There are a number of benefits that come from installing a ceiling fan. For one, it can add a stylish flair to a room unlike a cumbersome A/C unit. In addition, ceiling fans can greatly improve air circulation, increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of heating and cooling in nearly any area around the home. Best of all, you may also see a dramatic decrease in your monthly energy bill. Our team of professional electricians at Floodlight Electric has ample experience handling these types of installation projects and we’d be happy to offer our services in helping you install a ceiling fan in your home.
Things to consider before installing a ceiling fan:
Before going through with your ceiling fan installation project, there are some factors you should take into account to ensure that you are satisfied with the outcome.
One, you should take measurements of the room you intend to place the fan in so you can get a good idea of what size fan you’d like to get. This step is important because for a successful installation the size of the fan you choose needs to match up with the size of the room. There’s a wide variety of fans to choose from; some with additional features such as light kits or remote controls. Whatever the nature of your ceiling is, (whether it’s high, sloped or low) there will be an option available that suits your needs.
By assessing the circumstances, you can get a sense of how simple or complicated the installation process will be. If you’re simply replacing an existing light fixture with a fan, a few adjustments to support the weight of the fan and install the necessary switches are all that would be needed to complete the installation. On the other hand, should you wish to install a fan in a spot where there isn’t any existing wiring, the job is more challenging, but is nothing our experienced electricians can’t handle.
