Dyson Ceiling Fan Attachment - Guess what? The name of this informative article is simply out and out misleading. The sole actual "con" when it comes to some ceiling fan is what it requires to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans might be difficult to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. In some instances, where the ceiling fan will be installed you will need to run an electric line to the location. Unless you are skillful at doing this sort of thing, hiring a qualified, bonded and licensed electrician will most likely save you much grief in the future.
There's also the minor "con" that involves the issue of regular maintenance. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan will give you many, many years of nice cooling and cost-savings on your own heating bill (assuming you've got a fan that allows you to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you have to wipe the blades down 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 require minor alterations. The most common culprits are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor casing, blades which are not at exactly the same angle (pitch) as the remaining blades and a blade or blades that weigh slightly more compared to the others. Without going into great detail, make certain that all of the screws are tight. When they're not tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. If the wobbling has ceased, your problem has been solved.
If not, make use of a yardstick or other straight bit of wood and place it (with the fan stopped) vertically in the outer edge of one of the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to be certain that each blade touches the stick. Turn the fan on again and see if you've solved the difficulty.
