Before you begin with the installation, there are certain items you should take into consideration. The style and size of the fan you will choose is very significant and in order to get the most suitable fan for your room, you will need to know the size of the room and the kind of ceiling you have.

Turn off the main switch: The most important thing you first need to do is turn off the power when it comes to installing or removing the electrical fixtures. It is very necessary to follow the instructions effectively. Don’t just switch off the lights that control the light. You will need to turn off the breaker, which controls the light in the room where you wish to install the fan. Remove the old light fixture: You should start this process in the middle of the day as you will need to open your blinds and window shades to let enough light in the room.

As far as the type of fixture you will be removing, first dissemble your old fixture and remove it from the light box. Disconnect the wires: You then need to make sure you disconnect the wires from old assembly. However, do ensure marking each wire as to its exact location. It will help you installing it again at ease. Inspection of the old electrical box: Check if the currently installed electrical box is able to handle the weight of the fan and is mounted to either a cross brace or a truss. It will ensure the proper foundation for your new fan. If for whatever reason, your electrical box isn’t mounted properly, then you better get the right mounting brace and electrical box. While installing a ceiling fan, weight is an important factor to consider, therefore choose wisely.


Before you began with the installation of a ceiling fan, first read the instruction provided with the fan thoroughly in order to know the details about the fan. Make sure to have all the necessary items nearby so you won’t have to move from your place while installing.

1. Install mounting bracket:

The initial thing to do is to install new mounting bracket onto the electrical box. This bracket will actually be holding the new fan.

2. Employ working hook:

The ceiling fan motor is extremely heavy and the manufacturers are well aware that you cannot hold the fan from one hand and do all the wirings with the other. That’s why they have made this thing called working hook that permits you to hand the fan motor through the hook while you are securing the wires.

You may also find a red wire that is normally used for looping depending on the number of light switches control a single light. Normally when you see this wire, you have multiple light switches in one configuration. Just make sure to follow the wiring exactly as you removed from the old fixture and you won’t have any difficulty.

4. Secure fan motor

6. Check your job:

Once you are finished installing the ceiling fan, it is necessary to turn back and take a detail look on your work. Make sure that the light switch is turned off. Take a short break and return to the room and switch on the light and see if the fan and light are working well.
