There are two solutions to fit the Exhale fan on a double ceiling (given that the fan plus motor weighs 11 kilos).
1 - The first consists of placing a thin, light sheet of Opalin (pvc) 50cm x 50cm to increase the area which supports the weight.
2 - The second method, the safest, is to start by method 1 above but using 4 to 8 fairly long threaded rods in order to reach the ceiling concrete. The pvc support is thus fixed to the ceiling concrete for maximum stability and safety.

Double ceiling kit, supplied with the Exhale fan.
As with all ceiling fans, it is recommended that they are placed on a flat roof. If you still wish to place it on a sloping roof we strongly advise you against an angle of more than 30°
You can also instal your fan on a stem (with a sheet of pvc at the end of the stem if the latter does not have one)
Stems and fittings can be found here (or at the specialised store of your choice) : www.yak-ventilateur.com/tiges-de-prolongation-c102x1770823
In the latter case, we would remind you that the diameter of the fan is 86cms
We recommend that you have this type of installation done by a professional.
If you do not wish to instal your fan by yourself, you can have it done by an electrician (as with a traditional ceiling fan).

In general, we deliver within 8 days after reception of your order.

Solutions for payment in several instalments are available.
The 3D safe site allows an automatic payment to be made in 3 instalments without costs and without bank formalities.
The Exhale fan was designed to operate 24/24h. At speed 1 (120 rpm) the energy consumption is only 4 watts. Thanks to its very silent system you will probably not even notice that it is functioning.
If the height of the ceiling is less than 3m, we recommend 1 fan per multiples of 45/50m2 (i.e. 2 fans for a surface area of 90/100m2)
Over and above these dimensions or in the event of doubt, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Easy! To extend your Exhale fan life duration and make it look its best, you can use the following cleanup tools :
Our favorite method is by using a popular electro-magnetic duster, which can be added to a wand to reach high places. Running it along the outside and inside discs will collect any accumulated dust. You can also use a miniblind duster, a vacuum attachment, or a microfiber cloth.
There is no filter to change on the Exhale fan.
There are no exchangeables (worn parts) to change on the Exhale fan.
The Exhale fan is particularly adapted to even out the temperatures in a room. Therefore it is perfectly adapted to function alongside a fireplace, a fire insert or a stove. As far as possible, instal the Exhale near the wood fire for optimum efficiency.
All around the heat zone, the temperature is particularly high. Thanks to the Exhale fan, the circulated air stays at a regular temperature near the heat source.
All the fans that we deliver in France and in Europe are effectively 230v (EC standards). There is nothing particular to be done with regard to the electricity.

The remote control
It is possible to connect a ceiling fan with an ON/OFF switch for the electricity supply but it is not compulsory since the remote control is totally independent.
