Ceiling Fan Installation

Ceiling Fan Wiring

As with most other electric installations, a ceiling fan must be wired correctly. Proper wiring is essential if you are wiring it on an existing mount or connecting it to a junction box. There is also a possibility of mounting the light on the ceiling fan itself if the model of a ceiling fan allows it. Wiring can be dangerous and time-consuming, which is why Milton Electricians are experienced in working quickly and safely.

Why Hire an Electrician?

Installing a ceiling fan in your room can be a challenge. That’s why you should leave it to a certified electrician.

First, we will ensure you have a proper power source drawn into the ceiling on which you want your fan installed. Many ceiling fans are installed on a light fixture that may no longer be used.

A junction box will need to be installed when installing a ceiling fan where one never existed. This small metal or plastic box provides added protection against physical damage to wires and prevents fires.

We also check the fan’s balance. This is usually done by adjusting the fan’s base and blades.

Common Questions

What are the benefits of a ceiling fan?

  • ✔ A Great Source of Light and Illuminates the Room
  • Reduced Utility Bill
  • ✔ Quieter than an AC Unit

Can a dimmer switch control a ceiling fan?

There are several kinds of accessories you may want with your ceiling fan. You should never use a dimmer controller to regulate the fan’s rotation speed – or even operation. Instead, use a regular switch, combined with special speed controllers. Your electrician can easily offer and recommend the appropriate switch depending on the type of fan.

How long does ceiling fan last?

Many ceiling fans last around ten years.

Should I consider installing an outdoor ceiling fan?

Yes. If you want to stay warm during the winter and cool during the summer, ceiling fans are a perfect choice. Ceiling fans push the air upwards during the warmer days and downwards during warmer ones. Also, outdoor ceiling fans can handle strong weather conditions.
