The Benefits of Having a Ceiling Fan 

If you're on the fence about whether or not you need a ceiling fan, here are some of the main benefits they offer.

  • Air distribution

If you've recently added an addition to your home and your HVAC system is having trouble keeping up, fans in the right places can help distribute air evenly throughout your home. A ceiling fan installation is typically cheaper and easier than reworking your HVAC system.
However, if you want to rework or install a new HVAC system, contact us, and we can handle that job too!

  • Air circulation

One of the biggest issues that people have during the warm summer months of Texas is a lack of air movement. Constantly running your air conditioner is expensive and sometimes unnecessary. When all you need is to keep air moving and circulating through your home, ceiling fans are a great way to do it.

  • Increased comfort

The more air you have circulating throughout your home, the more comfortable you and your family will be.

  • Better lighting

Modern ceiling fans also come with an assortment of lighting attachments. These lights are ideal for interior decoration, but they're also very practical. Not only can your ceiling fan improve the comfort of a room, but it can also illuminate it.

  • Aesthetics

Ceiling fans have come a long way in terms of looks, and they're valued as much for their aesthetics as their practical use. As such, there are tons of different designs and features that modern ceiling fans have.

  • Efficient

Ceiling fans are also great if you want to reduce your carbon footprint by using less electricity. Fans can circulate and move air and increase the comfort of your home while using minimal power.

Where's the Best Place to Install Ceiling Fans?

The great thing about ceiling fans is that there isn't a wrong place to install them. Whether you're looking to increase airflow in your kitchen, dining area, basement, or bedroom, a ceiling fan is a great way to do it. There are even ceiling fans explicitly made for installing outside of your home. These fans often have waterproof features that make them splash-proof and weatherproof.

However, when installing a ceiling fan, you want to ensure it makes sense for the room. Here are some tips and tricks to remember.

  1. Install the ceiling fan in the center of the room or as close to it as possible to have maximum impact.
  2. Install the fan high enough so that it's not a head-banger but low enough to impact the entire room.
  3. Choose a fan that's the right size for your room.
  4. Whenever possible, install a ceiling fan where an old light fixture used to be so you don't have to run electricity to it.

Can I Install My Own Ceiling Fan?

If you want to perform your own ceiling fan installation, you're welcome to do so. However, ceiling fans are tricky, and they have specific requirements that you won't be aware of without the proper training. Unless you have previous electrical experience or lots of DIY knowledge and capabilities, you're likely to cause more harm than good by trying to install your own ceiling fan.

Requirements for Ceiling Fan Installation

As previously mentioned, there are certain requirements for a ceiling fan installation.

Adequate Support

Many people don't realize how heavy ceiling fans are until they hold one in their hands. They can weigh between 30 and 60 pounds, making them much heavier than most lights. As a result, they require special housing and mounting boxes in the ceiling and strong beams to fasten to. Failing to mount your ceiling fan with adequate support will result in it crashing down on top of you during operation.

Adequate Electricity and Wires

Because most modern ceiling fans have light features, they require four wires instead of the traditional three for lights. If you're mounting a fan where a light used to be, a licensed electrician will know how to fish an extra wire to the fan or make whatever's present work.

Proper Wiring

Finally, ceiling fans operate 100% on electricity. Therefore, the only way they'll do what they're supposed to is if they're correctly wired during installation. Remember, ceiling fans have an extra wire, making their installation more complicated than traditional fixtures. Attaching the wrong wire to the wrong place could result in a damaged ceiling fan or even electrocution.
