There are many variations, sizes, and styles when it comes to ceiling fans. The look and decor of the room should be considered when selecting a ceiling fan.  A ceiling fan installed in a room can not only circulate the air but can also enhance the look of the space. A light fixture can be added to a ceiling fan to illuminate the area.  When installing a ceiling fan, a junction box that is rated for proper support of the fan is a must.  Making sure that the wiring is safe for this application is also another important factor.


Other things to consider

  • -The ceiling height should be considered. The NEC (National Electrical Code) requires ceiling fan blades not hang down lower than seven feet.
  • -Mounting rods are available for higher ceilings.
  • -The quality and price of a ceiling fan normally go hand in hand.
  • -When choosing a ceiling fan for a bedroom, a quieter fan motor should be part of the equation when selecting the fan.
  • -Remote fan controls are also available for convenience.

We strongly recommend that the installation of a ceiling fan be left to a qualified electrician.

If the installation of a ceiling fan is not handled properly problems could occur. Fan failure or a fan falling from your ceiling can be the result. Keep your family safe and let your Licensed Electrical Contractor, Lauterborn Electric, install your ceiling fans.
