Old Antique Ceiling Fans - You know what? The title of the article is merely out-and-out misleading. The only real "minus" as it pertains to some ceiling fan is what it takes to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans might be difficult to install for the inexperienced do it yourselfer. Sometimes, you will need to run an electric line to the place where the ceiling fan would be to be set up. Unless you are skillful at doing this type of thing, hiring a qualified, bonded and licensed electrician will more than likely save you much grief in the long run.
There is also the minor "disadvantage" that entails the issue of regular care. Properly installed, a ceiling fan provides many, many years of pleasant cooling and cost-savings on your heating bill (assuming there is a fan that enables one to reverse the blade direction).
On occasion, ceiling fans require small adjustments and get out of balance. Be certain that every one of the screws are tight without going into great detail. When they're not tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. Your problem has been solved, in the event the wobbling has stopped.
If not, utilize a yardstick or another straight bit of wood and put it (with the fan quit) 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 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.
