Ceiling Fan Installation

During hot summer days, ceiling fans are excellent to keep the room temperatures cool. If a ceiling fan is not installed properly, it can become a dangerous hazard. We will handle everything, so you can sit back and enjoy your ceiling fan’s fresh air.

4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Licensed Electrician Install a Ceiling Fan

A ceiling fan is a good investment in your home. It improves airflow for greater comfort and combats moisture that promotes mold and deterioration of paint, fixtures, and your personal possessions. A great ceiling fan also complements your home’s style. It can be tempting to try installing a ceiling fan yourself. However, here are four reasons why you should reconsider that idea and have a licensed electrician perform your ceiling fan installation:

  1. Professionals know how to prevent ceiling damage. A ceiling fan often requires cutting a larger hole in the ceiling or cutting a new hole. Cutting holes in the ceiling in DIY projects sometimes causes damage that is expensive to repair. Licensed electricians are professionals in this area of home improvement and will manage to enlarge or cut new holes without unexpected damage.
  2. Wiring fixtures without experience can be dangerous. One of the most dangerous areas of DIY home improvement is in working with electrical wiring. Installing a ceiling fan or a lighting fixture or appliance that necessitates rewiring or connecting to existing residential wiring requires experience, to ensure immediate and long-term safety. A professional electrician is thoroughly trained in safe wiring practices, recognizes safety issues, and performs every action safely.
  3. Licensed electricians are ceiling box experts. Very often, homeowners attempting to install a ceiling fan are unaware that different types of fan configurations require different kinds of ceiling electrical boxes. Installing the wrong electrical box can cause the fan not to be as securely installed as it needs to be for safety and long-term operability. A licensed electrician has all necessary parts and installation materials and supplies readily on hand, to ensure that your new fan functions safely and through all the years of its life expectancy.
  4. Professional electrical work adds value to your home. DIY electrical work does not inspire the same level of confidence in home buyers that having electrical projects, like a ceiling or attic fan installation, or a whole house fan installation completed by professionals does. In fact, knowing a home has been modified with DIY electrical projects can worry many buyers. Especially if you’re planning multiple electrical installations inside and outside your home, noting that the work was all professionally done is a positive point with prospective buyers.

For the greatest practical benefit and enjoyment from your new ceiling fan and for the long-term safety of your home and its occupants, always call a licensed electrician for equipment installations.

Exhaust Fan Installation, and Replacement in New Jersey

An exhaust fan is one of the important accessories that every home should have. The exhaust fans pull the excess moisture and unwanted smells of a particular room. Exhaust fans can often be found in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, attic, garage, and basement.

Why Do You Need Exhaust Fans?

The main function of the exhaust fans is to pull out any excess moisture or smells from different rooms in the house. This means that they provide ventilation in your house to prevent chemical fumes from building up, and also remove any contaminants that can be dangerous to breathe in. Exhaust fans cool down areas that get hot in your house. The exhaust fans vent the hot air outdoors, thereby reducing the temperature of your house even when you are not using the air conditioner. Exhaust fans are responsible for removing the excess moisture that could damage your home. When hot water cools down and condenses on walls, or any other surfaces, mold can grow. The exhaust fans prevent the growth of mold in your home by ensuring that all the excess moisture in your house has been removed.

Exhaust Fans for Attic

The attic is another place where you should ensure that you have exhaust fans. The exhaust fans help ensure the attic remains moisture-free. When the attic has excess moisture, the moisture can damage the roof. When you have the exhaust fans, the life of the roof will be extended. The exhaust fans also provide ventilation in the attic and the house at large, contributing to reduced power costs.

