells for $1,617. The fans are 6-speed, reversible with wall controls and DC motors and work best in areas with 9-ft. or higher ceilings. Down-rod adapters are available for higher ceilings.
    Heritage Haus has installed many of the fans in restaurants and homes in Texas, and Valis notes they are challenging to put up. The fans are heavy (the 60-in. model is 80 lbs.) so a brace is required and the electric junction box must be securely installed.
    “There are 185 screws in the fan, but they aren’t completely tightened until the fan is mounted on the ceiling and it is adjusted. Installation takes 3 to 4 hrs. for people who do it on a regular basis.”
