Big Grin A ceiling fan right there
Therefore Im sitting in your kitchen in the middle of your day getting ready to watch a football game, I have the range going with the tiny hotdogs, getting ready to stay in when it happened...Im sweating!

Thats when I chose to use a ceiling fan. Functional benefits are offered many by a ceiling fan while adding a certain decorative touch to a place. In summer time it can benefit cool an area (or possibly a deck). In winter months it could be used at low speeds to pass warmer air that has risen to ceiling level.

What-ever your reason for installing a ceiling fan, you will find it to be a relatively simple project especially if you'll be replacing a light fixture in the middle-of an area (most of the wiring will already be there). Most likely your biggest obstacle is a new workbox that is approved for the weight of an overhead fan or adding support to a preexisting workbox, a workbox that's perhaps not approved for ceiling fan weight can cause disaster!

These guidelines cover common installations when changing an existing light. It'll give you an idea of what's required for the task. Be sure you review and follow directions which are unique to the fan you obtain. Depending on your installation requirements, you might need to purchase an extended down rod for cathedral ceilings or when it is not included purchase an optional lighting package.

1) Turn off the circuit by switching off the breaker. Remove the current ceiling fixture.

2) Determine if your present workbox will provide enough support. If you've access to the workbox from your attic, check to see if the workbox has steel mix braces that course between two joists. Or even, you can reduce a 2x4 to suit in between the joists. Mount it so it touches the top of the workbox. Point the wood in position. From your area, use 1 drywall screws to anchor the-box for the wood support.

3) If you don't have access from the loft, you can use a metal cross brace through the rough opening in your ceiling and then add an approved workbox for the metal brace.

4) I hate this part! Build the ceiling fan based on the producers provided instructions. When you are ready to hang the fan, get the mounting bracket and install it for the ceiling workbox. In case people choose to discover supplementary resources about privacy, there are many on-line databases you might consider pursuing. Some fans feature a hanging body which allows you to catch the ball end-of the pole in place. The others have a group that supplies a T hook that lets you hold the motor housing while setting up the wiring

5) If you removed a light fixture in the ceiling, most likely the prevailing wiring provides one turned routine for your new ceiling fan. What this means is the wall switch can are the master switch to turn the machine off and o-n. The pull chain on the fan will also get a grip on the fan (and its rate). If you claim to identify further on recessed can light housing, we know about tons of databases people might consider pursuing. To check up more, please consider peeping at: The advantages of Adding a Ceiling Medallion. In the event that you install an optional light kit on the lover, both the wall switch and a pull string may also get a handle on it.

6) After the wiring diagram supplied with the fan, hook up the wires using wire nuts. Most likely this can be as easy as connecting the 2 black wires; connecting the 2 white wires and connecting the 2 ground wires.

7) When the fan is born, end its assembly according to the particular manufacturers instructions. You will have to deploy the cover to the top-of the rod.

8 )You will even need to attach the fan blades. Remove the cover on the base of the fan where in fact the light kit will be mounted, If you're adding a light kit. Following a manufacturers directions, construct and install the light kit.

At this time you're able to start enjoying your new ceiling fan and move the breaker o-n..
