Airflow Performance
5/5

i6’s direct-drive motor and six aircraft-grade aluminum airfoils can move nearly 16,000 cubic feet (453 cubic meters) of air per minute. The brushless DC motor and aerodynamic airfoil design minimize mechanical friction and wind resistance, keeping airflow consistent throughout the coverage area.

Airflow Coverage Area
5/5

A 72-inch (183-centimeter) i6 can provide airflow over an area of 882 square feet (82 square meters). The fan’s wide coverage allows it to improve occupant comfort and air circulation in commercial and residential spaces of virtually any size.

Annual Energy Use
5/5

With a max power draw of only 42 watts and a max efficiency of 370 CFM/watt, i6 is rated ENERGY STAR® “Most Efficient” for 2020. The fan’s air movement and coverage area allow businesses and homeowners to save year-round on cooling and heating costs by reducing the need for A/C in summer and improving the circulation of heated air in winter. i6’s efficient airflow and resulting energy savings more than offset the fan’s modest estimated annual operational cost of US$4.92—just $0.01 per day.

Controls
5/5

i6 offers control options to suit any preference. A point-anywhere Bluetooth remote with magnetic wall holder or fixed wall control allows users to adjust fan speed as well as the optional LED’s light level and color temperature from anywhere within their Wi-Fi network. Built-in SenseMe™ technology uses the fan’s temperature, humidity, and motion sensors to monitor room conditions and automatically adjust operation to maintain occupant comfort. With the i6 mobile app, users can set airflow and lighting preferences, schedule routine operations, and access the fan’s special operational modes—Sleep, Timer, and Whoosh—as well as the LED’s Dim to Warm function. Fan owners can also integrate with ecobee smart thermostats or use Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to control their fan and light with voice commands.

Sound Level
5/5

i6’s permanent-magnet motor eliminates brush friction and minimizes mechanical noise, while its aerodynamic airfoils produce practically no wind turbulence. Measuring at less than 35 dBA at max RPM, i6 offers nearly silent performance, with sound level comparable to a whisper. When run at low speeds for destratification, the fan’s operational sound is imperceptible at occupant level.

Quality Quality The fan’s materials, engineering, and manufacturing process determine its durability and longevity.

Durability
5/5

i6 features aircraft-grade extruded aluminum airfoils that never droop or crack and a three-piece cast aluminum hub system. Its efficient brushless DC motor runs cool with minimal heat output, and its anodized airfoils feature Airfoil Lock technology for optimal security.

Warranty
5/5

i6 features a non-prorated 5-year residential and 3-year non-residential warranty (3-year residential and 2-year non-residential for outdoor models). Big Ass Fans’ warranties are noteworthy for their straightforward terms and factory-direct service.

Warranty terms vary by region. See bigassfans.com/product-warranties/ for full details.

Performance Certifications
5/5

i6 has undergone extensive third-party testing by the U.S. Department of Energy and received multiple international and ENERGY STAR certifications to guarantee accurate performance claims and adhere to industry regulations and standards.

Required Maintenance
5/5

i6 features a balanced mounting system, corrosion-resistant anodized airfoils and ball bearings, and a gearless direct-drive motor that quickly dissipates heat. The fan should be wiped clean as needed, especially in demanding industrial or outdoor applications, but otherwise, i6 requires minimal maintenance.

Motor and Drive Protection
5/5

i6 is rated IPX5 for protection against sprays, splashes, and low pressure jets of water. The fan motor and drive are fully covered, while its stainless-steel ball bearings resist corrosion caused by moisture and oxidation, making i6 suitable for indoor and outdoor use. A foam block in the motor shaft and sealed LED kit offer further protection from the elements in outdoor applications.

Safety Safety Strong redundant safety features and verified product testing are essential for secure, consistent operation.

Static Safety Features
5/5

i6 secures its universal mount and flush-mount options with durable, corrosion-resistant hardware, and the fan’s lightweight design secures comfortably to a standard fan junction box. The six extruded aluminum airfoils are engineered to resist impact damage and weathering. All models of i6 include a safety cable and tilt restrictors for redundant safety. Available guy wires stabilize the fan in applications with high ceilings and those experiencing wind gusts, while a foam block in the motor shaft protects against water intrusion. Additionally, i6 uses corrosion-resistant stainless-steel ball bearings that ensure smooth operation and long product life.

Dynamic Safety Features
5/5

i6 reflects the same care and attention to safety that Big Ass Fans applies to large-diameter industrial fans. Its durable three-piece hub system includes an integrated airfoil retention system, while patent-pending Airfoil Lock technology prevents the fan from operating if any airfoil is not properly secured to the hub. The fan’s Auto-Balance feature adjusts operation to prevent wobbling or rattling which would otherwise strain the mount and bearings.

Safety Certifications
5/5

i6’s safety is proven through rigorous testing. The fan holds an international CB Test Certificate for passing CB Scheme safety certification and is ETL listed to UL507 and CSA Standard 22.2 No. 113. At Big Ass Fans’ research lab, the fan has undergone successful impact testing, mount tensile testing, and stress testing of hub and airfoil systems, the results of which far surpass competitor testing in scope and performance.

Facility Integration
5/5

Like other Big Ass overhead fans, i6 offers integration with building management systems (BMS) with its optional 0-10 VDC module for convenient, centralized facility control.

Patented and Proprietary Features
5/5

Featuring award-winning design and efficiency, i6 is a popular choice for modern design and sustainability projects. The fan’s permanent-magnet motor, airfoil systems, and industrial-style motor housing are designed exclusively by Big Ass Fans, while its patent-pending SenseMe technology and mobile app were developed in-house.
