Some people have vaulted ceilings which can make it difficult for installing a ceiling fan of a larger size. It will also make it difficult to position the fan properly if your ceiling is vaulted. Once you have selected the correct type of fan for your ceiling, it will be time to get started. With this tutorial of installing a ceiling fan, if you've never installed a lighting fixture before, you'll want to pay close attention to the instructions listed below.
Ceiling fans come in all styles, everything from antique to tropical to modern. They come in all colors, ranging from gold to white, silver, red, green, whatever color suits your style. They also come in all kinds of materials, like brass, bronze, and even chrome. When choosing a ceiling fan for you, remember, a good fan not only matches the decor of your room, it can anchor it and bring it all together.

Another nice feature that the Hunter ceiling fans have is an optional light kit on many of its models so you can use the ceiling fan as a light too, saving yet more space and using the unique and special design of the Hunter ceiling fan for your lighting needs.
The industry has determined that the cooling effect of a ceiling fan can make a room feel at least 7 degrees cooler than it really is and the consequent adjustment to your thermostat can cut your air conditioning related energy costs by as much as 35% to 45%. In the cold months, reversing the fan blades so they push warm air down from the ceiling can reduce your heating expenses as well. Some experts maintain that you can save between 8% to 12% on your heating bill.
Another question you may want to ask is, is the fan that you want to install a kit onto worth installing? The reason this is also important is based on the age of the fan you currently have installed. If you have a relatively new fan that has just been installed in the last year or two, this likely won't be a problem. However, if you installed a fan 10 years back and now you want to find a light kit for it - don't bother. Having a fan that is that old means it will be next to impossible to find parts for it. If the fan should break down later after you install your kit, and you can't find the part you need - well, you basically wasted some money there.
