Ceiling Fan Installation Services

A ceiling fan installation is one of the easiest ways to keep your home or business comfortable. If you don’t already understand, ceiling fans come up to match every home interior in a variety of designs and shapes. During warmer periods, having a ceiling fan installation that’s correctly done helps to circulate heat and air movement that helps to keep your rooms more comfortable for the inhabitants.

For the safety of your home, professional light installation is very important. Make sure that this is performed by a professional and licensed electrician while installing lighting in your home. Nation Electric has electricians who know how to mount lighting precisely. Lighting helps make our houses cleaner and safer by deterring offenders from breaking into your residential or business premises.

Energy-saving Benefits of Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans help the air conditioners operate more efficiently than when using air conditioners alone, making your space warmer and better ventilated. Fans of the ceiling will help make your homes and businesses beautified because they come in many appealing shapes and sizes that suit your style of interior design.

Can I Install A Ceiling Fan By Myself?

Many people do not feel comfortable doing installations of ceiling fans on their own. It is because it requires electrical wiring with high voltage, as well as certain carpentry expertise to ensure that the ceiling fan is correctly installed and operates at heights that can be dangerous if done by an inexperienced person.

Usually, ceiling fan installations in Singapore often include the installation of a new electrical box on the roof. If this is not done properly, it may be dangerous and cause severe damage if it drops off due to the fan’s weight and continuous motion. We do not recommend you to install a ceiling fan yourself unless you are an EMA-certified electrician.

As you have enough electrical knowledge and experience, you can always try to install a ceiling fan on your own. Nevertheless, the nitty-gritty specifics needed for a ceiling fan installation function are known to a professional service provider, and this is why it is necessary to engage with their electrical services where possible.

We can mount any sort of ceiling fan you need, including the following for your home or office:

Standard Ceiling Fans

They usually come with 4-5 blades versatile in many different styles for any interior decoration. They can come in the form of a pull switch or remote control, and some light bulbs can be installed. They are normally installed with a downward rod on a flat or slanted ceiling. Deck fans should be suspended at least 7 feet high, while at least 9 feet high indoors should be suspended.

Low Profile Ceiling Fans

When the ceiling is less than 8 meters, these ceiling fans are used. They were mounted directly on the mounting bracket. Because their wind speed is not as efficient as regular ceiling fans, if you turn on the aircon, they can help distribute cold air across the hall.

Energy Saving Ceiling Fans

Generally, they are more powerful than regular ceiling fans, but in the long run, they can help save money as they use less energy for the same speed of rotation. These are aerodynamically designed to have less air resistance when spinning, saving more power and saving at least 20 per cent more energy than normal ceiling fans

Dual Motor Ceiling Fans

The main engine has two rods horizontally connected with each rod having interchangeable fan heads. Different fan speeds can be set and different direction oscillates for each fan. Typically they are used to cover wider surfaces.

Outdoor Ceiling Fans

The humidity of outdoor spaces does not impact outdoor ceiling fans. We have blades suitable for all forms of weather. Two types of outdoor ceiling fans are available; wet ceiling fans and damp ceiling fans.

Hot ceiling fans are able to withstand hot and humid weather, ideal for the climate in Singapore. The best way to cover porches, patios and sunrooms is to use them. Wet ceiling fan, on the other hand, is waterproof and can come into contact with air. Alternatively, they are planned to be placed outdoors.

Considerations when installing a ceiling fan

Do your homework before installing a ceiling fan in your home. This is particularly important because nowadays there are different types of fans on the market. We vary not only in brands, but also in designs, forms, and functions. Find a fan that will adapt as closely as possible to your needs and lifestyle.

Think about the outdoors

If you live in a landed property, consider getting an outdoor installation of a ceiling fan. If you have a greenhouse or patio, this is a smart and realistic option. Getting a ceiling fan installed in such places will make it more comfortable to sit and relax outdoors, particularly in the hot climate of Singapore. Because the cost of installing ceiling fans is typically more economical than air conditioners, you can choose as many ceiling fans as you like.

Height of room

For maximum effect and protection, the vertical location of a ceiling fan should be positioned at the right level depending on the height of your room. A down rod attach is used to change the suspended height of your home ceiling fan, below is a table of appropriate matches between down rod length and room height.

