comment Do any ultra quiet ceiling fans that have no motor hum exist?
One thing I will say...on a couple models that supported third-party remote control adapters. When I wired the adapter in, that DEFINITELY added an electronic buzz to the fan. Removing the wireless receiver eliminated that buzz. I figure it's just cheap electronics that's causing that.

Thanks for the feedback. Interesting about mounting to the ceiling. I don't have the option of using a 4" pole. I had some fans for a while, I've actually had a couple...returned all of them due to one kind of noise or another. None of them would have worked with a 4" pole...far too low...I'd get my head knocked off if I did that.

Yeah, it is wind movement noise. If the wind sound is 34dB at the lowest setting, that is LOUD. I've had ceiling fans that were less than 20dB at their lowest or even lowest two settings...no wind sound, no motor sound, just a very light breeze. That's what I need...but I don't think it still exists anymore.

Thanks. I've exhausted options of other brands. (Ironically, I'm STILL looking, after all these years.) I tried one hunter a while back, and it just didn't move any air at the quiet settings. I'll have to see if I can find one that moves more air but is more efficient.

Update: I did find sound levels. I thought the chart at the bottom of their home page was a comparison with other fans. Turns out this thing is 34dB at it's quietest...far too loud for me. I need something in the 10-20dB range. I used to live in a place that had standard ceiling fans that were close to 10dB on the lower two settings...you couldn't hear a thing unless you got up to them and pointed your ear right towards the fan. That's what I need...34-40dB...wow, in the dead of night that's like a jet engine! :P

Thanks for the reply. Any idea if there is some richer information out there about these fans? I couldn't find anything about sound decibel levels on their site...and I'd really need that to know if this is quiet enough for me. (As a side note, it looks like most of those fans are backordered at least 100 orders deep, some several hundred... :o...)

I'm curious why this was down voted. While the quality of the writing is not great, are there any discrepancies in the facts? I have actually still not purchased a fan...once winter hit, I decided to hold off. I still need one, though...

@Craig: How is their brightness? I am looking for around 800 lumens or so, to be used on a dimmer switch. The kits I saw not too long ago seemed to be 450 lumen, which is fairly dim.
