This Fan Survived Hurricane Irma!
(photo supplied by amazed fan owner)
This Donaire fan actually survived hurricane Irma when other fans in the neighborhood were demolished. As you can see in the picture, the only damage was that the canopy cover came loose, which was easily put back in place. As one of very few ceiling fans made of 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel, it is made to better to withstand the cruelest punishment mother nature has to offer from wind, sun, rain, moisture and salt air..and yes, on occasion, a hurricane!

How does the Matthews Atlas Donaire in 316 Marine Grade Bronze Stainless Steel Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 5.000000 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Matthews Atlas Donaire in 316 Marine Grade Bronze Stainless Steel is among the finest quality ceiling fans made. It will run smooth and quiet without wobbling or making noise and you can let it run 24 hours a day for years on end without any worries of the motor burning out.
Wind Speed Factor: 3.8 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 3.8 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 5 out of 5. This is a stronger breeze than most ceiling fans, so if you are looking for a fan to keep you cool, the Donaire great choice. Aside from Quality, which accounts for smooth quiet operation and durability, the amount of wind-chill a fan can provide to cool you off is the most important consideration.
Airflow = 6573 CFM (average is about 5,000)
6573 CFM is a good amount of airflow and is above average. We highly recommend ceiling fans that move at least this amount of air in order to provide enough wind chill effect to keep you cool. The Matthews Atlas Donaire in 316 Marine Grade Bronze Stainless Steel will allow you to raise your thermostat by several degrees, which will help you save additional money on your cooling bills (if you have AC).
Efficiency Rating = 97 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 97 is fairly average. Efficiency is defined by the EPA as the amount of airflow a fan produces (CFM) divided by the amount of electricity (Watts) it uses on high speed without any lights on. Efficiency is less important than Airflow because more CFMs allow you to raise your thermostat higher...which is where you will save the most energy. Efficiency becomes more important if you expect to operate several ceiling fans at the same time. (see calculator below)
Electrical Usage = 59 Watts (average is about 76)
59 Watts per hour is well below average, which is excellent because the Matthews Atlas Donaire in 316 Marine Grade Bronze Stainless Steel will cost less to operate than the average ceiling fan. Use the calculator below to estimate just how much it will cost to operate this fan in "Your home".
Wind Speed Factor -vs- Efficiency: Wind Speed is KING! Ceiling fans can save you a lot on your energy bills if you use them properly to reduce your use of central air. Ceiling fans cool you off by creating a wind-chill effect, so the more wind speed a fan generates, the cooler it will make you feel. The cooler your ceiling fan can make you feel, the higher you can raise your AC thermostat to conserve energy without sacrificing your level of comfort. Raising your thermostat by 10 degrees can save you up to 40% on your cooling bills, but you cannot raise your thermostat by 10 degrees if you focus only on ceiling fans that use less energy rather than ones that generate higher wind speed. To put this in perspective: A typical central air system uses about 3500 Watts when it is running, so if a ceiling fan that uses 100 watts allows you to raise your thermostat a couple degrees higher than a more "efficient" fan that uses only 50 watts, the savings you will get by raising your AC thermostat a couple degrees higher is far more than the difference of 50 watts between the two fans. With that said, a ceiling fan that uses less watts yet produces higher wind speed is a win-win.
