Earlier this week I had installed a Hunter Oakhurst ceiling fan and it was the 6th Hunter I've purchased. It was a major disappointment. The motor was so slow I could barely feel air move even when it was on the high setting. I should have read reviews about it before I bought it because my complaint was a common one among consumers who purchased this model.
After reading good reviews about the Hampton Bay Brookhurst, I took the other fan down, packaged it and returned it to Home Depot. The return went smoothly and I purchased the Hampton Bay Brookhurst.
I had read many reviews that mentioned when you mount it flush there are parts you need to remove and parts you don't use. I didn't have any trouble figuring out which ones but to help future installers of this fan, I am uploading a picture of all of the parts I had left over. You don't use the small extension rod, and you remove the cotter pin and 2 screws from the motor housing.
Like others, I had some difficulty getting the light kit wires into the small cavities, but that was about the only problem I encountered.
The rest of the assembly was fairly simple, but I've done many of these installations. I did trim some of the motor wires to make it easier to shove them into the electric box in the ceiling.
After I completed the installation I turned it on and was happy to see that it did have a healthy flow of air on high, much more than the Hunter that I returned.
By the way, when you buy a fan the two measurements you want to look at to determine how powerful the air flow will be are RPM and CFM. To give you an example: The Hunter Oakhurst had 141 RPM compared to the Hampton Bay RPM of 160, and more dramatically, the Hunter had 2049 CFM air flow, compared to the Hampton Bay's 4,469 CFM. These specs are listed in all of the Home Depot on line listings for each of their fans.
This fan was just $59.00 compared to the $89.00 Hunter and as far as I'm concerned it's a better fan. Not quite as fancy, but for an economically priced fan, you can't do any better.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Well Made, Fast / Speed, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Cons: just having to cram the wiring into a small space

The Hampton Bay Brookhurst right after installation
This fan was to replace a smaller broken one. This is bigger than the one I had (5 blades instead of 4 and 3 bulbs instead of 1). It fits perfectly and I'm happy that it is bigger. The brightness of the lights are great! Even though it is winter and I won't be using the fan until Spring/Summer, I think it is going to be wonderful in cooling the room. It was really easy to put up. I didn't even have to read the directions. Very pleased!
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made, Fast / Speed, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight
I bought this fan after reading the reviews on here and scrolling through the cheapest fans for my home to help keep my old home cool until I get a in wall AC installed but until then this fan seems to be doing great at keeping the air cool and moving around the house.
I love the idea of having the extension or I can remove it for a closer installation to my ceiling but I chose to keep the extension on the fan to help move the air better.
I will sure recommend this fan to my family and friends and I want to buy a couple more of these for the other rooms soon.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made, Unique, High Quality of Material, Fast / Speed, Eco-Friendly, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, comes with energy saveing bulbs
The fan is great. Was hoping for one covered light but had to go with this one to get enough light for the room. Lighting great. We replaced an older ceiling fan with this new one, so the wiring was already to go with our wall switch. The instructions didn't reference wiring with a wall switch so it gave my husband much grief getting it to work with the wall switch. I pulled out instructions from the original fan of 20 some years ago - he finally got it wired correctly because the old instructions explained it. So good luck with that.
I purchased 3 of these fans. We searched the internet until we found these available. The internet purchase proved quite easy at our local Home Depot. 1 package had some screws missing but the others had some extra. The light kits were a little bit difficult to install but they were installable! One of my bedrooms has a built in dimmer switch so I had to use light bulbs other than the bulbs provided. Overall We are happy with this product.
If you're going to use LED bulbs, you don't want them enclosed because it will lower their life expectancy. This was the least expensive fan I could find at HD that had full-sized sockets and didn't enclose the bulbs.
If you've never installed a ceiling fan before, give yourself about four hours to do this, but if you read the instructions twice before you get started, it's not hard. I bought two of these and the second one went in effortlessly.
As for the fan itself, it's quiet and stable. I put these in 10x10 bedrooms, so it's more fan than those rooms need, but I couldn't find a 42-inch fan that met our needs. In a 100sqft room, these fans can move a lot of air.
I have no complaints about these and I would buy another one if I needed one.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Well Made, Looks Great, Nice Design
I am a 73 year old woman and I installed this fan myself. I would say if I can do it anyone can. I added a remote control Make sure you have your fan on high speed at start, by checking your speed chain setting. Everything worked out great. I purchased the white fan for my kitchen which is about 15'x15' with a large opening into dinning room. I live in the desert, and I have been amazed all day at how it has cooled my home. Its great! I am recommending it to my friends.
Great looking fan, the looks are a nice clean and simple design, nothing that draws your eyes attention in a negative way. I had to balance one fan, in a total order of 4. there is no hideous pin striping or etching anywhere. very quiet fan and pushes alot of air. Buy this one! Three flourescents are more than enough.
