Design by Ron Rezek.
By The Modern Fan Company.

Designed for a room with a low ceiling, the Aurora Hugger provides a primary light source in the center of the space. At only 12" in height and with a high-output indirect light source, the Aurora Hugger is a great solution for residential applications.

The Aurora fan incorporates a circline fluorescent lamp within a translucent diffuser, providing the incandescent equivalent of 180 watts of long-lasting, color-corrected, energy saving fluorescent light. The innovative Aurora fan qualifies for the EPA's Energy Star labeling as a highly efficient, energy conserving design.

The bottom rotor is die-cast aluminum and along with the other metal components is available in either a brushed aluminum or gloss white finish. The body of the Aurora is an acrylic diffuser which transmits light both downward and reflects light upward for complete room lighting.
Note: The fluorescent ballast is not dimmable. Any control ordered with the Aurora will be supplied in a non-dimming version.

Product Features:

  • Airflow measured in cubic feet per minute at high speed (CFM) = 6144.28
  • Watts at high speed = 69.6
  • Airflow efficiency at high speed (CFM/Watts) = 88.28
  • 3 plywood blades painted to match the fan finish
  • Select a 42" or 52" blade span
  • Qualifies for EPA's Energy Star labeling
  • Airflow efficiency at high speed (CFM/Watts) = 88.28

Modern Fan Company

Designed by Ron Rezek, the Modern Fan Company's models celebrate the modern idiom through mechanical simplification, geometric forms and contemporary finishes. The unique ceiling fan styles of Modern Fan represent a new age in ceiling fans - the marrying of efficient function with contemporary design (you won't find any wicker or flowery fans here!).

Modern Fan Ceiling Fan Buyers' Guide + FAQs

How low can the fan go and still meet my local code?

Code requires that the fan blades be at least seven feet off the floor. The code looks to the blade height and not the bottom of the fan body. However, for low ceiling installations, we recommend the Modern Fan Co. Cirrus Hugger as it looks more proportional when installed. This is the most popular fan sold in New York City, for instance, due to the high number of low- ceiling apartments there. For low ceilings, we recommend the Cirrus Hugger over the Cirrus as it is better balanced visually.

What size fan blades should I use?

In nearly all cases, the 50-inch to 56-inch blade spans are the most appropriate selections. The 42-inch or 46-inch blade spans should be reserved for smaller rooms or narrow spaces (10-foot-by-10-foot and smaller) or when airflow to the area above the blades is blocked or restricted by architectural elements (beams, walls, cabinetry, etc.). Occasionally, two 42-inch fans may be a desirable alternative to one 52-inch fan. The Altus and Cirrus models are also available with a 36-inch blade span for exceptionally small or narrow spaces.

How far down should I drop the fan?

We recommend that you drop the fan as far down as your aesthetics will allow in order to create the most air circulation.

What kind of light should I expect from the light kits? Will they light an entire room?

In general, the light produced by the light kits will not be sufficient for an entire room's illumination with the exception of the Halo fan. The light kits that use MR16 bulbs will not produce much task lighting at all and are more decorative in nature. The light kits which use incandescent bulbs will illuminate the area directly below and around the fan. The Halo has great lumen output and can easily light up an entire room since this body is very large and the glass is a great light diffuser. However, we do not recommend this fan in small rooms as the size of the fan tends to be visually overpowering.

Can I use ceiling fans outdoors?

All Modern Fan models are rated and marked as "Suitable for Damp Location." While you can expect years of trouble-free performance from these fans when installed in humid or coastal environments, the degree to which the appearance of a fan may be impacted by the environment will vary widely. A fan's specific finishing process as well as the intensity and nature of exposure that it will encounter in a given application will directly affect the longevity of its finish and appearance. A damp rating does not address specific finish durability, nor does it assure that corrosion will not occur in exposed locations. We encourage you to closely consider these factors when selecting fans for use in damp locations. A diligent maintenance program, initiated immediately after product installation at a frequency necessary to avoid salt deposits on the fan surface(s) for prolonged periods of time, is the best defense against corrosion and oxidation.

The brushed aluminum and galvanized finishes will typically outlast all others in our collection. These surfaces will not rust or peel, however, they will weather as a result of oxidation and exposure to salt or other corrosive conditions. The bright nickel and matte nickel finishes are also well-suited for exposure to reasonable conditions, but may show signs of weathering more quickly and visibly. The coated finishes (gloss white, titanium, textured nickel, gloss nickel) may be subject to peeling over time when exposed to sun, salt and/or other environmental conditions.

An additional consideration is blade construction. Over time, plywood is subject to warping and/or delamination. While fan blades are easily replaceable when necessary, our injection molded plastic blades supplied with the Velo, Velo Hugger and Pensi fans will generally outlast the plywood blades supplied with all other models in our catalog.

Modern Fans are not rated, nor intended for use in applications classified as Wet Location.

Can I use the fan on a sloped ceiling?

We offer sloped ceiling canopies for all Modern Fan Co. fans. However, with respect to the Stratos, the sloped ceiling installation is more difficult and should be performed by a licensed electrician using the factory installed (at purchase) sloped ceiling adaptor.

Which lighting control should I use?

While the choices in lighting controls seem overwhelming, the decision shouldn't be:

MF001: This is the basic three-speed control used to change speed on a fan without a light. It mounts on a wall switch box and includes a Decora-style wall plate.

MF002: This is the basic three-speed control (MF001) but with the ability to control a light (three levels of light intensity). This control requires two circuits from the wall box to the ceiling junction box (one circuit for the fan motor and one circuit for the fan light).