Exhaust Fans for Bathrooms

An exhaust fan is one of the must-have things in your bathroom. Although homes require some levels of moisture, the bathroom is very susceptible to excess moisture. To create a better environment in the bathroom, an exhaust fan should be installed. They prevent the growth of mold and mildew that damage the surfaces of the bathroom, towels, and curtains. This is because when you have an exhaust fan, it eliminates any moisture in the bathroom providing an unconducive environment for the growth of mildew and mold. Finally, exhaust fans in the bathroom eliminate unpleasant odors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ceiling Fans

Installing a ceiling fan is less difficult if the space above the ceiling is readily accessible through the attic. There are reasonably straightforward approaches to ceiling fan installation, even if there is no attic above it. However, this kind of fan installation requires making new wiring connections and adding an electrical switch, which requires professional expertise. You should contact a licensed electrician who provides ceiling fan installation service to ensure your ceiling fan’s proper connections and safe operation.
Before you buy a ceiling fan:
  1. Measure the length and width of your room, and use those measurements to calculate the square feet of the space.
  2. Then measure the height of the room.
  3. Then check the area dimensions of the fan you want. Make sure that the diameter of the fan is appropriate for the square footage of the room.
  4. Next, check the fan’s downrod length and compare it to the room’s height measurement to ensure that the fan will not hang too low from the ceiling. Allow a minimum of 10 to 12 inches clearance between the ceiling and the fan blades for sufficient airflow.
To avoid accidentally voiding your warranty coverage due to faulty installation, have your new ceiling fan installation performed by a licensed electrician.
The primary difference between outdoor and indoor ceiling fans is the kinds of materials used to manufacture them. Indoor ceiling fans are not built to withstand the moisture and winds to which a fan is exposed during outdoor use. Outdoor fans are constructed from more durable materials that can last over time through winds and other weather. Outdoor fans also need more robust fan motors for cooling open outdoor living spaces.
To ensure proper connections and safe operation, have your new ceiling fan installation completed by a licensed electrician.
If your ceiling fan is making a rattling noise, the cause may be a loose screw in the fan blade assembly. Check all the fan blades at the attachments to the fan motor housing, and tighten any that are loose. All the screws should be tight — but avoid over-tightening.
Another potential cause of noise from a ceiling fan is a loose wire connector inside the switch housing. If you suspect that this is the problem, you should not attempt to repair it yourself. You may need to replace the fan or have it repaired by a qualified professional.
If there is noise or any other problem with your ceiling fan that cannot be corrected without opening the cover on the motor, or the switch, or other mechanical or electrical parts of a ceiling fan, check your warranty. If the fan is no longer covered under warranty, then you are advised to replace the fan or take it to a licensed professional.
Through the summer months, set your ceiling fan blades to rotate counterclockwise. This causes the blades to push air downward, which generates a cool breeze below the fan. Alternatively, during the winter months, set the fan blades to spin clockwise. Run the fan at a low speed during cold months to help it draw cool air upward to the ceiling, push the warm air aloft outward toward the walls, and back down to help warm the living space below.
Ceiling fans usually use around 10 to 80 watts. Many use about 20 to 50 watts. Larger ceiling fan models that are not necessarily designed for energy efficiency may use 75 watts or even more. In any of these cases, using a fan consumes much less electricity than running an air conditioner. This is because fans do not refrigerate the air. A fan works by causing a “wind-chill effect” on the skin, making you feel cooler.
So, using a ceiling fan is a great way to stay cool and comfortable in your home while saving energy costs. You might even find that you can avoid running your air conditioner through a large percentage of the hot weather period of the year.

