Site visitors report the following advantages or pros as it relates to the Hunter Stockbridge 70″ Ceiling Fan:

Moves a lot of air. Fans with fan blades this large typically do move a lot of air. When fans are this large, they can often be referred to as industrial or commercial ceiling fans.

Stylish – The fan has a unique and appealing appearance.

Quiet fan – The fan does not make a lot of noise.

Hunter Stockbridge Ceiling Fan
The Hunter Stockbridge Ceiling Fan is a 70 inch fan. This means it can sure move a lot of air! Site visitors have advised this is a quiet fan too, which is nice. However, there’s a number of reports that the blade color as well as the globe color leaves something to be desired. What do you think – do you like the fan’s colors, or you’re not a fan? Pun intended.

Site visitors reported the following disadvantages or cons:

Some site visitors reported a slight wobble with the Stockbridge fan. Other users also reported that because of the wobble, they tried to balance the fan. Due to the blades being quite large, balancing the fan was not a pleasant experience.

There have been reports, of those who purchased this fan that they didn’t like the blade color or the globe color. While some don’t mind it, others would change the blade color and the globe color if they could.


How do I clean my Hunter ceiling fan?

Prepare the ceiling fan and area below for cleaning

The first step – prep the area! We want to put down some old sheets, or whatever rags you don’t care about that can catch dust and other dirt under the fan. You want to cover not only the area under the fan, but an area about twice the width of the fan.

Once you’ve got some drop cloth or something under the fan to catch dust and dirt (make sure you don’t have furniture right under the fan either), then it’s time to set up your ladder. You want to make sure the ladder is in such a place, that you will be able to see the top of the blades. Remove light kits and light globes too, so they don’t get dirt and dust all over them. In fact, it’s not a bad idea to take them down too so you can clean them as well!

Cleaning your Hunter Ceiling Fan

Now that you’ve got the area prepped and ready, we can start cleaning our Hunter fan! The best way to go about is to use a brush. The kind of brush you should use looks like the below. These kind of brushes are great for multiple purposes, actually. Yes, they work great with ceiling fans, but due to the reach, the telescoping arm, etc. and the shape of the brush, you can get into hard to reach places. They work great as ceiling fan cleaners but double as dusters as well. These cleaning duster u-shaped brushes are not overly expensive and serve multiple purposes, so they’re a great buy for any home owner or ceiling fan enthusiast.

Ceiling Fan Ushaped Cleaning Brush

Eversprout Flexible Microfiber Ceiling and Fan Duster

Only $25 USD, and has a reach of 8-10 ft. It’s also machine washable! A pretty nifty duster, if we do say so ourselves.

Once you’ve got the right tools, it’s onto cleaning! You’ll want to wipe both sides of the fan blades.

If there are any light globes on your Hunter ceiling fan, take them down with a screwdriver and hand wash in the sink. Before you re-attach the light kit or globe, make sure that you let the globe dry completely.

Finally, in order to prevent dust from sticking to the blades going forward – one site visitor suggested using car wax. Kind of a cool idea. We’re not sure how much car wax to apply (likely just a little bit), but you could try this trick out and let us know how it works out for you and your Hunter ceiling fan!


  • Don’t spray water or liquid onto fan blades.
  • All purpose cleaner can be used with fan blades, and a cloth or sponge to wash the blades
  • Don’t apply pressure – you don’t want to bend the fan blades


Hunter Key Biscayne Ceiling Fan

So, why would you consider the Hunter Key Biscayne Ceiling Fan? Great question. There’s lots of redeeming qualities about this fan. Let’s examine them. The first thing you should understand about the Key Biscayne Ceiling Fan – it’s a large fan. The fan has a 54″ blade span, making it a large fan that can move much air. Due to the fact that it’s a larger fan, it’s important to note that it needs to be mounted in a larger room which allows for the larger blade span of the fan without interfering with anything else in the room.
As always, Hunter’s Whisperwind motor provides superb air movement. However, as the name implies, it’s quiet – so there’s no need to worry about the fan making ample noise, despite it’s large profile – it’s quiet. The quiet motor is also a reversible motor, so it’s easy to change direction. The Key Biscayne fan is ETL damp rated, too. This means it’ll work in places like porches, patios and sunrooms. However, let’s clarify that a bit. When we  talk about using this fan on a porch, we talk about  “covered porches.” This means that the fan can be used in a damp setting – like it rains outside, but it’s best not to have rain go directly onto the fan. The blades will likely pick up some moisture from time to time, so it’s not a bad idea to try and dry it off as well with a cloth to keep it in top running shape. One thing we don’t recommend is keeping it constantly wet – try to keep it dry. It can be damp, but should not be wet all the time. Buildup or accumulation constantly on top of the fan in terms of water or moisture will basically cause the blades to eventually become out of alignment potentially.

Is it possible for a 120 volt Hunter fan to work with 220 volts?

This may seem like a funny question, but certainly it’s a possible one. The scenario may be the case if say, you purchased a ceiling fan in another part of the world that runs on a different power source. It’s important to note that if you plug a 120 volt appliance into a 220 volt socket, or vice versa, you can damage the appliance or cause it to stop working altogether. It’s also possible that you could cause smoke to come out of the power cord, or the fan motor.

With that being said, it might be possible to downconvert from 220 volts to 120 volts with a proper transformer or inverter. This means you would have a 220 volt outlet, and a transformer that does the work, that you then plug the 120 volt ceiling fan into the transformer or inverter. It’s not possible to go the other way. So if you have a 120 volt wall outlet, and a 220 volt ceiling fan, it’s unlikely you’ll find a way to “step up” the voltage.

Step Up Step Down Transformer
Here’s an example of a step up/step down transformer, built to transform voltages between 120 and 220 voltage levels.

With any of these step up or step down concepts, the safety of the application rests solely upon you. Running the ceiling fan on any voltage that it was not manufactured to use, will likely reduce the life of the ceiling fan. While some of the above concepts may be possible, we don’t really recommend it. It’s better to simply purchase a Hunter ceiling fan in the region in which you live, so  you don’t need to worry about potentially causing your fan to stop working or encounter unforseen problems as a result of one of the above applications.

Hunter Outdoor Ceiling Fans

When you’re looking at a Hunter outdoor ceiling fan, you need to take a number of things into consideration. The most important thing is to look at the natural climate of your fan. Keep in mind – this is an outdoor fan. It’s going to have to deal with all of the things that happen outside. You are sitting inside a lot of the time, so you don’t always know what is happening outdoors on your porch (or wherever you decide to mount the Hunter outdoor fan). The fan you install could have to deal with dampness, salt, rain; potentially even snow. So, what kind of fan makes sense?

Hunter Beachcomber Damp Rated Ceiling Fan
The Hunter Beachcomber is a good example of a damp rated ceiling fan. The fan is rated to work in damp conditions.

Essentially, you’ll want to purchase a Hunter outdoor ceiling fan that can stand up to all of the outside weather conditions that mother nature can throw at it. If you install a Hunter fan that can’t stand up to the climate and weather, the fan will start to slow down, or may not operate properly at all. It’s hard to say what kind of problems the fan will run into if it’s not suited for the weather conditions.

  • Damp rated – for damp environments, but not necessarily wet environments
  • Salt rated – when living by the sea and having to deal with salt deposits
  • Wet rated – for rainy, wet climates where the fan is expected to deal with rain and water on a common basis
