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.

With the advent of electricity, ceiling fans quickly spread throughout the world, becoming the standard cooling method in every enclosed space you can imagine: houses, stores, movie theaters, you name it. Even though one thinks mostly of ceiling fans to fight the hot weather, they are also pretty useful to help warm up the environment. When used together with any form of heating equipment, ceiling fans make a wonderful maximizing efficiency. As everyone knows, hot air rises - therefore, warm air will inevitably rise up until it's close to your ceiling - not the most efficient place to be. Using your ceiling fan spinning in the opposite direction will help spread the warm air around, meaning you'll make big savings in your heating bill. Most ceiling fans come with a \"winter/summer\" switch for that exact reason. You'll be able to use it all year round - it's not just a \"summer\" device. That's why you still see industrial ceiling fans in most shopping malls and any wide-open area stores. Even though they have big and powerful air conditioning units running continuously, the ceiling fans help maximize its efficiency. And the exact same thing is true if you use it in at home. Even if you have a furnace or air conditioning units, you should still consider installing ceiling fans. Often, just turning on the ceiling fan will be enough to cool everyone down, saving you from turning on your air conditioning system. And in those really hot days you need to turn the AC on, the ceiling fans will help reach a comfortable environment around your house much faster. And the same thing applies to those cold winter days, when you have to have to heat your place.

Remember the rule of thumb: Measure twice cut once. This will save you from making the mistake of cutting the hole to big to fit the fan you have purchased.

But if the joist is not located in the center of the room where the fan is to mounted, a special ceiling fan mounting bracket with spiked ends should be installed between joists.

There are some instructions for installing hugger fans like while installing pull all the wires straight down and pass them from the opened punched box and then carefully hang the fan motor assembly on the hook of the ceiling. Always connect the wires of hugger fans with properly sized wire nuts. Place a good lock washer and then carefully assemble each blade and then install light bulb if using a light kit. So, go for Hugger fan, if you really want to have a good sleep.

You don't want to get too big of a fan for the room and you definitely don't want a fan that is too small for the room. A good rule of thumb is that a one hundred foot square room, the fan should have blades of thirty six inches. If the room is between one hundred fifty and two hundred twenty five square feet should have fan blades that are forty eight inches long. Low ceilings require a different type of fan than a high ceiling fan. High ceilings require the fan to have down rods because down rods will circulate the air to the living space. Low ceilings should be fitted with a fan that is flush mount or hugger. A sloped ceiling needs to have an angled mount and you need to make sure that, no matter what type of fan you get, that the blades are at least seven feet up.

This is the most common use, but they are just as useful for keeping a room warm when it is cold outside during those winter months. Make sure you purchase a fan that will blow in the downwards direction during warm weather and upwards in cold weather. Blowing upwards will cause the warmest air in the setting up and out, to come back down along the sides of the room. It will definitely make the floor a lot warmer, and you will notice this.

They are designed in such a manner that their blades remain away from the floor as they possibly can be and give them more clearance. But because of this design the air circulation is impeded which is one of the major disadvantage of this kind of fans. Also they are not as efficient and effective as other fans are because the blades of hugger ceiling fans are very close to the ceiling. These hugger fans are mostly used where ceiling height is only 8 feet and this height further increases if your furniture height like bed and sofa is also more than regular basis.

J-hook and claw hook: With this type of mounting a metal hook secures to the ceiling, so that your fan will be directly attached to the material of the ceiling wall. Low ceiling adapter: A low ceiling adapter is a kit which accomplishes the same thing as a downrod. Usually made of brass or another metal, a low ceiling adapter kit attaches directly from the ceiling and omits the need for lowering the fan at all as it automatically hangs a little farther down with the adapter.
