Ceiling Fan Garage Journal - Do you know what? The title of this informative article is merely out and out misleading. The sole real "disadvantage" in regards to your ceiling fan is what it takes to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans may be hard to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. Sometimes, you'll need to run an electric line to the location where the ceiling fan is to be set up. Unless you are skillful at doing this kind of thing, hiring a competent, bonded and licensed electrician will more than likely save you much grief in the long run.
There's also the minor "minus" that involves the problem of periodic care. Properly installed, a ceiling fan will give you years and years of nice cooling and cost-savings in your heat bill (assuming you have a fan that allows one to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you should wipe the blades down once in a while but then, everyone has household cleaning chores to take care of from time to time.
On occasion, ceiling fans get out of balance and need slight alterations. The most typical culprits are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor housing, blades which are not at precisely the same angle (pitch) as the rest of the blades and a blade or blades that weigh slightly more in relation to the others. Without going into great detail, ensure that every one of the screws are tight. If they're not tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. Your problem was solved when the wobbling has quit.
If not, utilize a yardstick or another straight bit of wood and place it (together with the fan stopped) vertically at the outer edge of among the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to make sure that every blade touches the stick.
