Install a Ceiling Fan With the Help of an Electrician
The average ceiling fan weighs about 40 lbs. The bulk of this weight is the motor, of course. The blades usually don’t weigh that much, nor does the hardware to attach them. Speaking of which, ceiling fans are not pre-assembled. You’re going to have to put them together. As a rule, you usually connect the ceiling fan motor to the ceiling mount, and then attach the blades, but ceiling fans vary based on manufacturer. That’s why it’s best to call a residential electrician to install a ceiling fan.
Ceiling fan installation is often harder than it looks, in fact. Why? Well it is due to the amount of variance between fans. A simple ceiling fan will not require the same level of installation that a complex remote controlled fan with a light and a dimmer switch is going to need. The size of the ceiling fan is also going to be a factor as well.
Some ceiling fans are much larger than others. a ceiling fan that’s designed for a small room is going to be smaller in size than a ceiling fan designed for a living room with a larger ceiling. Ceiling fans also vary in price based on not just their size but their features as well. It can be confusing to know which ceiling fan to get as well as how to install it. That’s another thing that a residential electrician can help you with, picking out the fan that works best for your home and your situation. Once you have installed a ceiling fan however,
the benefits far outweigh the challenges of installing one.
The Benefits of Installing a Ceiling Fan
Arizona is obviously someplace a ceiling fan works very well. Why? Well, it saves you some money on your electric bill. Most people like their homes cool, but to cool a fairly good size home you could end up spending $400 a month in electric bills, due largely to summer rates. However, did you know with a ceiling fan, you can set your room temperature slightly higher and kick the ceiling fan on? It will start circulating the air, putting less strain on your air conditioner. You can have your air set at about 78 degrees and have it feel like you’ve got it set at 69.
A ceiling fan adds to any room that it’s installed in. When it’s time to install one however, don’t try to do it on your own. Call a residential electrician in Phoenix to install it for you.
