Frequently Asked Questions
How does the Exhale Fan work?
How is this different from a traditional ceiling fan?
The vortex airflow profile generated by the Exhale Fan is unmatched in the ceiling fan industry. Air is not simply directed straight down but moves around the room in a pleasant cyclonic flow. The entire space is a unified temperature within 90 seconds of running an Exhale Fan from wall to wall, floor to ceiling.
How long will the Exhale Fans de-stratify my room?
What is the benefit of thermal destratification?
How will the Exhale Fans work with my air conditioner?
When you lower the temperature of your air conditioner by 2° F (1° C), the electricity usage increases by 5% to 15%. The 360° vortex air flow from the Exhale Fan not only gives you a subtle breeze, but it also cools down the entire room through thermal destratification.
An Exhale Fan at the highest setting consumes only 50 watts of energy, that is less than one light bulb.

How do I clean my Exhale Fan?
Here are some ways to clean it:
Hold a static duster (like a Swiffer) softly against the fan while it is at its lowest speed.
Use a vacuum dusting attachment.
A mini-blind cleaner works well.
A microfiber cloth, wet or dry (turn the fan off first).
Or for a deep clean, simply take the fan off the DC motor, take the housing outside, and use a garden hose and spray and let dry. The disc array is easy to install/uninstall (due to the size, helpful with 2 people!).
How strong is the LED lighting that comes with the fan?
LEDs are available in a choice of color from cool/daylight (6,000k) to warm light (3,000k) (like the tone of an incandescent bulb).
At 100%, the Exhale Fan LED lighting produces 1,100 lumens and can last for approximately 30,000 hours.

Will Exhale Fans work with air purifiers?
How long does it take to install an Exhale Fan?
In normal conditions, it can take less than 30 minutes to install the Exhale Fan. Experienced technicians can install an Exhale Fans in 15minutes in a pre-prepared installation. There are no blades to balance, no small parts to screw together.
The Exhale Fan was created with the DIY installer in mind – however, if you are not comfortable with a self-install, we encourage you to call a certified electrician to do the job. They’ll be impressed – we usually hear from contractors after they experience an Exhale Fan!
Can it be used outdoors?
The science behind the Exhale Fan requires barriers (such as a wall) to generate the vortex airflow. Unfortunately, this eliminates use in an outdoor space.
What is the return process if I’m not satisfied with my Exhale Fan?
Please keep your original box and packing materials for the return. Exhale Fan owners are overwhelmingly satisfied; we get less than 1% of our fans returned!
Please contact us if you feel like the fan isn’t for you – we will provide return instructions.

What are the color choices for the Exhale Fan?
Can I use a regular light / Can I change my bulb?
Our LEDs only use 15 watts at the highest intensity.
Can I install the fan on a vaulted ceiling?
You may need a ceiling vault or slope adapter.
A 3/4″ downrod (available in a variety of lengths and colors)
A platform for the motor mount (the motor mount is 5.5″ wide, and cannot be seen once the disc array is affixed)