Location of your ceiling fan

As previously stated, your ceiling fan’s position requires different blade span sizes and different down rod lengths depending on your room size. Another factor deciding which fan to mount is the room’s humidity. For example, it would be best to install a ceiling fan rated for humid conditions in bathrooms or kitchens. Subsequently, it is advisable to get a ceiling fan approved for wet conditions to prevent water damage to your ceiling fans for outdoor areas such as a balcony where rain can splatter in.

Common ceiling fan problems

Have you ever heard your ceiling fan’s peculiar humming sound? Most people are experiencing a multitude of small problems with their fans and a conundrum with it: do you learn to live in the back of your head with this minor annoyance? Or are you going to fork more money to replace it? If your fan is old enough to buy a new one, it’s still possible to fix these crashes.

So before you jump the gun and decide to purchase a new ceiling fan for your home or call a professional to fix your fan’s repair, it’s important to know the common ceiling fans problems that can be fixed quickly.

Wobbly ceiling fan

A wobbly ceiling fan is a common problem faced by everybody. We always decide to leave the fan to be, but in our daily lives, it can be a nuisance. Here are some reasons why fans could wobble:

  • Ceiling fans are loosely fastened to the electrical box in the ceiling
  • Improper installation of the electrical ceiling box, causing it to be loose
  • Fan blades not properly secured in the brackets
  • Mounting bracket not properly fastened to the motor
  • Improper placement of the fan blades
  • Bent or imbalanced fan blades
  • Excessive dust accumulation on blades over time

Do not say that just because it wobbles, the ceiling fan is defective. The problem can be easily solved by turning off the fan, inspecting all tightly sealed screws and blades, and cleaning your fans to remove excess dirt. Contact a fan installation professional to ensure the installation is done by an expert.

Noisy ceiling fan

A little of the noise of a fan is not a problem and might not be worth checking on. But, if the noise persists, it may mean the fan has a faulty part. Below are some of the causes that make your ceiling fans noise:

  • ball bearing of the ceiling fan improperly lubricated
  • Foreign objects are caught up in the fan blades or the fan’s motor
  • Imbalanced fan blades
  • The fan blade is contacting the fan shroud or motor cover

It is suggested that you try to tighten all the parts within the ceiling fan and give both interior and exterior of the fan a thorough cleaning if you encounter these issues. If the noise is still noticeable, you should call an electrician as there could be problems with the internal circuitry of the fan.

Ceiling/Wall Fan Stuck on One Speed

It can be frustrating to have a fan stuck at one speed, especially when it spins at a low speed. Typically this is a consequence of the fan’s internal circuit such as:

  • A blown motor capacitor
  • The pull cord being broken off
  • Insufficient lubricant on the ball bearing

A motor condenser is responsible for the amount of energy that passes to the motor of the fan which is used to regulate the speed of the fan. Therefore, when a ceiling fan is stuck at a certain speed, a blown motor capacitor is the primary suspect. Very small amounts of electrical current can pass through the condenser when overloaded, causing the fan speed to slow. The pull cord may have fallen off for wall mounted fans, leaving the fan stuck at one point. Therefore, take steps to ensure that the ball bearing of your fan is well lubricated so that friction does not slow down the speed of rotation.

Ceiling fan Stopped Rotating

If your fan wants to simply stop working together, test if one of these issues happens to be:

  • The circuit breaker has tripped due to power overload
  • There is an open circuit due to losing connection
  • There are problems with the internal circuit of the fan’s motor

When your ceiling fan stops abruptly, the first thing to check is your panel box. Check if there was a power trip that set off the circuit breaker. Subsequently, check if the electrical supply has been cut off from the fan, or any loose wires which will cause an open circuit. If all else fails, the issue likely lies with internal defects, be it a faulty ball bearing or a damaged motor due to a power overload.

We recommend that you be a professional and avoid dealing alone with wires or your fans ‘ internal parts. This ensures that your problem is safely fixed and that a thorough check can be carried out to avoid further problems. However, many fans come with a purchase warranty. Hold this in mind when buying a fan as it will waste the fan because it can save on price later.
