Need A Ceiling Fan Installed? Call A Qualified Electrician

Whether you plan on replacing an existing ceiling fan or require a brand new installation, either is a job you will need a licensed electrician to complete. Ceiling fan installation means working with electricity; it involves working with existing wiring and electrical cabling. Under Australian law, only a licensed electrical contractor with the required training and knowledge of electrical compliance is able to meet your ceiling fan replacement or installation request.

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors can assist with all your exhaust and ceiling fan installation needs. We can determine the most suitable installation site or mounting point, connect any existing and compliant wiring to the wall switch and even install additional wiring if needed to ensure a smooth installation process.

For a safe and compliant ceiling fan installation, always call Metropolitan Electrical Contractors.

FAQs – All you Need to Know about Fans

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors answer some questions about fans – ceiling and exhaust fans.

Exhaust fans are perfect for removing smoke in the kitchen, steam in the bathroom, plus the hot and humid air both environments can create. Removing this air allows fresh new air to enter the room instead. The warm air that is removed is sucked through a ducting system and sent outside where it can dissipate.

Ceiling exhaust fans are especially important as they remove excess moisture which would otherwise lead to mould and bacteria growth.

Fans that move two cubic metres of air per second are sufficient for ventilation purposes. But if you need a heavy-duty fan you may need to purchase something bigger.

It’s best practice to clean your exhaust fan at least once every six months. Regular cleaning ensures it remains in good working order and can most effectively ventilate the room.

Before you clean your fan, turn it off at the circuit breaker. Firstly, remove the vent cover, clean it with soapy water and leave it to air dry. Next, vacuum off the dust on the exhaust fan – keep a light touch so you don’t break anything!

Your fan will probably still be dirty after vacuuming. Use a damp cloth to clean off any remaining grime. You could even take apart the fan to get into all the components. Finally, with everything clean, reassemble the fan and turn it back on!

A ceiling fan can use anywhere between 4.5W to 45W of electricity, dependent on fan speed and other factors. With this in mind, the cost to run a fan is approximately $0.13 to $1.29 per hour. Again, the cost can depend on a variety of factors such as your electricity provider, and the plan you’re on.

There are several reasons why your fan might be making an uncharacteristically loud noise. The type of sound your fan is making can determine the problem.

The most common noise is a humming sound, often caused by dimmer controls. Dimmer controls weren’t intended to be used to control fan speeds, so the imperfect design can make a humming noise.

A bad receiver could also be the cause for humming. If you have a remote control for your fan, then the connection between that and the fan could cause the awful sound. Replace with proper fan speed controls or a new receiver immediately.

If it’s a rattling sound you’re hearing then it’s most likely due to loose screws. Loose screws that connect ceiling fan blades to the motor can cause serious damage to your home, possibly even injury, if not sufficiently tightened.

When a fan is mounted directly onto the ceiling joist, (beams that provide support to your home), the above noises may be amplified. Your directly mounted fan should include hangers to help to avoid the loud noise.

For any sort of loud noise your fan is making while it’s in motion, it’s important to contact a qualified electrician to find the source of the problem.
