Exterior Ceiling Fan Light Kit - Guess what? The name of the informative article is only out and out misleading. The only real "disadvantage" in regards to a ceiling fan is what it will take to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans may be hard to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. Sometimes, where the ceiling fan is to be set up you will need to run an electrical line to the area. Unless you're adept at achieving this type of thing, hiring a licensed, bonded and qualified electrician will more than likely save you a lot of grief in the long run.
There is also the minor "con" that involves the problem of regular maintenance. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan will provide many, many years of enjoyable cooling and cost-savings on your heating bill (assuming you have a fan that allows one to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you need 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 need minor adjustments and get out of balance. The most often encountered offenders are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor casing, blades which aren't at exactly the same angle (pitch) as the rest of the blades and also a blade or blades that weigh somewhat more compared to the others. Without going into great detail, be sure that all of the screws are tight. When they aren't tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. If the wobbling has ceased, your issue has been solved.
Otherwise, utilize a yardstick or another straight part of wood and place it (together with the fan stopped) 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 do not, just (and gently) bend the blade(s) so that their pitch matches the others and repeat the procedure until you're satisfied that each blade has the same pitch.
