One motor has consistently gotten a CeilingFan.com “Excellent” rating because of its quietness — the Rubber Flywheel Motor. Only three manufacturers use this motor on select fans: Casablanca, Emerson and Fanimation.
On this motor, instead of the entire motor spinning, the shaft (which is in the center of the motor) and the flywheel (where the blades are attached) are the only components spinning. The reason this fan is so quiet is because the metal blade irons mount to a rubber flywheel. On other fans the metal blade irons mount to the metal spinning motor.
Other reasons this is such a quiet motor:
- The rubber flywheel acts as a shock absorber to isolate the blades and eliminate motor noise.
- This motor boasts large steel ball bearings help to ensure quiet operation.
- For optimal performance this motor includes over 2000 feet of quality copper wiring.
- Since the entire motor is not spinning the motor operates smoothly and silently.
So, with rubber flywheel motors you can have a quiet conversation and still enjoy powerful air movement for maximum comfort.
