Home Ceiling Fans Installation In Dallas
Ceiling fans are a very popular addition to install in bedrooms, patios, and living rooms. When you want to add a ceiling fan, the most difficult step tends to be getting it wired into your electrical system, especially if you do not have an existing fan or light fixture already in place. Installing a ceiling fan without existing wiring means you will need to run cables to connect it to a power source.
Ceiling fans do more than create a cooling breeze. A ceiling fan can save you heating dollars by pushing warm air away from the ceiling and back down into the room. A fan can cut your cooling costs too: Moving air feels cooler (think wind-chill factor) so you can raise your air conditioning temperature and still feel comfortable.
One of the things I regret not asking for when we were building our house was an outdoor ceiling fan. I remember seeing one in the model home, so I just assumed our house would come with one installed when it was done. Unfortunately, it was an option that I didn’t know about and I was really disappointed that our house didn’t have one when our neighbors did.
Needless to say, adding a ceiling fan to our covered patio has been on our minds for a long time. I chose the Carrington 60 in. Natural Iron Ceiling Fan for my back porch. I’m so happy we finally checked this task off our to-do list!
Here’s how we got it done:
- Phillips and flat head drill bits or
- Phillips and flat head screwdrivers
Step 1 – Turn power off
Before you begin anything, turn off the electrical power to your light/fan at your main electrical panel. After you’ve turned off the power, flip the wall switch that controls your light/fan to confirm that it is off. If the power isn’t off (sometimes breaker switches are labeled wrong), go back to your electrical panel and flip another switch until you’ve confirmed that the power is off.
Step 2 – Install ceiling fan bracket
After you’ve confirmed that your power is off, get on your ladder and use a screwdriver or drill with the appropriate drill bit to attach the ceiling bracket (provided with the ceiling fan) to the junction box.
Make sure that it’s attached snugly before moving onto the next step!
Step 3 – Assemble fan motor and down rod
Climb back down your ladder and start feeding the wires coming from the motor through the center of the new fixture’s canopy and rod.
Tighten everything with a screwdriver drill with the appropriate drill bit, using the screws provided. Read more…
