Ceiling Fan / April 25, 2018 / Arlene Hart
This one of the most important aspects to installing your ceiling fan. A full assembly fan weighs alot. Actually, even the small ones weigh alot. Fans also move; a ceiling fan could not be mounted on a standard lighting fixture. It will most likely tumble to the floor. Most ceiling fan manufacturers have standard instructions packaged for mounting the fan to a certain type of mounting item above the junction item. This will be your best bet, but another option is installing a special fan box, either on the mounting or latched to it.
What is it you should be looking for when choosing a ceiling fan? Of course there are many factors, but just like choosing any other home appliance, like a refrigerator or a washer/dryer, you should be thinking of not only decor and style, but functionality as well. Here I will go over the many different aspects, some tangible, some intangible, of choosing the right ceiling fan for you.