MF004 (MF011 for Ball/Whirlybird): If you do not have two circuits leading to your fan installation, then use this control. It uses the two wires that come from the junction box to the wall box to control the fan motor and it uses a radio transmitter (similar to a garage opener) to control the light on the fan.

MF009: This is the same as the MF001 but is designed to control three-to-five fans simultaneously.

MF003 (MF010 for Ball/Whirlybird): This is a handheld remote control unit that allows you to control both the fan and the light. The remote control has a LCD screen which shows the current setting. With the five buttons you can select one of the three fans speeds, stop, or light intensity. A signal receiving unit is placed into the fan canopy. A wall hanger is included with the remote.

Why is my fan sometimes on when I come home?

If your fan is mysteriously on when you come home from work, you are using one of the radio controllers. There are dip switches up in the fan body that change the frequency that the controller uses. Switch the frequency and your problem should go away.

Why does my fan wobble?

Fan wobble is an inherent problem with fans due to minute variation in the fan blade weight distribution. Modern Fan Company's fan blades are specified to be within one gram weight difference to avoid wobble. However, some wobble tends to be inevitable due to variance in installation location, airflow and other minutiae. Included in every fan is a small tool to help balance the fan and thereby reduce wobble: Attach the device to the end of each fan blade and turn the fan on. After trying this tool on each blade, identify the blade which, when the tool is attached, produces the least wobble. Then, move the tool from the outside of that blade towards the center in half-inch increments until you find the "sweet spot" (the location that produces the least wobble). In most cases, this will solve your problem. Modern Fan Company does not consider wobble to be a defect, and accordingly will not repair or replace installed fans due to wobble. YLighting accepts returns on fans but only if the fan has not been installed. So if a little wobble disturbs you, we discourage you from investing in a fan of any kind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great modern solution for a lighted fan We were pleased to find this fan, after searching many manufacturers. It has enough light and is streamlined enough to work with a lower kitchen ceiling. The design is clean and modern unlike most well lit fans. It is well priced for an upgrade that changes the room completely. We chose the aluminum finish which also helps to modernize the space. You can also purchase a remote control option which will be very useful at times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It met my expectations 100% I was looking for a fan light for over my kitchen table. I wanted a fluorescent light for energy savings. Although there are hundreds of fan lights on the market by specifying the type of lighting that I wanted the selection availability became very small. This fan light struck me immediately as not being a run of the mill light. The design is unique and causes it to stand out but yet it is not ostentatious. It suited me to a T. Now that I have it installed and am using it, I am so very pleased with my selection. Do not bother to send any $25 gift certificate. I will probably never buy another light in my lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product from Modern Fan Modern Fan, makes by far the best fans, they really move air, are sleek and this one in particular really hugs the ceiling, quite amazing as it has an integral light fixture. My only complaint is that it only comes with fluorescent lamping, I know I know, because of their energy efficiency I guess we will all need to get used to their light quality sooner or later, yet as the first important fixture in my house to use fluorescent, I can't help but mourn the end of warm incandescent & halogen sources.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, well designed & efficient We're remodelling our large, suburban 1979 ranch. We have tried to be as energy efficient as possible,, using bamboo and ceramics on the floors and low VoC paints throughout. Another feature has been these Aurora fluorescent ceiling fans. So far we have installed 6 and we're very pleased. They are pretty w/o being overpowering, quiet, move a lot of air, throw enough light for even over-sized rooms while using very little electricity. We highly recommend them & look forward to the next 6 we'll order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with new fan I bought 3 very nice Altus fans (without the hideous light option) and I needed a fan with a light which is a close match for a bedroom. Hence, the Aurora Hugger with the remote control option. It arrived well packed and was generally easy to fit although it was quite heavy and awkward to screw on to the ceiling bracket. I have another Aurora in the office and we had a problem with the remote operating both fans in the 2 rooms - a change to the code in the back of one of remote controls sorted this out - no need to remove the fan from the ceiling or anything like that. Overall I very pleased with the fan. Yes, the light is above the blades but I don't get any problems with flickering and of course in NYC the fan is only used 4-5 months a year whereas the light will be used all year round.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Finally a nice fan and ligh but... We were very happy to finally find a nice looking fan with a bright light that didn't hang too low. But we were very diappointed after installation to notice the effect the fan blades had on the light in the room. Because the light is above the blades, when the fan is on, it causes the light in the room to flicker. The blinking isn't terrible, but not what we wanted for our living room. So sadly we are back to looking for another fan with a bright light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product met our requirements very nicely. Installation was relatively easy although it would have been easier with a third hand. Light output is very good, better than expected. A dimmable ballast would make it much nicer. This is a very attractive contemporary look. The remote is simple and effective. The hugger is very compact and unobtrusive. The remote is simple and effective. I definitely recommend this product, in fact, I'm buying another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The ceiling light with fan is "clean,' efficient, quiet, and beautiful; I love it. The light/fan was straightforward to assemble but the remote didn't work. The manufacturer replaced it at no charge very quickly. The inner transformer then had to be reset also. But that was quick and the 2nd remote works great. It has a sleek, contemporary look, it is great for my space (a little shorter fan length than many standard ceiling fans) and I love it that it is energy efficient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased. I would actually give it a rating of 4.5. We are very happy with the fan. We have purchased two in the last year. We like that it has an Energy Star rating and a modern look. Installation was a little challenging, but my husband did it by himself. The wiring, even with the remote, was straightforward--it's just heavy. We will likely purchase one more Modern Fan in the next year.
