We haven’t beat the heat quite yet! So how are your ceiling fans holding up? With the wear and tear of everyday use, your fans may not be working as well as they used to. Knowing when to repair or replace your fans as they get old is essential to being an educated homeowner.
When to Get a Repair
Occasionally, your ceiling fan might need some maintenance. For example, if your fan isn’t turning on, there could be a problem with the wiring or the circuit breaker. Make sure always to hire an expert when dealing with any electrical issues. Malfunctioning speed settings, flickering lights, and broken pull cords are all common fixes.
When to Replace Your Fan
Sometimes, you may need to replace your ceiling fan completely. As an easy rule, every 10 years, you should get a new fan to keep them from getting worn out. If your ceiling fan is wobbling or making strange new noises, it’s time to call a professional to install a new one.
If you’re looking for a way to eliminate ceiling fans, consider getting a whole-house fan. These products can make a home cooler and less humid while also reducing your energy bills. In addition, by installing a whole-house fan, you can take down individual ceiling fans without losing any of the benefits that they provided.
