According to the manufacturer, Vortex fans are completely maintenance free - no oiling necessary.

All rotating equipment manufacturers say that the equipment needs no lubrication.

All this means is that it will wear out sooner than it should and you will have to buy a new fan sooner. You can install lubrication fittings on bearings.

This may be true, but Vortex fans carry a 10 year warranty, so I think you're covered :)
