Support Brace For Ceiling Fan - You know what? The name of the informative article is only out and out misleading. The sole real "disadvantage" as it pertains to some ceiling fan is what it requires to get one properly installed. Ceiling fans could be hard to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. Sometimes, you'll need to run an electric line to the location where the ceiling fan will be installed. Hiring a capable, bonded and licensed electrician will most likely save you a lot of grief in the long term unless you are adept at achieving this sort of thing.
There's also the minor "disadvantage" that entails the issue of periodic maintenance. Properly installed, a ceiling fan will provide many, many years of enjoyable cooling and cost-savings in your heat bill (assuming you have a fan which allows you to reverse the blade direction).
On occasion, ceiling fans get out of equilibrium and need slight adjustments. Ensure that all the screws are tight, without going into great detail. Whenever they aren't tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. Your problem has been solved when the wobbling has stopped.
Otherwise, make use of a yardstick or other straight piece of wood and put it (together with the fan stopped) vertically at the outer edge of among the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to be certain that the stick touches. If one or more don't, just (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 in the event you've solved the problem.
