Top Ceiling Fan Installation related questions

Yes, the fan must be installed by a professionally skilled ceiling fan installers who knows how to wire a ceiling fan safely. As well as putting you at risk of electrocution, installing a ceiling fan yourself will invalidate your warranty.

Ceiling fans are a traditional and effective way of cooling rooms. The fan spins in a clockwise direction to draw warm air upwards and improve circulation in the room, which can lower temperatures by up to 5°C. Reversible ceiling fans can also be set to spin anti-clockwise to push warm air down and make rooms feel warmer in the winter.

Ceiling fans are an energy-efficient cooling option that use approximately the same energy as a 60-watt light bulb. You could save up to 40% on your electricity bill by combining air conditioning with a ceiling fan, as you can lower the thermostat while maintaining the same level of comfort.

The size and type of fan you need depends on the size of the space you need to cool or heat. A larger fan can circulate more air per minute. A fan with a cathedral canopy will have less wobble and noise than a fan with a bell canopy.

It normally takes around 1 hour to install a ceiling fan where there is an existing connection, but it can take longer if a new connection needs to be made or if the ceiling is difficult to access. If you're worried about ceiling fan installation cost, you should check whether your contractor charges by the hour or offers a flat rate.

The cost of the installation depends on how long it takes and how much work is involved. Installing a new fan costs more than replacing an existing fan, and it can cost more in an older property where more wiring may be needed. The average ceiling fan installation cost on Airtasker is between $125 – $265.

What do fan installers do?

Even if you know how to install ceiling fan wiring, the installation must be done by a licensed electrician to avoid the danger of electrocution. If you're having more than one fan installed on the same day, each additional ceiling fan installation will usually cost less than the first.

Your electrician may also be able to help you install other types of fans around your home, such as an exhaust fan or outdoor fan, or other electrical fittings such as lighting.

Ceiling fan replacement

If you're replacing an older ceiling fan or your room already has a ceiling outlet, the electrician can complete a like-for-like ceiling fan installation. This usually takes less than an hour and involves removing the existing fan, assembling and installing the new fan and connecting the wiring. You should also your installer whether they will dispose of the old fan or if you need to do this yourself.

New connection

If you don't already have a ceiling fan and there is not a suitable connection in the ceiling, this will need to be set up before your ceiling fan can be installed. This takes longer and costs more than replacing an existing fan. The electrician will need to run wires through the walls and ceiling and to install wall switches.

Fan with lighting

The same ceiling outlet can power a light fitting and a fan if you want to save space in a smaller room or avoid clutter. Ceiling fan and light packages can be purchased together, or they may be installed separately by a qualified electrician.

Ceiling fan repair

If your ceiling fan isn't working properly or is making noises and you can't fix it yourself, hiring an electrician for ceiling fan repair will cost less than buying and installing a new fan – unless the fault can't be repaired and you need a replacement.
