Ceiling fans are one of the least respected electrical fixtures that we have encountered. They seem so simple to hang that homeowners often take the plunge and attempt an installation on their own. Ceiling fans seem harmless when inside the box, but when you hang them above your sleeping quarters and set them to spin at almost 200 RPM, we would rather you feel confident that it was done right. Our electricians are qualified to correctly assemble your ceiling fan and install it on an approved box.
The secret is in the support. Years ago, fixture boxes didn't have much of a support rating, so even a replacement fan today might very well require a new support box. Fan support boxes are specialty boxes specifically designed for ceiling fans weighing up to its listed rating. It is necessary to choose the correct fixture box for the application.
Your fan more than likely has a direction switch on the outside of the motor. In the summer, make sure the blades rotate counter-clockwise to cool off your room. In the winter, flip the switch to clockwise to push the warm air from the ceiling down to the rest of the room. Contact us for professional assistance in assembling and mounting your ceiling fan.
