Frequently Asked Ceiling Fan Questions

You may have heard about the benefits of having a fan. To count a few, they reduce the energy use and save money and energy by circulating air. They utilize the heated air in the winter as well as work as a lighting tool for any type of space. They can be used both indoors and outdoors for the comfort of your family and your guests for your gatherings. Additionally, they come in many styles to match the rest of your house and can work as a decoration tool.

In this article, we will go over some questions about ceiling fans many people have. We will cover both questions related to choosing the best fan for your house as well as any other problem-related questions you may be having if you already have ceiling fans.

First Question: How To Choose A Ceiling Fan?

  • Choose the place in your house for the ceiling fan.
  • Choose the size of the fan you want for that room
  • Choose the type of ceiling fan. Some of the choices you have include standard, low-profile ceiling fans, dual-motor ceiling fans, and outdoor ceiling fans.
  • Decide whether you want lights or not.
  • Choose the efficiency you need for the fan.
  • Decide on a budget.

Second Question: How Can You Save More Energy Using A Ceiling Fan?

If your ceiling fans have lights, you can prefer the LED light bulbs that have ENERGY STAR certification because they consume less energy compared to the traditional ones. Ceiling fans also have ENERGY STAR certifications so if you want a new fan that will save energy, look for one with that certification. Finally, when purchasing a new ceiling fan, make sure that you aren’t buying a fan that is way too big for the space. Otherwise, you will just waste energy and money.

Third Question: Why Does My Ceiling Fan Hum?

Most likely, it has something to do with the motor's vibration. However, it can also be related to faulty wiring, loose screws, or insufficient lubrication. Normally, it’s not something you should worry about, but the licensed electricians of Mr. Electric would be more than happy to see if everything is alright with your fan if it’s humming.

Fourth Question: Why Does My Ceiling Fan Shake While It's Running?

The unbalance of the fan, potential misalignment of the blades, and dust buildup can all be reasons for the shaking of the fan while it’s running.

Fifth Question: Why does the light on the ceiling fan not work?

If your fan is working and your light isn’t, this is most likely because of the wiring or the bulb. On the other hand, if your light is working and the fan isn’t, first check to see if the lights and outlets around are still receiving electricity. If you think there’s nothing wrong with the circuit, you should call Mr. Electric because you may need repair or ceiling fan replacement.
