Why should I get a pro to replace my ceiling fan?
Installing a ceiling fan can be an excellent, cost-effective way to circulate both cool and warm air. But ceiling fans are heavy, and replacing one involves tapping into your electrical system, allowing for adequate blade clearance, and bracing the ceiling fan correctly to keep it stable and secure. Even ceiling fan replacements that seem like they’ll be easy can go wrong in any number of ways. A pro has the experience and tools to do a ceiling fan replacement more quickly and smoothly than someone with no training.
The right fan and placement
The fan: Make sure you choose the right fan for your room. If you have lower ceilings, consider purchasing a low-ceiling mount. Typically, there should be 7 feet between the bottom of the ceiling fan and your floor, and there should be at least 12 inches between the ceiling fan blades and the ceiling—though 18 inches allows for optimal airflow.
The location: Usually a ceiling fan is installed in the center of room, and that's a good spot to ensure adequate clearance and air flow. Ceiling fans all use about the same amount of electricity, in most cases, so replacing one ceiling fan with another shouldn't require any electrical fixes. However, if the weight of your new ceiling fan is much higher than your old fan, your pro will need to install a new electrical box, rated to support the ceiling fan. The cost of a new electrical box is not included in service estimate.
