Casablanca Fan Company History
In 1974 entrepreneur Burton A. Burton entered the United States ceiling fan market with a belt-driven ceiling fan created for commercial use. Stimulated by the energy crisis of the mid 1970s, Casablanca Fan Company jumped into the residential market. Soon enough Casablanca Fans was known as a leading manufacturer of premium consumer products offering innovation, exceptional quality and distinctive decorative designs, coupled with unique marketing, trade and consumer promotions and memorable advertising. Designed to be a classic fixture in the home, Casablanca is proud of its approach to timeless design, engineering, and manufacturing of ceiling fans.

Casablanca Fans FAQ's
- Can I hang a ceiling fan myself?
Yes! Casablanca makes an easy do-it-yourself, one-person installation easy! Hang-Tru™, Casablanca’s hanging system supports the fan from the ceiling, leaving both hands free to complete wiring connections. The self-centering ball assures that the fan hangs straight, even on ceilings with up to 32-degree slope.
- Do I need to purchase extra fan installation tools?
No! Casablanca Fans has everything you need - light bulbs, batteries for remotes, and even a screwdriver!
- What size fan should I buy?
Great question! For rooms up to 225 square feet (15’ x 15’) and larger, use a fan with a blade span of 50”, 52”, 54”, or 56”. For rooms up to 114 square feet (12’ x 12’) we recommend fans with blade spans of 42” or 44”. And for that smaller room (8’ x 8’) you should use a fan with a 32” blade span.
- What direction should my fan turn in the summer versus the winter?
Summer: forward or counter clockwise. Winter: reverse or clockwise.
- How do I care for my fan?
For dusting fan finishes use a soft brush or lint-free cloth and for heavier dust use a vacuum cleaner brush nozzle. For surface smudges use a mild detergent and a slightly dampened soft cloth. For wood-finish blades use a furniture polishing cloth and occasionally you might want to add a light coat of furniture polish. For painted and high-gloss blades use a mild detergent and slightly dampened soft cloth.

On top of that, Casablanca offers a lifetime warranty, backed by industry leading customer service and support.
