Modern Ceiling Fan Ideas - Guess what? The name of this informative article is just out and out misleading. The only real "disadvantage" when it comes to your ceiling fan is what it will take to get one correctly installed. Ceiling fans may be difficult to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. In some instances, where the ceiling fan will be set up, you will need to run an electric line to the place. Unless you are adept at achieving this type of thing, hiring a capable, bonded and licensed electrician will probably save you much grief in the long term.
There is also the minor "disadvantage" that entails the issue of regular maintenance. Correctly installed, a ceiling fan will give you many, many years of nice cooling and cost-savings in your heat bill (assuming you've got a fan that enables one to reverse the blade direction).
On occasion, ceiling fans get out of balance and require small adjustments. The most common culprits are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor housing, blades that aren't at exactly the same angle (pitch) as the remaining blades as well as a blade or blades that weigh somewhat more in relation to the others. Without going into great detail, make certain that every one of the screws are tight. When they truly aren't tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. Your problem has been solved, in the event the wobbling has ceased.
If not, make use of a yardstick or another straight piece 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 make sure that every blade touches the stick.
