A fixture can circulate air within an enclosed room or around an outdoor patio or deck, adding comfort to backyard barbecues and other gatherings.
Ceiling Fan Installation in Santa Ana & Orange County
Whether your room is wired for a fan or does not yet have the proper wiring, our electricians in Santa Ana can install any type or style of ceiling fan. You don’t even need all the wiring connections in place for us to perform a complete installation.
Call our electrician even if you have the proper connection. Our ceiling fan installation contractor can address any safety issues without incident and ensure the process goes smoothly. You’ll be able to use your ceiling fan as soon as we’re done. If you don’t have a connection or a fixture installed, we can provide a ceiling fan mounting box with the wiring, bracing, and electrical components needed to complete the job.
Installing a ceiling fan box requires skill and expertise. Our electricians will run all the electrical wiring to power the fan and ensure it works properly. You can therefore avoid contact with hazardous electrical parts that can cause shocks, burns, and other injuries if mishandled.
Indoor vs Outdoor Ceiling Fans
Indoor ceiling fans can hold up inside your home and provide an ideal cooling solution, but they are not designed for exposure to outside elements. Outdoor fans are either damp-rated or wet rated. Damp-rated fans can tolerate humidity and are ideal for enclosed spaces such as a patio or garage, or extremely humid indoor spaces such as garages or bathrooms.
Wet-rated fans, on the other hand, can withstand direct exposure to rain, snow, and wind. They are suited for areas that are only partially covered. The casing is completely sealed, so internal components and wiring are always protected, avoiding electrical shorts even if the fan is operated while it’s raining. You can even use a garden hose to rinse off the fan.
Ceiling Fan Styles
Outdoor fans come with various decorative choices, including tropical designs with blades that look like palm fronds or tropical plants. Most homes with indoor ceiling fans have standard units that point downward and have five blades and a built-in light fixture. Other types include hanging propeller, low-profile, directional, and rotational fans. You can also order a ceiling fan with a remote for added convenience. However, the basic styles you typically find include:
Fans that blend contemporary and traditional styles can be installed in just about any type of room, and suit any style or design.
How to Troubleshoot Your Ceiling Fan
First, check the switch, circuit breaker, or fuse if your ceiling fan stops working. That’s about the limit of what you can do safely on your own. Otherwise, troubleshooting the problem requires a technician who can use a voltage tester to determine the source of a problem. Replacing wires, motors, or capacitors is something to leave to the experts as well. Call us if there are issues with blade-turning, the fan wobbles, or its motor starts to hum.
