Ceiling Fan / April 23, 2018 / Hope Young
Dual Mounting: Fans that feature dual mounting are able to be mounted close to the ceiling or from a downrod. You can decide after purchasing your fan, which is optimal if you would like to see how the fan looks on the ceiling first. Downrods are inexpensive and can easily be applied to dual mounting fans for aesthetic purposes; for cathedral ceilings, a fan lowered with a downrod can provide an appearance of grandeur and luxury. Plus a lowered fan brings the breeze of your ceiling fan closer to you, for a slightly more concentrated or stronger breeze.
Next you will need to install the new electrical box that came in the box with your new ceiling. You will then need to glue on the ceiling medallion if your ceiling fan has one, if not skip to the next step. After the medallion is in place attach the ceiling plate. Take special care to make sure the screws are tight. Loose screws are one of the common issues a fan will make noise when it is on.
