Ceiling Fan Mount Box - Guess what? The name of the article is merely out-and-out misleading. The only actual "con" when it comes to a ceiling fan is what it takes to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans can be difficult to install for the inexperienced do it yourselfer. Sometimes, you'll need to run an electrical line to the location where the ceiling fan would be to be set up. Hiring a qualified, bonded and licensed electrician will more than likely save you much grief in the long run, unless you are skillful at doing this sort of thing.

There is also the minor "disadvantage" that entails the issue of regular maintenance. Properly installed, a ceiling fan will give you years and years of nice cooling and cost-savings in your heating bill (assuming you've got a fan that allows one to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you should wipe down the blades once in a while but then, everyone has household cleaning chores to take care of from time to time.

On occasion, ceiling fans require small alterations and get out of balance. The most frequent culprits are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor housing, blades which aren't at precisely the same angle (pitch) as the rest of the blades and also a blade or blades that weigh somewhat more than the others. Ensure that all the screws are tight without going into great detail. Whenever they truly aren't tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. Your issue continues to be solved when the wobbling has quit.

Otherwise, make use of a yardstick or other straight part 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 make sure that the stick is touched by every blade. Turn the fan on again and see in the event you've solved the issue.
