Hunter® 5-Minute Fan. Brings Together Style and Ease

Memphis, Tenn. (February 13, 2008) - Ceiling fans have long represented an easy way to improve the home environment, but have not traditionally been the easiest houseware to install; Hunter Fan Company has made this rather hard job into a task that will take 5-minutes or less. Appropriately named the 5-Minute Fan™, it's 90% pre-assembled out of the box. With fast and easy installation, the 5-Minute Fan is the perfect fit when builders or homeowners need to get the job done. Whether it be remodeling a room or moving in for the first time, Hunter's 5-Minute Fan™ supplies the style and quality that defines Hunter and its wide range of ceiling fan models in, well, five minutes or less.

In five simple steps, the versatile 5-Minute Fan™ can be installed in flush, standard or angled mounting fashions with or without a light kit:

  1. Attach mounting bracket to approved junction box or ceiling joist, seat hanger ball in bracket
  2. Make wiring connections and attach canopy
  3. Attach blades using EasyLock™ blade system
  4. Install light bulb(s)
  5. Attach glass bowl using cap and finial

"Hunter's 5-Minute Fan™ is a true innovation for either the builder or the do-it-yourself homeowner," says Brendan Byrne, Hunter Fan senior vice president of ceiling fans and accessories. "Quite simply, it won't take an experienced electrician or a handyman."
