Ceiling Fan Squirrel Cage - Do you know what? The title of the article is just out-and-out misleading. The sole actual "minus" when it comes to some ceiling fan is what it will take to get one properly installed. Ceiling fans could be difficult to install for the inexperienced do it yourselfer. In some instances, where the ceiling fan will be set up you'll need to run an electric line to the region. Unless you are skillful at doing this type of thing, hiring a licensed, bonded and competent electrician will most likely save you much grief in the long run.
There's also the minor "con" that involves the issue of periodic care. Properly installed, a ceiling fan will provide many, many years of pleasant cooling and cost-savings in your heat bill (assuming you have a fan that allows you to reverse the blade direction). Allowed, 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 get out of equilibrium and require minor adjustments. Without going into great detail, make sure that all the screws are tight. Whenever they truly aren't tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. In the event the wobbling has stopped, your issue was solved.
Otherwise, utilize a yardstick or other straight bit of wood and put it (with the fan quit) vertically in the outer edge of among the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to make sure that the stick is touched by each blade.
