The Redington is a 52 inch ceiling fan with a brushed steel finish. It has five blades which are reversible. The fan comes with a remote, and a limited lifetime warranty (see Hampton Bay warranty details for more information as to what this covers). Be aware that the remote does not come with batteries, so you’ll have to purchase batteries for the remote before you’ll
be able to use it. The fan does come with a 4.5 inch down rod.
At the time of this writing in 2022, the Redington does not have very good reviews when taking a look at the major manufacturers. On the Home Depot website, the Redington brushed steel
52 inch ceiling fan has both 1 star reviews – which is pretty bad. Although there are only two reviews of the fan on that website, neither is good. One user reports that the chandelier bulbs didn’t provide enough light in their office. The other review reports that the fan wasn’t too bad to install, but the light kit does not work very well at all – similar to the other user’s post about the lights being too dim. The site visitor goes on to say that it may be a better idea to purchase a Hunter fan, and does not recommend the Redington to other site visitors.
A third person answering a question says that the fan does not even do a good job of lighting up a small closet. Redington does have a bit of a history behind it. The first Redington fan was introduced in 1990. The style of that fan was very different from what you would find in the Redington IV. Originally, the model was designed as an “ultra-modern” fan which had an integrated light kit with four lights, and a useful remote control.
If looking for the manual for your Redington IV ceiling fan, you can find the downloadable PDF manual here. This is very useful if you’re looking for information direct from the manufacturer in terms of diagnosis, troubleshooting, or warranty information. The manual can also help if looking for a specific part for the Redington IV ceiling fan, or if you are searching for a parts list.
At the time of this writing, the Redington IV is not available at major retailers. If after reading reviews, you still want to purchase this fan, then you can purchase it on Ebay. It costs approximately $100 USD (before shipping costs, which may be extra). Just make sure you read the reviews from site visitors first!

Questions related to the Hampton Bay Latham Ceiling Fan:
No, the fan cannot be installed flush mount to the ceiling. The fan is dual mount, which means it can be mounted either standard or sloped. In both cases, a downrod is utilized. This can be confusing because typically dual mount sounds like it means you can install both with and without a downrod.
For a flushmount or hugger style fan, take a look at the Windward IV brushed nickel fan
This fan utilizes two 60-watt candelabra bulbs, which don’t come included with the fan.
Typically, being able to use the remote should work right out of the box. If the remote is not working, try changing the batteries. If that does not work, make sure the dip switches are programmed the same on both the remote as well as the receiver.
