The Dangers of DIY Ceiling Fan Installation

Almost all ceiling fan installations require some work on your home’s electrical system. In NSW, it’s illegal to do DIY electrical work. Legalities aside, it’s a difficult and dangerous process to install a ceiling fan yourself:

  • Wiring the Fan & Switches – You’ll need to properly wire your ceiling fan to the existing junction box, or install a new one if necessary. You may also need to install a new switch, or may want to change the position of the switch in the room which will require some rewiring. Without expertise you risk using the wrong gauge or not properly connecting your wires, leading to a risk of short circuits and electrical fires.
  • Mounting Brackets or Braces – If your fan did not come with mounting equipment, you’ll need to select brackets or braces appropriate for the weight and speed of the fan. These will be mounted to the wall using suitable screws. Using inappropriate equipment may not lead to obvious problems immediately, but means your fan is not securely fastened and is at risk of falling, especially with continued use. A falling ceiling fan can cause serious injury as well as damage to your ceiling and property underneath.
  • Balancing – After installation you’ll need to ensure your fan’s blades are correctly balanced through visual inspections and operational tests. It’s difficult to do this step accurately without experience and the right equipment, and fans installed DIY are often left slightly off balance. An unbalanced fan will wobble, straining the fan’s motor and making unwanted noise. Over time this damages the motor’s bearings and bushings, decreasing the lifespan of the fan.

Each of these steps requires professional knowledge and experience, and should only be done by a licensed professional. Don’t give yourself a headache trying to figure out the different parts, and don’t risk an accident for your family now or in the future. Get GlobileNet’s team of licensed electricians to give you a hand with the installation, and enjoy the peace of mind knowing it’s securely installed.

Different Ceiling Fan Types - Budget vs Value

When it comes to choosing a ceiling fan, the options are almost endless. It’s often a matter of finding the sweet spot between present cost and long-term value, as well as considering the aesthetics of your home. Here’s some options to consider:

  • Standard AC Ceiling Fan – The most up-front affordable option, a standard AC ceiling fan is a good option for any room.
  • DC Ceiling Fan – If your budget allows, a DC fan is a more energy-efficient option, saving money on your electricity bill in the long run. They also operate silently or very quietly, reducing sleep disruption.
  • Blade Count – Four blades is the most common option, but there are three and five blade models available. In general, the more blades will consume more energy, but also run quieter.

You may consider additional features such as:

  • Winter Mode – By reversing the blades direction, this mode pushes warm air downwards and helps you heat your home more effectively.
  • 2-in-1 Fan and Light – Combining a ceiling fan with an ambient light is a popular choice. Most options allow you to turn on the fan, light or both. Choosing an energy efficient lighting option will save you money in the long run.
  • Low Profile Ceiling Fans – Perfect for low ceilings, this design feature allows the room to maintain a feeling of openness and space.
  • Outdoor Ceiling Fans – Made with materials suitable for outdoor environments like ABS plastic or stainless steel blades, these fans create a cool area for entertaining and relaxing.

GlobileNet has installed all sorts of ceiling fans in all sorts of homes. We’re keen on increasing energy efficiency, but we also have an eye for design and understand the importance of maintaining your home’s aesthetic. Call us today for a free onsite consultation and tailored advice to help you make a balanced choice.

Getting a Good Night’s Rest - Air Cooling & Circulation

Your bedroom’s temperature has a significant impact on your sleep quality. Both too hot and too cold conditions can disrupt your sleep pattern, leading to tiredness, headaches, difficulty concentrating and overall a lower quality of life.

Cooler temperatures signal to our bodies that it’s time for bed as the body’s core temperature naturally decreases as we fall asleep. Ceiling fans are particularly effective at cooling spaces, regulating temperatures and maintaining air circulation. The gentle breeze makes our bodies perceive a cooler temperature, making us more comfortable even at higher temperatures.

