I have a three prong on order and may swap it as this fan is for my fiancé and I’d like the piece of mind. I don’t really see it adding much real world safety though because of the GFCI already in play. I really appreciate the sanity check from you all.
Beautiful fans Alex! That is the exact point I was going to use for ground if I do add one.

Thank you everyone! Great bunch of people here on AFCA!

Thank you for the kind words, Damien!

My house is a 70s ranch with original wiring setup. A ground can give definite piece of mind, even though the safety factor may be 5%-10%. Good enough to put the wire on for unattended fans. PLUS! I like the look of the triple twist headwire and matching twisted pair line wire with a function(I guess I could use triple twist and not ground it. Haha).

Cheers?
