The Hunter Builder Deluxe is an attractive, elegant fan that comes at a very reasonable price. Its Whisper Wind three speed motor lets it run without making any noise no matter what speed it is set at.
The fan is non-compatible with efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs, meaning you will lose out on some of the energy savings when you use the light fixture. The fan cannot be flush mounted but does come with a short three inch down rod to mount it on.
The Hunter Builder Deluxe comes with five beautiful Brazilian cherry or stained oak blades, giving it an elegant feel that will fit in with any décor. Its powerful three speed motor lets it move up to 5,110 cubic feet of air per minute and cool a room as large as 400 square feet, all without making a sound. The light fixture is made of frosted toffee colored glass, giving your room warm illumination. If you decide that you don’t want or need the light fixture, it is possible to mount the fan without it.
The fan is designed to be easy to install and can be installed in any room, even one with an angled ceiling. It comes with a lifetime warranty on the motor, as well as a one year warranty on the other parts of the fan. Accessories, such as a remote control are available if you want to make this already great fan even better.

The Hunter Builder Deluxe is equipped with a Whisper Wind three speed motor. Even at the highest speed settings the motor is silent, the only noise you will be able to hear is the sound of the air keeping your room cool. This means that you only have to worry about how cool you want to keep your home, not how much noise you are willing to put up with.
This fan is not the most energy efficient, moving less than 80 cubic feet of air per minute. The fact that the light fixture’s instructions recommend against using fluorescent light bulbs also reduces the energy efficiency of the fan. While the savings in air conditioning costs will more than make up for these costs, a more efficient fan would allow you to capture even more savings.
Why Hunter Builder Deluxe?
The Hunter Builder Deluxe is an elegant, attractively designed fan that meets all of the basics, but does not do much beyond that. It moves enough air to keep a sizable room cool and can be reversed to help heat a room in the winter, but the low energy efficiency and incompatibility with fluorescent bulbs keep it from being a truly great fan. If you need a fan that is incredibly quiet with a sophisticated design and don’t mind it need a bit more energy to run, the Hunter Builder Deluxe is the right fan for you.
