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.
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!
Thinking of installing a new ceiling fan in your room? Then you will need to know how to choose the right one. Unfortunately, choosing a ceiling fan is not as simple as some may thing; in addition to design and looks, there are many other factors you will need to take into consideration when assessing its suitability for your use. Here, we examine some of these factors.
First of all, when you are trying to find the best fans for your home, you will want to consider the size. Ceiling fans can be found in a variety of different sizes; however, the size of the room you are buying for will definitely influence this decision. If you are buying fans for a smaller room, then you'll want to go for a smaller fan. However, for larger fans, you'll need something that moves a bit more air, so a large fan, like a 50-54 inch fan, is a great choice.
How big is the fan that you want to purchase a light kit for? Another good question. If the fan is a big sucker, say 44" - 52" blade span (or more), there's more likelihood that the fan will have a compatible light kit. Children's fans that are smaller have less chance of having a compatible kit. One thing you may want to consider is simply to purchase kits with your fan, when you purchase your fan. Often times when installing a fan, you simply need to think about how light comes into the room you're installing into. If you have lots of windows and light coming in, you won't need a light kit for this appliance. But if you are installing in a basement, garage, workshop, or other room with low light conditions, just purchase the light kit too. You don't even need to install it initially - put it away somewhere until you decide to install it.
