Ceiling Fan / April 26, 2018 / Glenna Gillespie
Consider the power, size and durability of all ceiling fan motors before making a decision. Although a larger fan is going to be more expensive than a smaller model, it will have more power and longer durability. This will keep the ceiling fan running without so much as a wobble or noise from wearing down. Another purchase factor is the overall durability and performance of a ceiling fan. Take into consideration the size, shape and pitch of the fan blades. Also consider the height distance between a ceiling fan and the actual ceiling in a room. If the ceiling fan is going to run too close to the ceiling, it will undoubtedly affect how the fan operates. Ceiling fans are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Taking the time to become educated on all the different variations of ceiling fans will ensure the right fit for any home or office.
The electrical contractor of today is using products that increase his productivity and maximize the potential profit of his labor. They have a large choice of nail-on products that already have the fasteners attached to the ceiling box and all they have to do is hold it in place and nail or screw it into a joist or truss for it to be secured. Many of these boxes are thermoplastics which are inexpensive and easy to manufacture. They also have the added advantage of not needing to be electrically grounded so this saves the additional labor that metal boxes require.
