Outdoor Ceiling Fans For High Ceilings - You know what? The name of this informative article is merely out and out misleading. The only actual "minus" in regards to a ceiling fan is what it will take to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans might be difficult to install for the inexperienced do it yourselfer. Sometimes, you'll need to run an electric line to the region where the ceiling fan is to be installed. Unless you are skillful at doing this type of thing, hiring a capable, bonded and licensed electrician will more than likely save you much grief in the future.
There is also the minor "disadvantage" that entails the issue of periodic maintenance. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan will give you many, many years of agreeable cooling and cost-savings in your heating bill (assuming you have a fan which allows one to reverse the blade direction).
On occasion, ceiling fans require small alterations and get out of equilibrium. The most frequent offenders are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor housing, blades that are not at the same angle (pitch) as the remaining blades and also a blade or blades that weigh slightly more than the others. Make certain that all 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 problem was solved if the wobbling has ceased.
Otherwise, make use of a yardstick or other straight part of wood and put it (together with the fan stopped) vertically at the outer edge of one of the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to be certain that the stick touches. If one or more do not, only (and gently) 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 have solved the issue.
