Cottage Style Ceiling Fans - Guess what? The name of the informative article is only out and out misleading. The only actual "disadvantage" when it comes to some ceiling fan is what it will take to get one properly installed. Ceiling fans may be difficult to install for the inexperienced do-it-yourselfer. In some instances, where the ceiling fan will be to be set up you'll need to run an electrical line to the place. Hiring a capable, bonded and licensed electrician will probably save you much grief in the long run unless you are adept at doing this sort of thing.
There's also the minor "minus" that entails the problem of periodic maintenance. Properly installed, a ceiling fan provides many, many years of agreeable cooling and cost-savings on your own heating bill (assuming you have a fan that allows you to reverse the blade direction). Granted, you should wipe the blades down in a while but then, everyone has household cleaning chores to take care of from time to time.
On occasion, ceiling fans require small adjustments and get out of equilibrium. The most common culprits are loose screws that attach the blades to the motor casing, blades which aren't at precisely the same angle (pitch) as the remaining blades and also a blade or blades that weigh somewhat more compared to the others. Without going into great detail, be certain that every one of the screws are tight. Whenever they aren't tightening the ones that have come loose and run the fan. Your problem was solved if the wobbling has ceased.
Otherwise, make use of a yardstick or another straight bit of wood and place it (with the fan quit) vertically in the outer edge of one of the blades. Rotate the blades by hand to be certain that the stick is touched by each blade.
