It is advised to use the appropriate UL-listed metal outlet box marked \"For Use with Ceiling Fans.\" The box is mounted above the ceiling and houses all wiring needed to operate and connect the ceiling fan. If you are replacing a ceiling fixture, most likely you will need to replace the electrical box. To avoid complications, it is best to hire a licensed electrician to install the ceiling fan. Be sure to check references, and make sure the contractor is properly insured and holds the proper certification.

Lights can be added while mounting the fan, and there are three types of lighting methods to choose from: downlights, uplights, or one of the popular light kits. Uplights and downlights are just as they sound with uplights pointing toward the ceiling, and downlights pointing toward the center of the room. Each provides a slightly different effect. Uplights emanate an aura-like gleam to dress up a ceiling, and downlights brighten an entire room with a radiant glow. Light kits also come with many ceiling fans and can be classified as a type of downlight. The light kit replaces any central lighting that was previously hanging from the ceiling.

Airplane ceiling fans come in many different types of planes. The Fantasy Flyer fan seems to be among the most popular. The plain is blue with some red and gray, it is the authentic replica of F4U Corsair. The wings of the fan are set against the ceiling and the blades are the propellers. Other popular kids ceiling fans include the Warbird series made by Craftmade. The Miss America features the colors of the American flag, red, white and blue with white stars. The blades are 48\" and white. The Tiger Shark has a shark mouth as the motor cover, a red nose with a light at the tip and 48\" black blades. The Glamorous Glen features yellow and red checkered nose with a silver motor cover and 58\" black blades with yellow tips.

By walking up and down the aisles and looking at the various fans that are displayed on the ceilings above, you'll be able to see how much lower some fans hang than others do. By sticking with the options that hug the ceiling, you'll have your light and air circulation back and in working condition in no time. Many times you can get really good deals on low profile fans. When ceiling fans first came back into vogue, they were quite expensive. Now, however, they have come down in price even though their overall quality has markedly improved. You'll find that with a low profile fan you'll even have room to add a light kit if you choose. They also make types of lights that don't hang down nearly as far as other models do.

This is because the die cast motor housings reduce the fan's noise and keep the fan stable. You will also want your fan to have bearings that are permanently lubricated and it should have an oil reservoir that is sealed. Pitch refers to the angle at which the blades sit on the fan. Typically, the pitch of the fan's blades will range from eight up to fifteen degrees. Air moves far better under a fan with a high pitched blade.

There are times when the weather just isn't quite hot enough to merit turning on the expensive air-conditioning, but you still need a little air movement in your home to make it feel more comfortable. That's when a ceiling fan is perfect. If you don't have air conditioning at all, then you'll be even more appreciative of a quiet, unobtrusive way of cooling off. Although the interior designers on home improvement shows tend to scoff at having ceiling fans, they are a practical and comforting addition to any room.

Since ceiling fans are usually used to replace or update an existing light fixture all the wiring should already be done for you. If you are installing a new fan in a non-wired location and do not have a clue about wiring please for your own safety consult a professional. One thing you must do before you do any wiring or installation is to make sure the power is off and no one will turn it back on until you are finished.

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.

The most common ceiling fan operation entails a pull chain/pull chord control that extends downwards from the operational center point of the ceiling fan. This controls the fan speed cycle that can be set to high, medium, low or off with a pull of the chord. The next ceiling fan operation setting is a variable speed control. For this setting, a hand controlled dial sets a different speed for the fan. A variation on this mounts the speed dial on a nearby wall as opposed to the fan itself. New ceiling fans emerge onto the market displaying a wireless remote control system. Working in much the same way as a television remote, an infrared beam is sent from a hand held controller to the fan controlling operation with the touch of a button.

You will also need to pay special attention to securing the blades to the base of the fan. This will not only help with the performance of the ceiling fan but also reduce any noise you will have from the fan when using it. Once you have completed all of these steps you can turn your electricity back on and start enjoying the breeze from your brand new fan.
