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.
The Key Biscayne comes with an included pull chain, so you can quickly turn it on or off and make speed adjustments. It also feature an included light kit. The motor is backed up by a limited lifetime motor warranty. The light kit uses two 14 watt standard medium base CFL bulbs. These bulbs are included with the fan.
