    How Hard Is It To Install a Ceiling Fan?

    The answer to that question depends on a lot of factors.  How much electrical experience do you have?  How about carpentry?  Do  you have the proper tools?  Can you hold something heavy over your head for long periods of time?  All of these things are key to installing a ceiling fan.

    The average ceiling fan is a weighty item.  They can be anywhere between 10 and 50 lbs depending on the hardware and wiring involved.  Unlike a box fan that one merely unplugs and moves to wherever it’s needed, a ceiling fan is a permanent fixture wherever it is installed.  So you have to make sure that you have compatible electrical wiring in the area that you wish to put the ceiling fan in. After installation, you have to make sure that the ceiling fan is properly balanced and leveled.  But it isn’t just wiring and leveling that you need to be aware of.

    Installing a Ceiling Fan Means You Might Have to Do Some Carpentry Work Too

    Another reason to hire a Mesa electrician to install your ceiling fan for is is that installing a ceiling fan means that you might have to do some carpentry work too.  As we stated above, ceiling fans can be heavy.

    An electrician often comes with an apprentice or helper, so that not only does the job go quickly, it goes smoothly.  A ceiling fan must be properly installed, or you have a time bomb on your hands.

    Adding to the fact that even if it is properly leveled, ceiling fans vibrate a little.  You want to make sure that the ceiling beams in your attic can support the weight of your ceiling fan.  If not, picture this.  You’re sitting at your dinner table with your family and in the back of the house, you hear a loud crash.

    You go back and see your ceiling fan has fallen from the ceiling, the light fixture has shattered, and the falling fan has cracked your travertine tile.  In addition, there is now a gaping hole in the ceiling where the ceiling fan mount was.  All because the weight of the fan was too much.  If someone had been underneath that when it fell, you could find yourself or someone you care about in the emergency room.

    So don’t be a household injury statistic.  Call a licensed electrician in Mesa instead.
