Ceiling fan installations are essential for keeping Sydney residents cool whenever temperatures rise. Whether adding fans indoors or outdoors or needing a ceiling fan repair, sometimes you’re tempted to do the work yourself. However, if you’re replacing a ceiling fan and it’s improperly installed, it can pose a danger to your family.

This is one reason why regulations do not allow homeowners (or business owners) to install their ceiling fans. Alternatively, you can contact a qualified, licensed, insured electrician who professionally supplies and installs fans. And besides being the legal choice, it’s a lot less hassle than if you tried to do it yourself.

Why choose The Local Electrician for your ceiling fan repair and installation?

So, let our ceiling fan installation and repair team do the job for you!

New and replacement ceiling fan installations

You should always consult an electrician about installing any type of ceiling fan. This includes replacement fans and new fans that require fresh mounting hardware and wiring.

Many homeowners think replacing a ceiling fan is a simple task, but it can still be very complicated. Among the other services they provide, our qualified electricians will ensure that the wiring to your fan is still in good condition. They will also make sure the ceiling itself properly supports the new fan.

Sometimes you don’t even need to replace your ceiling fan — some repair work may be required instead. Here are the signs that you may need an electrician:

  • Your fan’s light keeps flickering.
  • The fan shakes and rattles.
  • You hear strange noises when the fan is turned on.
  • The light dimmers on your fan stop working.
  • You can’t change how fast your fan spins anymore.

How long does the ceiling fan installation process take?

No matter what kind of project you’re tackling, it shouldn’t take long to have a new ceiling fan installed in your home. Installing a new fan takes an average of 2-3 hours for an electrician to complete the job. This includes running new wiring, checking ceiling mounts, and installing new switches in the wall to allow operation.

When it comes to ceiling fan maintenance, the time to replace or repair a ceiling fan is much less. In most cases, a complete replacement project can take an hour, assuming an electrician can use the same electrical box and wiring. The time needed to repair or salvage existing fans will depend on the problem with the unit and the extent of the repair work.

Several factors can slow down the installation process. One is if the ceiling is too high or the fan is hard to reach. Another consideration is whether you have enough access to the ceiling from the attic or floors above to run the new wiring.

How to choose an electrician for a fan upgrade project

With so many electricians in Sydney claiming that they can take care of any electrical needs you may have, how do you choose the best provider? There are some clear criteria for quickly narrowing down the different competitors in the market.

Always ask how long the company has been in business in your area. You don’t want to hire someone new to the field that may not have as much experience as other electricians you’re considering. You also wouldn’t want to work with someone who isn’t based near you because it will take longer for them to get in touch if something goes wrong or you need their help later.

Experience aside, you can also check their reputation and social proof. Check online sites like Facebook and Google to see what people are saying about the company and their experiences with the company. You can also look for customer testimonials on their website or ask for customer reviews and recommendations directly.
