Installing a ceiling fan is one of those jobs that you may think you can do yourself. It seems easy enough to connect a few wires and tighten a few screws. However, an improper installation of your ceiling fan can have negative consequences. Here are some things that you can count on an electrician to do to avoid any damage:
- Proper ceiling box – Different fans require different ceiling boxes. Using the wrong ceiling box will cause the fan to not be supported properly. An electrician is knowledgeable in which box to use with each fan.
- No ceiling damage – A ceiling fan can cause damage to the ceiling of your house if it is not buffered correctly. Proper buffering can be completed by an electrician.
- Correct wiring – One of the most challenging parts of installing a ceiling fan is correctly connecting the wires. Incorrect wiring can be extremely dangerous and even cause a house fire. An electrician will make sure that your ceiling fan is wired correctly.
- Quick installation – An experienced electrician will be able to install a ceiling fan much quicker than you will be able to. This gives you more free time to focus on other responsibilities.
