With the heat of summer upon us, it’s more important than ever that the fans in your home are working properly. But did you know that your ceiling fans require regular maintenance like the other appliances in your home? It can be easy to take these fans for granted, but there are several home improvement tips you can use to help determine when your ceiling fans might need repair or replacement. Here are three signs that it’s time to replace the ceiling fans in your home.
Does your ceiling fan ever wobble as it spins, even just on the highest setting? This can be an indicator that your fan is off-balance and will require some attention. Over time, a wobbling ceiling fan will become further off-balance and eventually become a falling hazard. To avoid the fan causing harm to you or a loved one, you can secure the fan by evenly and firmly screwing it back into its bracket housing or replacing the fan altogether. Sometimes, an old and worn-out fan will require the upgrade.
While all fans will make some sort of sound, a properly functioning ceiling fan should turn on and circulate air without making too much noise. Loud humming noises or clanging can be a sign that something is wrong and your fan may be nearing the end of its useful life. Sometimes, this can indicate an electrical issue with the fan’s wiring. An electrician should take a look at the wiring to make sure your electrical system is functioning safely and effectively.
Failure to Turn On
If your ceiling fans are failing to turn on, it can mean that your fan has reached the end of its useful life and will require replacement. It’s a good idea to troubleshoot the issue by checking the fuse to make sure you don’t have a larger electrical issue on your hands, as these can quickly become safety hazards in your home. If the issue isn’t with the wiring, it’s a good idea to upgrade your ceiling fan now before the dog days of summer really go into effect!
