Electrical & Lighting – Installing a Ceiling Fan

Installing a ceiling fan is one of the best ways to save on your heating and cooling costs. Installing a ceiling fan is not difficult, but all it takes is some planning and maybe a helping hand to hold the ceiling fan in place. If you are unsure about working with electricity, you should contact a licensed electrician to install the ceiling fan for you. However, if you are confident about installing a ceiling fan after watching this video, this is a great DIY project. First, you will want to shut off the power and disassemble the original ceiling fan. You want to secure the existing electrical box to a strong brace, like a 2×4, so the ceiling fan blades will not wobble when operating. Lay out all the parts for installing a ceiling fan and closely follow manufacturer’s instructions. Install the ceiling fan, reconnect the wires, paint the ceiling as needed, assemble the ceiling fan blades, and attach the light fixture with a new light bulb. Turn the electricity back on and make certain the ceiling fan is working properly. If you need advice on installing a ceiling fan, just ask the friendly staff at Friedman’s Home Improvement.
