Next on Your DIY List: A Ceiling Fan Install in Anthem

As home improvement projects go, installing a ceiling fan is one that doesn’t require a ton of experience. If you’re handy around the house and somewhat familiar with wiring, chances are you’ll do just fine swapping out an old light fixture with a new, energy-efficient ceiling fan. Of course, you can always contact VIP Electric to help with ceiling fan wiring and installation if necessary. We’re licensed, bonded, and insured electrical contractors with 20+ years of experience.

In just about an hour, you could be enjoying the cool breeze of an energy-efficient ceiling fan. Here are the basics on how to install a ceiling fan:

  • Make certain power is turned off at main source.
  • Disconnect wires and remove light fixture.
  • Check that electrical box is marked for ceiling fan usage.
  • Follow manufacturer’s instructions for mounting fan.
  • Feed existing wires through middle hole in ceiling plate.
  • Hang fan on support hook if your model has one.
  • Connect wires for either one- or two-switch wiring.
  • Attach fan blades.
  • Install light kit, pendants, and pull-chains.
  • Turn power back on and test fan (and lights, if relevant).

Since ceiling fan wiring can vary from model to model, it’s important to read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully and take it one step at a time. Depending on what you find after you remove your existing fixture, you might need a trained electrician to run new wiring or update the electrical box. VIP Electric is happy to help you install ceiling fan units wherever you’d like to save energy and cut back on air conditioning usage.
