Style with Function
We were looking to replace our existing fans with something a bit more modern and functional. We were also on a timeline as a friendly electrician was going to install the fans for us within the week. Using Choice magazine as a guide we started to narrow down our selection. We wanted a triple-bladed fan with remote control. But our number one criteria was that the fans should be whisper quiet as they would be installed in bedrooms as well as living areas.
For this reason, I was advised to opt for a DC motor, as AC motors tend to start to hum when there is a switch from normal to off-peak electricity (apparently). Our old ones were certainly pretty noisy at night.
We made shortlist of four which included another Fanco which was slightly cheaper, as well as two others. One of those was about to be discontinued, and the other was too expensive for us.
The Fanco Wynd was a Choice magazine "Recommended," option that came in a range of colours. We opted for plain white with whitewash finish wooden blades.
There are very few places where you can actually see and hear fans in operation. Most fans are sold online it seems. So we purchased these fans sight-unseen, trusting in the statistics from Choice.
The next hurdle was getting the fans delivered in time so that we could make our tradie's timeline.
After searching the net, we made a decision to purchase from Fans Online (fansonline.com.au). They weren't the cheapest, however, the chatbot assured me that delivery was within two working days.
The fans arrived within two working days of the order being placed and were duly installed.
We were really pleasantly surprised on several fronts. The fans were as quiet as promised. They had an additional feature which we were unaware of - the breeze feature, which emulates the ebbs and flow of a summer breeze. But the highlight for us was that the fan became a feature of each room, adding an element of style.
The before and after pictures are not really that valid as the old fans were very old, some didn't work and they were a completely different style with manual controls which didn't work that well.
But we are extremely happy with our purchase as well as the service offered by Fans Online in living up to their competitive delivery promise.
Ticks all the boxes
Looks great, works well and is nice and quiet. The electrician hadn't had to assemble this style before, but got there in the end. Would recommend to anyone looking for a new fan who thinks looks are as important as functionality.
Purchased in February 2019 at Fans Online Australia for $419.00.
This fan is a masterpiece on my ceiling
It looks amazing, super quiet, has a great output and to be honest I would recommend this fan to anyone looking for this style. All of my guests notice it and make positive comments. No trouble at all assembling it
Beautiful fan - does what we want it to
We're really happy with this fan. We have a big room and wanted something that also looked stylish. This fan is effective, quiet and looks great. I would recommend it.
Purchased in January 2019.
Great looks and performance
Fans looks are a feature in the living room.
Performance is faultless, with silence at lower speeds, only wind noise and lots of air movement at high speeds. No wobble, perfectly balanced out of the box.
Lowest speed gives a lazy look.
Works very well, but assembly instructions are lacking for the novice DIY'er
Once installed, this fan looks and works really well. A word of caution to the DIY'er though.... the assembly instruction that come in the box are woefully inadequate. There are many parts and components that come with the fan that aren't mentioned in the instructions anywhere. It takes a bit of know-how and common sense to piece it together, so take your time and think it through. The wood blades are a bit lighter colour than the website image suggests, but overall it is a nice looking piece, operates silently, and gives off a perfectly sufficient cooling breeze at 50% speed.
Amazing fan, whisper quite
Great looking fans became a real feature in each of our bedrooms,
Running very quietly even at higher speeds. The remote controls are well laid out and functional. Fans can be easily taken down for cleaning and maintenance.
Enclosed balancing kit was not necessary as fans run smoothly at all speeds.
Great fan that looks good
I like the look of the fan with wood and bronze. Nice shape to the blades. Fan is quiet, well balanced and has good air flow. Remote has all the required functions. Very happy with the purchase.
Now I’m just writing random words to get the minimum 50 for the review
Smart looking and quiet
Had quite a few fans over the years as I move alot and this one is a lovely solid fan with Walnut blades and Oil rubbed Bronze motor - a very handsome machine. The remote is lacking features as you have to scroll through the whole range to get back to low - no big deal. As a visually driven person it is always a pleasure to look at and it's very quiet too.
So happy!!!! This fan is great!
Very happy with my purchase - I had absolutely no issues. It works perfectly and looks great. I really love the walnut finish. Very easy to use - and a good size for my living room too.
