Bear Moose Ceiling Fan - Guess what? The name of this informative article is just out and out misleading. The only actual "con" when it comes to a ceiling fan is what it will take to get one properly installed. Ceiling fans could be difficult to install for the inexperienced do it yourselfer. Sometimes, where the ceiling fan will be installed, you will need to run an electrical line to the location. Unless you are skillful at doing this sort of thing, hiring a capable, bonded and licensed electrician will more than likely save you much grief in the long run.
There is also the minor "minus" that entails the problem of periodic care. Properly installed, a ceiling fan provides many, many years of agreeable cooling and cost-savings on your own heat bill (assuming you've got a fan which allows you to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you should wipe the blades down once in a while but everyone has household cleaning chores to take care of from time to time.
On occasion, ceiling fans require slight alterations and get out of equilibrium. The most typical offenders are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor casing, blades which are not at the same angle (pitch) as the remaining blades as well as a blade or blades that weigh somewhat more compared to the others. Be sure that every one of the screws are tight, without going into great detail. If they're not tightening the ones that run the fan and have come loose. Your issue has been solved if the wobbling has ceased.
Otherwise, make use of a yardstick or another straight bit of wood and place it (together with the fan stopped) vertically in the outer edge of among the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to ensure that each blade touches the stick.