Ceiling fans are quieter than ever before, meaning you don’t have to worry about the sound disrupting your sleep. DC motors, especially brushless versions, are significantly quieter than AC models. They also tend to be more compact, lighter and energy efficient. If you’re a light sleeper, you should also look for precision-balanced or aerodynamic blade designs, anti-vibration mounting systems, and other noise-dampening technologies.

Correct installation is crucial to ensure your fan is as quiet as possible. Without secure mounting and proper blade balancing, even the most expensive fan will give you trouble with noise. That’s why it’s essential to have an experienced professional install your ceiling fan. Don’t suffer sleepless nights in the heat or the rattle of a poorly installed fan, call GlobileNet and have our team of licensed electricians install your ceiling fan quickly and securely.

Modern and Smart Home Ceiling Fan Models

Just like any other appliance, ceiling fans can be integrated with your Smart Home system. Think ease of control, effortless comfort and smart usage with these possibilities:

  • Ease of Control – Activate your ceiling fan with your voice, then adjust the speed and direction, maybe even set a timer. Or tap on your phone to activate the ceiling fan, not just in your current location but in other rooms in your house. For example, you can turn on your bedroom fan 10 minutes before heading to sleep.
  • Effortless Comfort – The next level of Smart Home systems: automations. Let your thermostat talk to your ceiling fan, and have it turn on automatically at a certain temperature. Too hot? Maybe time for a bit of aircon, but only until the room cools down and the ceiling fan is sufficient to keep the room feeling cool – energy saving made easy.
  • Smart Energy Usage – Smart fans can keep track of their energy consumption and show you patterns in your usage, helping you make informed decisions and save on your energy bills.

If you’ve got a Smart Home system installed or are thinking about it, you want to make the most of its functionality. It can take a long time to properly install and set up your appliances and devices in the first instance. GlobileNet has helped families all across Sydney Hills District set up or optimise their Smart Home systems with new appliances, including ceiling fans. We won’t just install your ceiling fan, we’ll help you work out the controls and set up any desired automations. Give us a call today and you’ll be enjoying a cool and breezy home at the touch of a button (or voice command, or automation) in no time.

  • I want to keep my energy bill low. Can you recommend energy-efficient ceiling fans?

  • Do you also do aircon installations?
    We don't do aircon work, however, can put you in touch with one of our trusted airconditioner repair and installation partners.
  • I’m very sensitive to noise when I sleep, but also can't fall asleep when it's too hot. What ceiling fan would you recommend?
    Many modern fans are incredibly quiet due to features such as DC motors and sleek blades.

    We can help you select a ceiling fan that’s affordable and suitable for your bedroom’s size and design, but most importantly, keeps you cool at night without affecting your quality of sleep.
  • What precautions do you take to prevent damage to the ceiling during an installation?
    We take a number of key precautions during our installations to look after your ceiling.

    Firstly, we always carefully locate and double-check ceiling joists before any drilling.
    Secondly, we take care to select appropriate and durable materials, including the support braces, mounting brackets, screws and fasteners. This ensures your fan will remain securely attached and not pull away from the ceiling or leave damage over time.
    Lastly, we always secure the canopy, balance and test the fan thoroughly to ensure it operates smoothly, again to avoid stress or damage to your ceiling over time.

    As your local electrician, we treat you like a neighbour and your home like our own. Trust us to provide the best service possible.
  • How do you ensure secure attachment of the fan to the ceiling? What tests do you perform after installation?
    Like any secure attachment, it starts from the beginning. Before any drilling, we carefully locate ceiling joists that we’ll use to anchor the mounting bracket, and support brace (if needed).

    We take care to select appropriate and durable hardware including the mounting bracket and support brace, as well as screws and fasteners. Finally, we always secure the canopy, aligning it with the mounting bracket, and carefully balance the blades.

    After installation, we perform a number of tests:
    • Visual inspection - looking for any misalignment
    • Manual rotation test - with the fan off, we rotate the blades and check for balance
    • Operational test - starting at the lowest speed, we gradually increase until the maximum setting, observing the fan for any wobbling, excessive noise, or vibrations
    • Post-operation check - we inspect for any change or loosening during operation
