Capitol Lighting Fanimation Review

by Nicole on July 26, 2012

Living in Florida every room has a ceiling fan.  We use them a lot to help move the air around and I’ve found with the fans going we can turn up the air conditioning 2 more degrees without feeling a difference! Our ceiling fans were here when we bought our house and aren’t the highest quality.  I was super excited when Capitol Lighting contacted me to see if I wanted to review a Fanimation fan!

I went online to research Capitol Lighting and was happy to find a showroom near me in Stuart.  There are 4 locations in Florida and 4 locations in New Jersey.  The showroom I visited was not large but the sales representative explained that they have a large warehouse

About Capitol Lighting: “Whether you’re seeking the ultimate chandelier, new fixtures for a kitchen remodel, stunning nighttime landscape effects or a complete lighting package to showcase your new home, Capitol Lighting stands ready to serve.

Capitol’s nine lighting stores are the offspring of a family retailing tradition that dates back to 1924, when Max Lebersfeld, an electrical contractor and recent immigrant from Austria-Hungary, opened an affordable lighting store in Newark, NJ. Four generations later, Capitol Lighting has expanded the concept to six locations in New Jersey and four in southeast Florida and in 2002 Capitol Lighting was given the award for New Jersey’s Family Business of the Year. Today, says Owner and President Herman Lebersfeld, “we have the largest inventory on hand and on display of any lighting retailer in the country.”

The typical Capitol Lighting store spans 12,000 square feet, which allow room for a huge selection. While many lighting showrooms boast a wide selection, Capitol Lighting delivers both a great selection, and affordable lighting.

That ability to see so many products firsthand is a distinct benefit when it comes to outfitting a new-construction home with a complete set of fixtures. After determining the desired style, reviewing an architect’s plans and visiting the home site (if requested), one of Capitol’s highly trained and experienced sales and design consultants can walk a customer through one of our lighting stores and point out fixtures that will meet the project’s needs, from our selection of affordable lighting.

Home lighting products have made great strides in recent years in terms of performance and styling. Walk into Capitol Lighting and you’re likely to be stunned by the variety of available designs, light sources, sizes and coordinating accessories on hand.”

Here is the video we made about our experience, you’ll notice my husband’s humor in selecting the music by Air Supply!

We truly had an excellent experience at Capitol Lighting with the selection of our fan as well as the installation.  The fan gives so much more air flow than our previous fan did and we are loving it! I am so happy they wanted me to review a Fanimation fan specifically because these are such well-made fans – that allow for increased air flow and come in stylish designs.  I wanted a white fan to match my light colored bedroom and was able to pick a funky light kit to go along with it that has added character and beauty to my bedroom.

About Fanimation:  “Fanimation ceiling fans have been utilized in a wide variety of venues ranging from residential homes to world renowned theme parks. Fanimation’s critically acclaimed ceiling fans designs have also been featured in Vanity Fair, Modernism and Phoenix Home and Garden. In addition to print publication, Fanimation has graced the silver screen in the movie I,Robot been featured on HGTV and also made an appearance on Extreme Makeover Home Addition. With designs like the traditional Americana®, the tropical Islander®, the transitional Akira™ and the contemporary Marea™, it easy to see why Fanimation is an industry leader with Hollywood appeal.

As Fanimation has continued to expand and develop its business operations, it has also increased its commitment to sustainable and energy efficient practices. Not only does Fanimation offer a wide selection of Energy Star rated ceiling fans, but it has also upgraded its warehouse operations with energy efficient lighting and the use of recycled materials in its product packaging. Perhaps the most significant contribution that Fanimation has made to sustainable practices in the last year is the introduction of the Landan™. The Landan is one of the only ceiling fans on the market that utilizes both the energy efficient DC motor and LED lighting.

By relentlessly pursuing a dream, creating a corporate culture based on family values, producing only the highest quality ceiling fans and developing sustainable products and business practices, Fanimation has become and will continue to be a leader in the ceiling fan industry.

I have recommended Capitol Lighting and Fanimation to friends looking to re-decorate their home.  The cost of the fan is such a small price compared to the money we are saving on our electricity bills.  Also, the cool breeze of the fan at night is a great way to sleep.  I can’t wait to go back to Capitol Lighting for a new chandelier for over my dining room table – I need one and they had such a great selection of lighting as well as fans that I want to go back!

You don’t need to live near a Capitol Lighting showroom, you can shop online and have your items delivered to you! Check out Capitol Lighting today.

I received a free fan and installation.  My opinions remain my own.
