Licensed Electrician vs. DIY Ceiling Fan Installation in Pasadena, MD
Do-it-yourself ceiling fan installation has its risks. If your home is older or was not wired correctly by a past contractor or DIY homeowner, the installation of the new fan might not be as straightforward as you hoped. The wiring might be a little odd or need some adjustments to be safe. It’s also incredibly hard to install a ceiling fan solo if you don’t have any tricks for bearing the weight while you wire and hang the fixture. Just assembling the fixture might take a novice DIY homeowner up to 3 hours, while a licensed electrician can be in and out, with the mess cleaned up in a much shorter amount of time.
Choosing a New Ceiling Fan
We prefer our clients pick and purchase the fan for installation – this ensures you get what you like, you have a receipt for possible future returns, and the unit is on-site when we’re scheduled to come to install it. We do caution against online shopping for off/unknown brand fans. Many are made overseas and are not wired or constructed to the exacting specifications required by code in the United States. If you do shop online, purchase a reputable brand like Emerson, Casablanca, or Hunter. We actually recommend purchasing from a local store – this can make it easier to return your unit while it is still under warranty, should that be necessary.
Regardless of where you purchase your ceiling fan, ensure the box has not been opened and resealed. Many times fans are bought for one part, it’s removed from the box, and the unit is returned sans the part they needed. The store may then just tape the box up and resell it without checking that all the parts are included. If you do buy something that has been opened – compare all the parts against the included schematic to make sure everything is there before your electrician arrives. This can save the time, cost, and hassle of a wasted service call.
One last tip for picking out your new ceiling fan. All name-brand fans will come with a guide on the box that indicates what size room the fan is suitable for. Pay attention to these numbers. A fan that is smaller, installed in a large room, will not move air correctly. This could be frustrating in the long run. Make sure the fan you buy is suitable for the room where you’re having it installed.
