Turn Of The Century Ceiling Fan Karlyn - Do you know what? The name of the article is just out and out misleading. The sole real "con" when it comes to a ceiling fan is what it takes to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans might be difficult to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. In some instances, you will need to run an electric line to the area where the ceiling fan will be to be installed. Unless you are skillful at doing this kind of thing, hiring a competent, bonded and licensed electrician will more than likely save you a lot of grief in the long run.
There's also the minor "disadvantage" that entails the issue of regular maintenance. Properly installed, a ceiling fan will provide years and years of nice cooling and cost-savings in your heat bill (assuming you've got a fan that enables one to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you have to wipe the blades down in a while but everyone has household cleaning chores to take good care of of from time to time.
On occasion, ceiling fans require small alterations and get out of equilibrium. Be certain that all the screws are tight without going into great detail. When they aren't tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. When the wobbling has quit, your problem continues to be solved.
If not, make use of a yardstick or other straight piece of wood and place it (together with the fan quit) vertically in the outer edge of one of the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to ensure that the stick touches. If one or more don't, simply (and gently) bend the blade(s) so that their pitch matches the others and repeat the procedure until you are satisfied that each blade has the same pitch. Turn the fan on again and see if you have solved the issue.
