Design by Ron Rezek.
By The Modern Fan Company.

Efficiency in a ceiling fan means getting the most air movement out of the electricity (watts) that the fan motor uses. The Velo Hugger fan, which is ideally suited for lower ceiling applications, combines a strong motor with contoured blades to deliver increased efficiency. The blades are molded of high-impact ABS plastic and offer a blade span of 50". As with the Velo Ceiling Fan, The Velo Hugger is available in either a bright nickel or gloss white finish and has an optional light kit for ambient lighting, available with either a halogen or fluorescent light source.
Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version.

Product Features:

  • Airflow measured in cubic feet per minute at high speed (CFM) = 5685.74
  • Watts at high speed = 68.80
  • Airflow efficiency at high speed (CFM/Watts) = 82.64
  • 3 blades; available in a nickel or white finish
  • Note: Express shipping is available on this item. In most cases, orders received before 12:00 PM Pacific time will ship the same day.
Dimensions
  • Fan body: 6.5" Dia X 14" H
  • Ceiling canopy: 6" Dia
  • Optional light kit will add 3" to overall height.

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 Beautiful lines and flows with many decors We are a designer and design and transform many SOHO offices and custom homes in our area to modern spaces. We have ordered products from YLiving in the past and have never been disappointed. This fan came on time and we were able to deliver their new office on time. The fan itself is well built and as modern as one can find. The body lines flow well with the curves of the three blades. We were worried about the color matching of the blades and the bodies at first, however once installed, it was not an issue. We only wished the fan came with color matched screw hole covers where the base met the ceiling...but other than that... excellent piece!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Velo Hugger works well and has a very clean design. I was concerned that the fan only had three paddles but it works well. It is very clean and I have specified this product for a boy's room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, Modern Fan I purchased the Velo Hugger w/ light for my bedroom in a modern home in Southern California. The look and design of the fan is very nice. Quality parts, materials, and aesthetics. Also, the wall switch and the remote control are very nice features. My one negative bit of feedback about this product is that upon installation, one of the blades of the fan rubbed against the base unit. The rub was only very slight, but it required me to remove the fan and file down a small bit of one of the blades. The modification is not noticeable, and now the fan works fine, but was disappointed that it did not rotate effortlessly out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed and easy to install. We purchased two Velo Hugger Ceiling Fans, one for each of our bedrooms. The fans have a nice, modern/minimal design. They were extremely easy to install, especially due to the easy to follow instructions and well marked parts and packaging. Was able to install each fan in about twenty minutes via a ladder. Our ceilings are eleven feet tall. You hardly hear them run except if you have it set on high, then you'll hear a slight hum, but that's to be expected. We also purchased a remote for each fan which makes them even easier to operate. In all, we're very pleased with this product and would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern, simple, functional I purchased this fan to replace a chandelier when I turned my dining room into a piano room. The room has 9' ceiling so I selected the Velo Hugger to maximize the head clearance. I love the 3-blade appearance. It looks so simplistically modern. The curved base and the rounded end of the blades helped balance out the straight line of the piano. The bright nickel finish also helped brighten the room against the black piano and enhanced the contemporary feel. The energy saving CFL light kit provided adequate light for a small room (10'x10') and did not make the fan too low. Ylighting service was great. They answered all my questions promptly and thoroughly. The shipping was good. The price was very competitive. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and Ylighting service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fan, keeps us cool! The fan arrived in just a few days. We had a professional electrician install it in our bedroom, who kept commenting on what a nice fan it was. The light is very strong, although the electrician did say a replacement bulb might be a little hard to find. Hopefully we won't need to replace it too often. The fan works great, and the first night we had it running we slept better than we had in recent days. It's been nearly 100 degrees, and even though the A/C is on, the fan keeps us cool and comfortable. We love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fan I purchased the hugger and non-hugger versions of this fan to go in our living room (with 25' ceilings) and our bedrooms with 9' ceilings. These are both excellent fans and run very efficiently and silently, even on the fastest setting. The one in the living room has the longest downrod available and does not wobble at all. The hugger fans fit the smaller rooms nicely (approx 12x12). We have four of these in our home and I plan on purchasing 1 more to finish out the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This fan is small, attractive and gives out a big wind We got two of these fans. One in chrome and one in white. Our rooms are good size, not huge. These fans are small and compact and make quite a statement when up. The blades are not long but when the fan is on, it does an amazing job of cooling the whole room. On slow and medium there is not a sound to be heard and on high you do hear whooshing as it twists but there is no motor sound at all. This is one great fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic modern ceiling fan! This is the fourth Velo ceiling fan I purchased from YLighting for my house. I received great compliments on the look of the first three, and loved they way they quietly and efficiently moved the air around, so I added the Velo Hugger to my home office. The fan came quickly and was easy to install. When I complete my media room I plan to buy yet another Modern Fan Company Velo Hugger from YLighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fan, very distictive design, nice addition to any room. I bought this fan to replace an existing "Home Depot" type product... this fan truly adds to the room in sooo many ways, it is a work of art in itself. Very unique in design. Quality of the unit is wonderful and the installation was very easy. This fan will last a long time and the design is timeless. Great product. I am buying another one for the bedroom shortly.
