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.
When first thinking about getting a ceiling fan the average person does not really know what is needed, this is why Hunter ceiling fans are amazingly flexible and make all kinds of different blade sizes and low profiles, this kind of thinking is what makes it almost sure that any house and any room could have a Hunter ceiling fan installed in it, and not only can it be installed, with Hunter Ceiling Fan progressive thinking almost everyone can do it with a friendly and easy installation and maintenance kit. 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.
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.
Contrary to popular belief, ceiling fans are not for the hot-weather months alone. Sure, they provide that extra cooling power in summer, but did you know that you can use your fan in winter, too? That's right. A ceiling fan can also help to make the hot air from your heater rise in winter, as well. All you have to do is to reverse the rotation of the blades. Just hit the switch and make your blades move counterclockwise. This cause the fan to pull the air instead of push it. This is especially beneficial if you live in a two-story home. Myself, I do live in a two story house, and I find that on moderate winter days I can pull the hot air from downstairs and thus not have to use the upstairs heater at all. Since first discovering this simple technique, I have cut my electricity bill in winter by 25%. Yes, it really works!
In this article, we are going to address how to install a ceiling fan. We will walk you through it with step by step instructions on how to do so. Remember, all fans are different and you will need your manufacturer's instruction. This is a basic outline that provides some tips but it is not a substitute for the manual.
