How to install a ceiling fan? Hi! I’m Felix with Michael & Son Electric. Today, I’m going to show you how to install a ceiling fan. So we will cover everything from preparing the working area, mounting the bracket, assemble the fan, the downrod installation, hook up and hanging the fan, blades and light kit installation. The tools we need to install a ceiling fan are the following: safety goggles, electrical testers. This is more of a professional grade tester. This is more consumers passive. Either of them, you can find them in local hardware stores. Level, pliers, wire cutter, adjustable wrench, screwdrivers; different kinds, mainly of Phillips, slotted; tape measure, wire nuts, electrical tape and your ceiling fan and a downrod. In this case, the ceiling fan is going to be installed in a high ceiling. That's why we require a downrod. The size of the downrod depends on the height of the ceiling. In this case, we are going to use 6 footer downrod. We are going to use a pre-wire location. Some new homes already come with an outlet ready for the ceiling fan. So we are not going to do the ceiling fan box because it’s already there. In those cases where we do not have any pre-wire outlet in the ceiling, it’s a complete different job. In some cases, in some counties, those kinds of work, where you install new devices and new electrical equipment, you’re required to have a permit from the city or the County. Some safety issues; keep in mind, you’re working with electricity and you will install a piece of equipment that if it falls, could make a big damage or even worst, hurt somebody seriously. First, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a licensed electrician. I have more than 10 years experience. In just in the DC area, Washington DC metropolitan area, I performed more than 2,000 jobs already. So we’ve got a lot of work to do. So, let's get started.
