A ceiling fan doesn’t just make an impact as a key fixture in a room--it improves air circulation, which can make heating and cooling more effective and efficient in just about any area of your home. Whether you have high, sloped, or low ceilings or need an integrated light fixture or remote controls, you’re sure to find a ceiling fan that’s the perfect fit for your application.
Adding a Ceiling Fan
Adding a ceiling fan to your home is a great way to increase comfort without compromising on style or convenience. If you have a light fixture in the place you’d like to install a fan, a few upgrades to support the weight of the fan and install appropriate switches are all that’s needed to make the conversion. If you’d like to add a fan in a spot with no existing wiring, the job is a bit more complex, but still a routine project for an experienced pro. Since new wiring and a switch are required to install a ceiling fan, it’s a job for a licensed electrician.
Ceiling Fan Replacement
If you have a ceiling fan that’s due for replacement, installing a new model in the same location is a straightforward job for a pro. In most cases, the existing wiring and switch can be used so you’ll be up and running with your new fan in record time. If installing a replacement fan calls for changes or upgrades to wiring, supports, or switches, the job may take a bit longer.
Whether you’re adding a ceiling fan in a new location or upgrading an existing fan to a new model, the job involves working with your home’s wiring. A licensed electrician can handle the job safely and will be sure to verify the power supply, switch, and supports are appropriate for your new ceiling fan.
