Matthews Diane Ceiling Fan - Do you know what? The name of this informative article is just out and out misleading. The only real "disadvantage" in regards to your ceiling fan is what it takes to get one properly installed. Ceiling fans can be hard to install for the inexperienced do it yourselfer. Sometimes, you will need to run an electric line to the area where the ceiling fan is to be set up. Unless you're skillful at achieving this sort of thing, hiring a competent, bonded and licensed electrician will most likely save you much grief in the long run.
There's also the minor "con" that entails the issue of periodic care. Properly installed, a ceiling fan will give you years and years of nice cooling and cost-savings on your own heating bill (assuming there is a fan which allows one to reverse the blade direction).
On occasion, ceiling fans get out of equilibrium and require slight adjustments. The most often encountered offenders are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor casing, blades that are not at precisely the same angle (pitch) as the remaining blades as well as a blade or blades that weigh somewhat more compared to the others. Without going into great detail, ensure that every one of the screws are tight. Whenever they're not tightening the ones that run the fan and have come loose. When the wobbling has stopped, your problem has been solved.
Otherwise, use a yardstick or another straight bit of wood and place it (with the fan quit) vertically at the outer edge of among the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to be certain that the stick is touched by each blade. Turn the fan on again and see in the event you have solved the problem.
