Ideas for Rustic Ceiling Fans with Lights

May 4th

Rustic ceiling fans with lights can help reduce your electricity bills for cooling in summer, move warm air around your house during the winter, and light a room. It is easier to replace an existing lamp with your new fan and the combination of light, since you will not have to run any new electrical wiring to it. Installation is simplified if you have access to the attic above where your new fan is going to be installed, but access is not necessary.

Installing rustic ceiling fans with lights, turn off the switch that supplies power to the lamp to be replaced. Check the connections on the device with a voltmeter to ensure the power is off. Remove the existing light device with a screwdriver and remove it. For added safety, install the cable nuts on the stripped wires until you are ready to fix the new fan cables.

Install the support bracket and the electrical box for the new fan and the combination of the light, with a screwdriver and the supplied screws. The support bracket may require an adjustable wrench to tighten the clamp between the studs. Rustic ceiling fans with lights have heavy motors. The electrical boxes used for ceiling lighting devices are not strong enough to support a ceiling fan. You may have to cut some drywall from the extra roof to allow heavy duty support and electrical box. Trace the outline of the new electrical box with a pencil, and cut the new opening with a plaster or jigsaw.
