Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Downrod made all the difference! I had ordered the Artemis Ceiling Fan, completely oblivious to the fact that our contemporary home had exceptionally high, angled ceilings that would effect the placement and height of a ceiling fan. Thank goodness YLighting listed the category of Accessories alongside the Artemis Ceiling Fan Order, otherwise I'd never have even thought about the need for an extension rod!. The rod arrived with the fan, not separately, as I've had happen with other on-line companies and I was able to assemble the entire system without any difficulty. Additionally, the metal downrod matched the wood tone extremely well. Thanks for enabling me to establish the correct air flow pattern for my open, contemporary home with this Downrod! It made all the difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent downrod, great size selection. I have 11' ceilings, and chose the 24" downrod. It's the perfect length for my height ceiling - it works so well that I have not had to use my air conditioner in my bedroom yet this summer. I like the dramatic look of the fan hanging two feet down, but I have yet to try the fan on speed 3 - I'm sure it will be fine (it was installed professionally on a steel beam and wooden cross bar in my ceiling) but the long downrod makes me nervous. I'll try speed 3 soon I'm sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a big difference! I purchased an Artemis Fan that comes with a 3" & 6" down rods. Unfortunately, I have a 10+ ft ceiling that requires a longer down rod. Therefore, I ended up purchasing a 12" down rod that allows the fan to circulates air so much better than if I had gone with the 3" or 6" down rod. The 12" down rod is very sturdy and does not wobble or make any noise at all. I'm glad I purchase it and would recommend it to anyone whose ceiling height is at least 10 ft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Length The Acero fan is a perfect compliment to my mid-century modern, walnut bedroom furniture. Despite the atypical three blades, it moves the air as you would expect at all three settings. In one room I used the light kit and in another I did not. It looks beautiful both places. Currently the lighted fan in my bedroom is the sole light source and is plenty. YLighting was very helpful in locating the additional down rods I needed as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The down rods for our Artemis Fans were exactly what we needed. We ordered the beautiful Artemis ceiling fans but when we went to install them we realized that the vaulted ceilings wouldn't accommodate them. I called ylighting and the representative recommended these down rods. They looked great and worked perfectly in this application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done - well. It might seem like a simple part, but I can't tell you how many times I've ordered an extension rod and had problems. Often the threading has metal shards on it still from manufacturing, or it's not a tight fit. This rod does what it's supposed to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works as expected I don't think that there is a lot to say about a downrod. It connected (as expected) to the fan and matched the brushed nickel appearance of the fan. Surprisingly no wobbling of the Concept 1 fan even with this 36" downrod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a little bit of genius. Because we live in a 100 year old building, the foot long downrod makes our fans workable with our beamed ceilings. Thanks so much for designing them to match the particular fan instead of a generic "one size fits all."

My living room is 2-story high ( 18' high). What is the best rod length for the downrods? Thanks  you

Asked by: Tony Jin
Hi there. Usually for a space with this high of a ceiling, it is good to leave a couple feet of room above the fan so that it can efficiently circulate air flow around the room. Probably the best bet would be to go with the 3 foot option, or 36". That way you still have 15 feet of space so the units will not seem too imposing in your living environment. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Parin YLighting Customer Service

We have a  10 ft ceiling.  How long a down rod do we need for the best efficiency and airflow?

Asked by: Bubbeleh
While it is important to leave enough room for air to circulate around the fan, getting a down rod that is too long can make the fan seem rather imposing in the room and not efficiently move air throughout the space. For a ceiling of 10 ft, go with a 12" down rod so that the room still feels open. The longer down rod options are primarily intended for vaulted ceilings and commercial spaces. Should you require some additional clarification beyond this and would like to speak to a product specialist directly, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we can assist you.
