we recently installed a ceiling fan in our new addition. The ceilings are 14ft high and are faulted. The fan is mounted on a 6in stem. when turned on no matter what setting it is on high,med or low. set for blowing air up or down. you can't feel any air. is there something wrong with the fan? we have 3 other fans and they all blow alot of air.

the first thing i thought was that the fan is too small for the area.

I have the same problem that is worsen with really low ceilings on seven feet tall.
So i use huger fans and the seems to be worse at times.
I call it fan cavitation and wonder if there is a solutin to this.

Same problem here! We have a high, vaulted ceiling in our bedroom, and if the room's door is closed there is no air at all felt at the lowest or middle speeds. The fan is on a drop that doesn't look too long, and with the slanted ceiling the blade tips are even closer. Some kind if turbulence or cavitation sounds like it could explain this! But I've been to numerous websites looking for info, without much success.

The same thing here with the slanted ceilings. I am convinced I need a longer downrod. Gigggity
