San Diego’s Ceiling Fan Installation & Replacement Experts
We can set up ceiling fans even if there is no existing fan or pre-wiring to be found. Safe, clean installations are our priority. This will require a special fan-rated electrical box and a series of supports capable of accommodating the weight of the fan and the vibrations the fan will create as it rotates and spins the fan blades.
This job usually only takes a couple of hours. We’ll even throw in a remote that can change the fan speed and dim the lights.
Once our expert electricians install the ceiling fan we’ll of course clean the entire work area. Sometimes we leave it much cleaner than it was when we arrived. We take professionalism very seriously!
Why You Don’t Want to Try DIY Ceiling Fan Installation
Any time you touch the electrical wiring in your home you create the potential for trouble. Just have a look at this couple’s experience, described in a post in the DIY Chatroom:
We turned it on and the light and fan both worked. 10 minutes later, my hubby turned it on again. The light made a pop noise and blew the breaker for the whole upstairs. We flipped the breaker and again, the same!
This homeowner thought she understood exactly where each wire was supposed to go. She thought ceiling fan installation was a quick, easy DIY project. Instead, she created a short circuit. She wasted time, wasted money, and produced a hazardous situation which she will now have to pay someone else to repair. What if she’d simply called an electrician to get the job done right the first time?
She’d have been enjoying her new ceiling fan a lot faster, and with a lot less stress.
Many times our customers tell us they’re afraid to call a professional electrician because they feel their ceiling fan installation and repair will be too expensive. But if you’ll give us a chance to give you one of our free estimates we think you’ll be pretty pleased with what we have to share with you.
Why Would You Need to Replace a Ceiling Fan?
We’ve seen all sorts of issues as we’ve visited homeowners all over San Diego. Wiring issues are relatively common. Sometimes wires start to loosen as poorly installed ceiling fans wobble and buck. This can result in blown breakers, sparking wires, fans which get stuck on a single speed, or fans which simply do not work at all.
Dirty, poorly installed ceiling fans can easily overheat. In fact, overheating ceiling fans account for about 6% of all residential electrical fires in the United States. Hiring a professional electrician to repair, replace, or maintain your ceiling fans is a smart way to protect your home and family.
Finally, some ceiling fans can simply become an annoyance. Nobody wants to listen to a fan which buzzes and hums. Nobody wants to live with a fan that sounds like it’s going to rip half of your ceiling off before crashing into your floor, either. Fortunately, Premo Electric can solve all of these problems quickly and efficiently.
How Ceiling Fans Help You Save Money
A well-installed ceiling fan allows you to spend much less energy on cooling your home. In general, you can raise your thermostat by 4 degrees without feeling any less comfortable if you use your ceiling fans correctly. They’re an important part of your San Diego “beat the heat” strategy! Make sure your fan is set to rotate the air upward (we can help you get your ceiling fan rotation configured correctly, too).
Just don’t leave the ceiling fan running when you’re not in the room. It’s not necessary, since the fan cools you off instead of cooling the room off. You don’t want to wipe out all those energy savings by burning electricity on a fan that isn’t helping anyone.
Finally, you need to make sure you have the right fan at the right weight and height. Many homeowners make the mistake of simply buying a fan whose aesthetics they prefer without considering the fan’s utility when it comes to keeping their homes cool. We love a pretty fan, but we’re also happy to make some recommendations which will ensure your new ceiling fans keep you cool and comfortable, too.
