You won't believe how much difference it makes, in air flow, with this larger fan. The amount of air it puts out far exceeds that of a slightly smaller fan, even a 60" fan. I'm a Floridian, with extremely hot weather, and this fan kicks it up like no other could hope to do. I have a large Greatroom with 9' ceilings, and it cools the entire space. Quiet, no wobbles, all the quality you would expect. This is a terrific value for a fan of this size, just price one at the local home improvement stores, if they even carry a fan this big! If you want a functional fan that you will actually use, not just something pretty to accent the decor, then don't hesitate. You will save a huge amount of money on cooling costs with this. I have a 60" in my bedroom, but I'm going to replace it with another of these. Turn it on, even on low, and you feel the temp. drop immediately, it's truly awesome!
