When deciding on your ceiling fan ratings, you should make a list of qualities you want in a fan. You should think about the look of the fan, the features of the fan, how the fan is made, etc.
You will also find that the motor type is important when you are trying to pick out the best fan. There are two types of motors that are usually used in ceiling fans - friction driver motors and direct drive motors. Usually a direct drive motor is the best choice, since they last longer and have fewer parts that are separated. However, they do tend to be a bit more expensive, but are well worth the extra money you'll pay.
So, you're sold on the idea of installing ceiling fans. The next step is to decide what brand, style, etc. you're going to invest your money in. Do the research. Find out who the major players are in the manufacture of ceiling fans and how long they've been at it. It's not necessarily who sells the most ceiling fans but rather, what consumers say about the various brands. The Internet can help but you have to be wary about sales pitches that are disguised as testimonials. My personal preference is Westinghouse because of a multitude of factors that I'm not going to get into since this article is intended to focus more on the installation end of the ceiling fan rather than what to buy.
So, after a few years, you may begin to notice the motor housing beginning to show signs of wear with vibrating and other noise being the telltale signs. There's nothing you can do to fix these problems besides investing in another fan (throwing good money after bad). Also, cheaper fans often have blades that are made of inferior material which may begin to warp or go out of balance. While you can do a temporary fix for this kind of problem, you're going to end up with a chronic headache since the basic cause of the problem just won't go away no matter how many times you try to fix it.
In our years working in this field we have come to find out that many people have no idea how to install a ceiling fan. To be clear, it is not an EASY project. However, it is also not terribly difficult. You just need to take your time, follow the manufacturer's instructions and keep cool and collected. That's what we are here to help you do!
