Majestic Everglade Ceiling Fan - Guess what? The name of this article is simply out and out misleading. The sole real "disadvantage" in regards to some ceiling fan is what it requires to get one properly installed. Ceiling fans can be difficult to install for the inexperienced do it yourselfer. In some cases, you will need to run an electric line to the place where the ceiling fan would be to be installed. Unless you're adept at achieving this kind of thing, hiring an authorized, bonded and competent electrician will more than likely save you much grief in the long term.
There is also the minor "con" that entails the issue of regular maintenance. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan will provide many, many years of nice cooling and cost-savings in your heating bill (assuming you've got a fan that allows you to reverse the blade direction).
On occasion, ceiling fans get out of equilibrium and require minor adjustments. The most often encountered offenders are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor housing, blades which are not at the same angle (pitch) as the remaining blades as well as a blade or blades that weigh slightly more than the others. Be certain that every one of the screws are tight without going into great detail. If they aren't tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. In the event the wobbling has ceased, your problem has been solved.
If not, use a yardstick or another straight part 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 ensure that every blade touches the stick. Turn the fan on again and see in the event you have solved the problem.
