Why you need to install a ceiling fan? There are two reasons for that - cooling and heating. If you have some mechanical aptitude these are quite easy to install. Once you have got a fan, assemble it as per the instructions. If this thing seems a bit complex ask fro help from your friend. It is best to make sure it is assembled correctly. Once you have the pre assembly completed you can move to the ceiling junction box installation. Make sure the power to box is turned off. Once that is done you need to find three wires for installation - A copper or green wire for bonding, a white for neutral and a red or black wire for power. If there is a fourth wire, that is for wall controls and non remote operations.
Now coming to the weight of ceiling fan, it generally weighs around 12 pounds or more. For more weight support, you would need another junction box. You can discuss this thing with someone who knows about the ceiling fans like your nearby store. Generally, most fans are lighter can be installed in general junction boxes without modifications.
Many fans have a hanger shaped like a U. Install this onto your box with a screw of type 8/32. Once the hanger is installed, pick up your fan without blades and hang it onto the hanger. This allows hooking up wires without struggling with the blades. Connect the wires as per the instructions. Now swing the fan to test its installation. Some fans have brackets while others have metal plates or preformed mounting bases. Following the instruction manual you can have the fan installed in no time. While installation of different fans vary, but fitting the motor first and putting on blades later is always found easy. No doubt, it requires you to work over your head, but it is somewhat easy to former method.
Once you have got the fan hanging, blades installed and everything tightened, you can step off the ladder, take a deep breath and install wall controller. No matter if they vary in designs, but their installation process is somewhat similar. Here you will have line side and load side going to your fan. The line side is a set of wires that feed into the switch box from the panel while the load side is going to your fan. This is really very critical, so you make sure you understand the difference. Connect the load side first, that is the bonding wire is to be connected first. Then connect then neutral wire and after that the hot wire. Then do the line side. Now you have the power cable there. If you have the fourth wire, cap it off and use it for motor control as instructed. Red to Red is usually the case here.
So installing a ceiling fan is so easy and simple. Just you need to know the basics and follow the instructions mentioned in the manual.
