We built our home 15 years ago and installed two Emerson fans at that time. We have enjoyed the remote features of each fan more than any other amenity we had built into our most often used living spaces, the Great Room and the Master Suite. In the Master Suite the fan has run constantly winter and summer for the entire time. At some point we began to casually comment about what we would ever do in the event the fan finally broke down. After 14 years of constant service it finally did. We ordered another receiver and remote, had it installed professionally and it has been running constantly since. I do not use the word "constantly" lightly. The only time the fan has ever been off is when the power goes out. We use every feature of the receiver and remote 24/7. In 15 years we have replaced every major appliance in our home. Our Emerson remote fans are still running strong. In truth I believe the only reason our receiver quit is due to the remote wand. After 10 grandchildren who each in turn were fascinated with the "magic" remote wand it finally died.
