Nostalgic design elements give the Devon Park farmhouse ceiling fan its charm. The mason jar-inspired glass pairs with the vintage look of the energy-efficient, dimmable LED Edison bulbs for an industrial look with detailed rustic finishes. Featuring powerful WhisperWind motor technology, the pre-installed remote receiver makes this indoor ceiling fan easy to install and enjoy.

Not a “fan” of the remote and here’s WHY it beepsFirst, I really like the fan. Virtually silent, looks great, easy to install with one exception and provides great lighting. Really, really like the looks of the fan. I’m fairly handy and have installed maybe a dozen ceiling fans over the years. This is one of the easiest I’ve installed. Took about 3 hours but I had to change out the ceiling box too to something that would support a fan versus a light fixture. Maybe 90 minutes for just the fan. Only challenge was the last step of attaching the light kit onto the fan base. Very fussy. A bunch of wires in the light box so not much room for the electrical connector to fit inside. Spent a lot of time pushing the wires out of the way and finally had to tape them down so they wouldn’t move back in the way. Then you are supposed to push the light fixture up against the bottom of the fan and rotate it clockwise to lock it in. Very confusing instructions on this. Read them about 6 times till I finally got what they were talking about related to the “notch” and the “pin.” Here’s a clue: Only one “pin” on the fan side but three “notches” on the light side and you can align any of the three notches with the one pin. What they are calling a notch is the part that sticks out from the attachment piece on the light kit. NOT one of the “slots” in that piece. Think of a spout on the top of a box of salt that sticks out. That’s what they are calling a notch which is not at all clear from the picture. Anyway, once I sorted that out, it went together fairly well although still needed a lot of upward force to get the light fixture to seat properly with the fan due to all the wires crammed into the light fixture.Now that it’s all installed and I’ve used it a few days, my only beef is with the remote. (Yes the fan beeps when you press buttons on the remote as many have commented but that really doesn’t bother me.) It’s the REASON it beeps that bothers me. See attached picture of remote. Only 3 buttons so as a result, you kind of need the beeping to give you some feedback so you know what the fan is doing. Other fan remotes I’ve had (including Hunter’s) have hard coded buttons for slow, medium, fast, off and reverse so you don’t need a beep to tell you what the fan is doing. You just press the button you want to tell the fan what to do. They provide a little card with the remote so you know all the combinations of button presses to operate the fan properly. Long hold of fan button, for instance, reverses direction. Hold down both Up and Down buttons to turn dimming mode off or on. (This tripped me up awhile as the dimmer didn’t work at first until I turned dimmer mode on by holding the up and down buttons.) Ultimately, in Hunter’s interest to make a small, sleek looking remote with only 3 buttons, they made it much more complicated to operate. And that’s why they had to have the fan beep so you had a clue what you were telling it to do. And don’t lose the instructions card or you’ll be lost forever!So, in the end, I like the fan a lot but they should go back to a larger remote with more buttons and lose the beeping.

Good choice in ceiling fansReplaced a dead fan, wiring is single wire as for a light only so we needed a remote control feature.Instructions even I could understand.Went together easily, all the screws and all the tapped holes went together, no burrs, no globs of paint.Gives off plenty of light in spite of using LED bulbs.Remote is simple enough to use but not totally, we taped the instruction card next to the remote until we learned all the functions.Good choice, worth the money, arrived with no damage.
Industrial/Steampunk fanI love this fan/light. The light fixture is simple, not fussy & frilly like so many of the globe styles. The globes look a bit like mason jars and they completely enclose the bulbs. The clear jars allow for plenty of light and the bulbs that come with the unit can be dimmed. I have yet to use the remote, although it is set up, as I also purchased a Hunter wall switch which is more convenient. The main reason for the remote, for me, is to be able to switch the fan direction from winter to summer air flow. I did NOT want to have to climb on a ladder to change the direction! The unit comes with 2 down poles and I used the shorter, 2″ I think, as I have a drop ceiling. I cannot address ease of installation as I had an electrician, who has installed these before and has installed below a drop ceiling, do it. It did not take him long so I assume it is fairly straight forward. I have the fan set to a low speed and there is no sound at all. I have not tried higher speeds. The blades are a weathered gray on one side and dark brown on the other. I chose the darker color as it blends with the base.I do agree with other reviews, the one drawback is the beeping when you change the light or fan setting or turn it off. No idea what the point it but it is annoying.Other than that I am very, very happy with this unit!

Attractive and quietI was pleasantly surprised the glass covers were completely enclosed so safe from bugs less cleaning! The lights dimmed in 3 steps. Everything about it works!

Remote Control is uselessNot the seller’s fault but the remote controls on the Hunter fans are terrible. We are going through a remodel and have bought four Hunter fans. The Devon Park and the Minimus. One remote will not work properly, and one will not work at all. We have written to Hunter and are waiting for an answer to our problems. We received our two Devon Park fans in two separate Amazon boxes and were in good shape and were delivered as promised.

Hunter fans are just not what they used to be.Hunter fans used to be a precision built fan but they have continued to go down hill for a long time. Since they started making them in China the quality has gone out the the door. Having said that, most fans on the market today are pretty much the same when it comes to quality.I already had most of the fan assembled when I discovered that the mount for the light kit was bent which really annoyed me but I was able to straighten it out; otherwise I would have had to return it.Pros:1. Looks great2. Very quiet3. Moves a lot of airCons:1. Poor build quality2. Installation not that easy (due to poor build quality)3. Remote could be much better (light dimming function is sometimes unpredictable)

Super quiet fanFan came with 2 damaged fan blades, but I contacted Hunter Fan directly and they are sending a new set of blades. Overall I love this fan, the looks, the quietness, etc. I do wish the remote was more user friendly with more buttons instead of having to read the small card they send as a cheat sheet with the different combinations on how to use.

Great product !Living room
not reversible bladesAlthough they show 2 different blades, they can only be installed to show the light woodgrain. We did not want that side when we purchased it. Now I either have to return after putting it half way up, or paint a brand new product. I will update this. UPDATE. I’m living with the wood grain. This fan was easy to install and works great! You people complaining of the beeping when changing speeds and on/off I say BIG DEAL! Although unnecessary , who cares? How many times are you changing something?
