Ceiling fans are both functional and decorative particularly useful in the summer, since they can reduce energy usage while creating a cool breeze. They can also be used in the winter to gently pull heated air away from the ceiling where hot air tends to collect.
For this project you will need a ceiling fan kit, metal electric ceiling box, wire strippers, wire connectors, electrical tape, circuit tape, screw driver, drill with driver and bits, pliers and ladder.

Choosing what fan you will be using is essential when purchasing a fan. For a room that is 12′ a 36″ or less fan works best. For a room 12′-15′ you can install a 42″-48″ fan and for any rooms 15′ or bigger you can use a 52″ fan.

To begin, turn off power in main breaker box. Once electricity is off remove the fixture from the ceiling. Secure the fan bracket to the ceiling. Assemble the fan. Pull the wires through the trim and insert the rod to the housing. Secure the down rod to the housing with the pins and screws. Connect the fan with screws to the mounting bracket in the ceiling. Attach the wires together and tuck them into the ceiling box. Seat and Secure the canopy. With the motor secure, attach the fan blades and the lighting fixture. Turn the power back on and enjoy the breeze.
