Lasko Ceiling Fan Switch - Do you know what? The title of this article is merely out-and-out misleading. The sole actual "disadvantage" as it pertains to a ceiling fan is what it will take to get one properly installed. Ceiling fans might be difficult to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. In some cases, where the ceiling fan would be to be installed you will need to run an electric line to the place. Unless you are skillful at doing this type of thing, hiring an authorized, bonded and competent electrician will more than likely save you a lot of grief in the long term.
There is also the minor "con" that involves the problem of periodic care. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan will give you many, many years of agreeable cooling and cost-savings on your own heating bill (assuming you have a fan that allows one to reverse the blade direction).
On occasion, ceiling fans need small alterations and get out of balance. The most often encountered 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 and also a blade or blades that weigh slightly more in relation to the others. Be certain that every one of 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 was solved, in the event the wobbling has ceased.
Otherwise, make use of a yardstick or another straight part of wood and put it (together with the fan quit) vertically at the outer edge of one of the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to be certain that every blade touches the stick. If one or more do not, only (and gradually) bend the blade(s) so that their pitch matches the others and repeat the procedure until you are satisfied that each blade has the same pitch.
