Boat Oar Ceiling Fan - You know what? The name of the article is simply out and out misleading. The sole real "disadvantage" as it pertains to your ceiling fan is what it will take to get one properly installed. Ceiling fans can be hard to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. Sometimes, where the ceiling fan will be set up you will need to run an electrical line to the region. Hiring a competent, bonded and licensed electrician will probably save you much grief in the future, unless you are skillful at doing this kind of thing.
There is also the minor "disadvantage" that entails the issue of periodic care. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan will provide years and years of pleasant cooling and cost-savings in your heating bill (assuming you have a fan that enables one to reverse the blade direction). Allowed, 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 small alterations. The most typical offenders are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor casing, blades that aren't at the same angle (pitch) as the rest of the blades as well as a blade or blades that weigh slightly more in relation to the others. Without going into great detail, make sure that every one of the screws are tight. If they're not tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. Your issue was solved, when the wobbling has stopped.
If not, use a yardstick or another straight bit of wood and place it (with the fan stopped) vertically at the outer edge of one of the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to make sure that every blade touches the stick. If one or more don't, merely (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 in the event you have solved the difficulty.
