Ceiling Fan Installation
Ceiling fans are great inventions. With the flick of a switch you can reduce the perceived temperature in a room by up to 7 degrees. In the winter a properly installed ceiling fan can push the warm air from a high ceiling down to the where it’s needed. Not all ceiling fan installations are the same. Choosing the right electrician is very important. Some fan installations involve complex wiring for switches and control systems. If you need help with a ceiling fan installation call the professional electricians at Daniel Electric. We’ve installed thousands of fans over the years. We have the knowledge and experience to keep the cost down for even the most complex fan installation.
Did you know?
- All ceiling fans require a mounting box rated for ceiling fans and the box must be braced and blocked to prevent it from falling.
- Wiring is required to be a minimum of #14 guage (14/2 or 14/3) romex cable run from the switch location to the fan.
- Some fans have remote switching and only require wiring to the fan location. The fan is controlled using a hand held remote control.
- All fans are required to be properly grounded.
- Your fan should blow downward in the summer (downdraft or counter clockwise rotation).
- Your fan should blow upward in the winter (updraft or clockwise rotation).
- Dust can damage a ceiling fan motor.
- Fans don’t actually cool a room. They just change how cool the room feels.
