For 135 years, we've been reinventing ceiling fan design to transform your space. We create styles that inspire and technologies that keep you comfortable. Hunter Fan Company was born out of a desire for innovation and invented the first ceiling fan in 1886. Since then, we've continued to push what's possible while staying true to our core values. Our commitment to you helps ensure that we continue to be the best ceiling fan brand on the market.
Confidence you can feel.
You inspire us every day. We focus on people's needs and develop expertly crafted equipment that does more than just move air or emit light - it elevates the overall mood of a room. From start to finish, we pay attention to the details. With a keen eye for design, we create custom styles to suit every taste. We use high-quality materials like feather-light aluminum louvers and whisper-quiet motors. We test and prototype until we know we've created a product with proven function and durability. In the end, you'll have a ceiling fan whose performance lasts and whose craftsmanship delights.
Your Proven Experts.
It starts in our Memphis, Tennessee test lab, where our engineers and lab technicians subject our products to the highest testing standards. We perform twice as many tests as regulatory agencies require. We even invented some of the tests that are now required for all ceiling fan manufacturers, such as the shake iron test. We use UV lamps and pressurized water hoses to test our outdoor ceiling fans to ensure they maintain their performance and design rain or shine.
We take performance seriously. It's just our way. It's why our fans use direct-drive motors to move more air, and why we use efficient and bright lights. Materials, motor, blade shape and pitch - every element has been carefully engineered and designed to deliver a whisper-quiet, wobble-free fan.
The leader in innovation.
Hunter Fan Company was founded on innovation. John Hunter and his son James used their shotgun manufacturing business to start the very first ceiling fan manufacturer. From there, they developed a belt-driven ceiling fan powered by a water system, followed by one of the first electric ceiling fans.
For 135 years, we haven't stopped innovating. We've developed new designs and breakthrough innovations, from our SureSpeed® high-speed ceiling fans (coming soon to Europe) to our corrosion-resistant WeatherMax® fans. We have worked with aerospace engineers to develop our HVLS industrial fans. We redesigned ceiling fan components that are easy to install, such as our snap-in blades and pre-installed remote control receivers. Although we consist of a team of designers and engineers, we are inventors at heart.
Every day, we strive to push the boundaries of what's possible in ceiling fan technology and design. Our commitment to helping you transform your space every step of the way is what drives us every day.
