Hanging A Ceiling Fan On An Angle

Hanging A Ceiling Fan On An Angle - Guess what? The title of this article is just out and out misleading. The sole real "con" as it pertains to some 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 would be to be installed you will need to run an electric line to the place. Hiring a qualified, bonded and licensed electrician will most likely save you a lot of grief in the future, unless you're adept at achieving this kind of thing.

There's also the minor "disadvantage" that involves the issue of periodic maintenance. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan provides years and years of pleasant cooling and cost-savings on your heat bill (assuming you've got a fan which allows one to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you need 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 equilibrium and need slight alterations. Without going into great detail, make sure that all the screws are tight. If they're not tightening the ones that run the fan and have come loose. Your problem was solved, if the wobbling has ceased.

If not, make use of a yardstick or another straight part of wood and put 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 each blade. If one or more don't, just (and gradually) 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.
