Many homes have ceiling or paddle fans installed already. These fixtures wear out with time, not to mention just plain wind up out of date and looking old.
Some older fan installations will need to have the box and supports reinforced to provide proper support, whereas some will not. Only trained ceiling fan installers can properly evaluate the supports and ensure your safety.
We recommend the addition of remotes to control your fans. Most ceiling fan remotes provide 3-speed control and full dimming, and work with old or new fans.
New installs basically fit into two different categories. Prewired boxes, typically in new homes, and either a light replacement or completely new install. For proper fan installation, it is critical that it has a sturdy support system. Prewired homes already have adequate supports.
Today there is a huge variety of ceiling fans available. Which in turn, results in many different installation methods being employed.
