Modern Ceiling Fans With Lights - Do you know what? The name of this informative article is merely out and out misleading. The sole real "disadvantage" in regards to your ceiling fan is what it takes to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans might be hard to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. Sometimes, where the ceiling fan will be to be set up, you'll need to run an electric line to the location. Hiring a capable, bonded and licensed electrician will probably save you much grief in the long run unless you are adept at doing this kind of thing.
There is also the minor "con" that involves the issue of regular maintenance. Properly installed, a ceiling fan will provide many, many years of pleasant cooling and cost-savings on your heating bill (assuming you've got a fan which allows one to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you need to wipe down the blades once in a while but everyone has household cleaning chores to take good care of of from time to time.
On occasion, ceiling fans require minor adjustments and get out of equilibrium. The most frequent offenders are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor casing, blades that are not at the same angle (pitch) as the rest of the blades and a blade or blades that weigh slightly more compared to the others. Make sure that all the screws are tight without going into great detail. If they're not tightening the ones that run the fan and have come loose. When the wobbling has stopped, your issue was solved.
If not, use a yardstick or another straight piece 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 make sure that the stick touches. If one or more don't, 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. Turn the fan on again and see if you've solved the issue.
