When it comes to your home’s climate control, there are many things you can do to maximize performance and save money. Perhaps one of the biggest tricks is to make sure the heated or cooled air is circulated throughout rooms.

Multiple speed settings also allow you to customize how your fan works, further improving your energy economy.

You can tell if a ceiling fan capacitor is bad by listening and watching the fan. The capacitor gives your ceiling fan the initial burst of power to start rotating. If the capacitor is not working properly, the motor will still run but the fan will not rotate. If you hear a humming sound from your fan and it is not working properly, most likely it is the capacitor. If the fan is running too slowly it might also indicate a problem with the capacitor.
Edge Electric offers flat rate pricing for all electrical and ceiling fan services.
This price depends on a few factors:
- Was there a fan there before? If so, your cost will be less than if an electrician needs to run wiring, add a circuit or ceiling breaker.
- Is it easily accessible? If you want the fan on a 20 foot high ceiling, the price could go up as installation will probably take longer.
- What size and type? Depending on the size of the room and the type of fan you are choosing, the cost could go up. Larger motors are required for larger fans and will affect the price.

How long it will take to install a ceiling fan depends on a few things:

You can install a ceiling fan yourself, but you will need to get a permit. It is recommended that you have an electrician install your ceiling fan for you if:
- You lack knowledge about electrical code and wiring.
- You do not have the proper tools or equipment.
- You are not comfortable handling electrical wiring.
Installing a ceiling fan is much more complex than replacing one since it will require new wiring — or modification of existing wiring if you are installing it where a light fixture is. To find out more about getting your ceiling fan installed, contact us today.
You should hire a licensed electrician to install your ceiling fan for you.
