First, know that this fan is actually a brand of Big Ass Fans. No, I’m not cussing – it’s the real name, and I believe their logo is a donkey, aka, an ass.
Okay, you can see the before and how little the fan is – I think it’s a standard ceiling fan, so about 4 or so feet. The new one is an i6 and it’s 84 inches, so 7 feet. So much bigger!
We had to get scaffolding to install it – 15 feet of scaffolding! The ceiling is 22 feet, so this gave just enough room to reach up and install the down-rod (60 inches).
Okay, time for the new fan. It has a light, which is way brighter than we thought it was going to be, and we can control the fan via our phones. Total score.
Doesn’t it look so much better than the before? It’s bright, big, and adds an industrial looks to our cedar home. We’ve had it in for about 7 weeks and we love it.
The best part about this new fan is how it moves air quietly. I can’t ever hear it running and it has 7 speeds. On the highest speed it feels a little windy, yet we usually keep it on level 1 or 2, and then in the warmer afternoons (we do have AC) we turn it up to 3-5 or so.
Bryce did such an amazing job researching and finding the best fan to fit our A-frame home. It’s like an art piece in the sky. So awesome.
Well, there you have it – one big ass fan. Oh, and a plant light hanging out in the bottom left corner – gotta love plants.
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you’re staying safe and enjoying the down time. Time for new recipes? Maybe, just maybe!
