A ceiling fan can make your house more comfortable, energy-efficient, and aesthetically pleasing. It comes in various designs that can suit the look and feel of your space and has various temperatures on the thermostat that can easily be adjusted. Because of its benefits, it can be a wonderful addition to your home.

When you decide to upgrade your old fan with a ceiling fan, you may be tempted to do the job all by yourself. However, an online video tutorial isn’t comprehensive enough to help you learn everything you have to know to ensure a safe and effective installation. 

It’s best to let experts handle the task. Here are some reasons why you should hire an electrician for your ceiling fan installation project:

– It Is Safer

Any type of electrical home repair or installation requires training, knowledge, and experience. When you attempt a ceiling installation without the right experience, you are at risk of faulty wiring, electrical shock, and other electrical dangers that can cause accidents and injuries. 

In addition, a poor installation job can leave you with a wobbly fan that threatens to come loose and fall every time you turn it on. This can pose a threat to the safety of your friends and loved ones in the long run.

You can easily prevent these problems when you hire experienced emergency electricians like us. We are highly trained, skilled, and licensed, so you can have peace of mind knowing we take safety measures seriously. You are assured that your ceiling fan will be installed properly and safely. 

First, we will inspect your ceiling fan if it is appropriate for your ceiling, then assemble it if required and install it later on. We will then test if the ceiling fan is in excellent working condition before we leave your home.

– It Saves You Money and Time

A DIY ceiling fan installation is a much bigger and more complex project than you may realize. If you are unfamiliar with the entire process, you may have to go on multiple return trips to the store to pick up the missing parts or return incorrect components. It could take you several days from figuring out how to install it properly to finishing the entire installation!

While a good portion of your money will go towards labour costs when you hire licensed electricians for your installation project, you get your money’s worth and you will save a lot of time and money in the long run. Most professional installations are done within only a day, and many take only a few hours to complete.

– It Protects Your Home

A new ceiling fan installation requires cutting a perfectly sized hole in the ceiling that can hold the ceiling box securely. Attempting to do the installation on your own runs the risk of creating too large of a hole that can result in unsafe operation or costly repairs. Therefore, it’s advisable to hire electricians instead. They have the right expertise to cut the hole with accuracy.


A DIY ceiling fan installation can seem like a good idea when you want to save you money, but it can prove to cost even more over time. Remember, the safety of your family is more important than saving a few dollars on labour, so it’s best to hire licensed electricians like us to work on your ceiling fan installation project.
