Ceiling Fan 安装

When adding or replacing a ceiling fan, there are many factors to consider — including your existing infrastructure, lighting, airflow, installation environment and controls.

Ceiling Fan 安装 Requirements

  • 电路, Most properties already have the required circuits in place, so it is typically not necessary to install a new circuit into the 配电板. The use of existing power allows for a fast and easy ceiling fan installation.
  • 电压 – Most ceiling fans require a standard 120-volt circuit, which is already present in most homes for the lighting.
  • Junction Box (“J box”) – A junction box is required to both house the wires and support the weight of the fan. When you’re replacing an existing ceiling fan, this box should already be in place. When you’re adding a new ceiling fan where one didn’t exist before, a junction box will need to be installed. 在这两种情况下, it’s important to confirm that the box is rated for the weight of the ceiling fan that’s being installed.

A licensed electrician can make sure you have the circuitry, voltage and junction box needed for a safe and reliable ceiling fan installation.


If there isn’t other or adequate lighting in the area, you may consider a ceiling fan with lights. For maximum efficiency, look for an LED option.

When choosing a location for your ceiling fan installation, it’s also important to take any other ceiling-mounted lighting (such as recess cans) into consideration. You’ll want to be sure that your fan blades will not cross those lights, as this will create a strobing effect.


Because we are also an air conditioning service 提供者, we are knowledgeable not only about the 电 requirements of ceiling fans, but also about the purpose they serve: airflow.

If performance is a primary concern, look for a fan that lists its CFM (cubic feet per minute) rating. This will tell you how much air the fan will move. Higher CFM means more airflow. However, in some cases, it can also mean more energy usage. If efficiency is a goal, look for a fan that can operate at a high CFM while using relatively low power.

室内与. Outdoor Ceiling 球迷

If the fan is going to be used on the outside of the property, be sure to select an outdoor-rated ceiling fan to help prevent the fan from failing prematurely and the blades from drooping due to moisture.

How much does ceiling fan installation cost?

The cost will vary based on your installation requirements and preferences. For a basic installation (of a ceiling fan under 52” on a ceiling that is under 12’ where there is an adequately rated junction box in place), the cost is typically in the $175 range.

“Did some research, read the reviews, and contacted Efficient AC, Electric & 管道 to install a ceiling fan. Getting an approximate estimate, scheduling the appointment, and confirming the technician’s arrival was smooth. They installed the fan in an hour and the cost was slightly less than the estimate. I would highly recommend this company without reservation.”