Attic Fans

The basic operation of an attic fan is pushing stale hot air out of the attic by pulling outside air into the space. This process of forcing air circulation in and out of the space is an efficient way to vent the attic and replace hot stagnant inside air with fresh outdoor air to cool the attic.
Installing an attic fan facilitates the exchange of inside and outside air serves to assist a home’s HVAC system in cooling the living spaces below the attic. It enables the whole-house cooling system to be more effective while reducing strain on the equipment.
An attic fan is designed to serve as an advanced ventilation system for the attic space. The fan is installed in the attic ceiling, to circulate air through the area at the very top of the house, where the air is hottest and most stagnant. It moves hot air out of the attic while drawing in air from outside the house.
The exchange of indoor and outdoor air prevents stagnant hot air from remaining suspended between your roof and your living space in the rooms below. This air circulation system helps your HVAC work less and deliver better results in heating and cooling the home.
If you have an HVAC system, an attic fan circulates the hottest air in your home, helping the HVAC system perform better while using less electricity and while preserving the life of the equipment. So, any home with an HVAC system should have an assistive attic fan to support it.
If you do not have an HVAC system, attic fan installation can be even more important. The attic fan drives out the hottest air at the highest area of the house and draws in fresh air. This process is essential for maintaining an exchange of indoor and outdoor air. This air exchange helps protect the attic, roof, and ceilings from exposure to a more extreme build-up of heat and humidity.
Because the process involves electrical connections, you should work with a licensed electrician who performs ceiling fan installation service to put in an attic fan. The attic fan installation process may be a little faster if your attic has an existing gable vent and you plan to replace it with an attic fan. The raw opening may need to be enlarged a little to fit the automatic shutter for the new attic fan. But, if the vent is large enough, it may already be compatible with the attic fan and you might not even need to replace it with a new vent. From this point, the rest of the installation requires no alterations to the structure.
Yes. In many homes, the upstairs rooms are never as cool as the downstairs living spaces. This is often partly due to sweltering heat in the attic emanating down into second-story rooms below. With appropriate air-sealing insulation in the attic and throughout the home, installing an attic fan will help prevent heat from stagnating above the living spaces. This aids the HVAC system in keeping the upstairs rooms cooler and more comfortable.
Pushing out the extremely hot air covering the top of your rooms can help make the entire home cooler in hot weather. Plus, the attic fan helps keep attic insulation dry throughout the winter, which also helps reduce the strain on the HVAC, saving it from continuously overworking during the summer.
An attic fan reduces the burden on your home’s HVAC system. Using an attic fan saves your HVAC system from struggling against the extreme heat that stagnates in the attic. That enables your HVAC system to cool with greater energy efficiency. This means that the cooling equipment does not have to work as hard but cools better than it did when it was working harder without the attic fan! It also means that with the attic fan supplementing the cooling system for your home, you can reduce your cost for air conditioning while maintaining a more comfortable indoor temperature throughout your home.

Jeff was the third electrician to look at two electric problems in my home.The first two could not find the problem. But Jeff was enthusiastic and took the time to identify and repair the problems. Not only did he do a terrific job but he is an extremely pleasant and professional technician. He explained exactly what was broken, what was needed to fix it and performed the services for a fair price. I will not hesitate to call DK Electrical Solutions for other electrical repairs and recommend them highly to anyone seeking these services.

Jeff from DK Electrical Solutions did a great job providing the services that we requested. Jeff did such a great job that we found more work for him to come back to perform. Jeff and Dillion returned a second time to install decorative light switches for our living room lights and ceiling fan. They found that the previous owners did not install the ceiling fan to code. They corrected the issue, which could have become a major problem. We will definitely use DK Electrical Solutions and Jeff for any future electrical work we might need, and will not hesitate to recommend them to our family and friends.

I have used almost every handyman and electrical contractor in Cherry Hill for the past 20 years and they were all OK, one or two maybe a little drunk, but I finally found DK Electrical Solutions. What a difference, for the same amount of money. Which is great, I like to get my money's worth, no more, no less. Brendan and Dylan were excellent in completing the job in a timely and professional manner. I am very pleased that they installed the correct size fan in my attic, and explained to me how they developed their experienced, expert opinion, after the 5 or 6 fans that were not installed or sized properly over the years. I will be calling DK up this week as soon as my 4 new ceiling fans arrive, to install for me. What a relief, Thanks Brendan, Dylan and DK Electrical Solutions. Scott Saline

My wife & I couldn't be happier with the results of our kitchen lighting project. The team took great care to involve us in the details of the placement of the fixtures ahead of time to make sure we were going to be happy with the finished results.
