The weather in Singapore speaks for itself. It’s humid all year round with some rainy and haze season. There is nothing much we can do to control the weather outside, but we can make a difference for ourselves better in our homes.
A popular option to cool down are air-conditioners, but that’s expensive. Instead, nothing beats the practicality and affordability of a ceiling fan. Modern-day fans offer a great range of function and design, and with that, here are ceiling fans worth your time if you are looking into purchasing one for your home.
How to install a ceiling fan:
Assembling a ceiling fan is not rocket science as long as you follow the instructions carefully. Before you start, make sure to:
Shut off the circuit breaker box
Choose an outlet that can/is strong enough to support ceiling fans
Make sure the location of the new ceiling fan is not cracked or damaged
Read the fan's manual for any other additional safety instructions (crucial!)
Have a clear amount of workspace with no obstacles
We'd advise to assemble the motor first, mount it onto the ceiling, then only mount up the assembled blades. After that, carefully install the light fixtures, followed by the pulling rod (if any).
Your fan should come with full manual instructions to install it. Generally, most fans should be installed like this:
Turn off the power, and uninstall the fixture (assuming there was a light or existing fan, and you're replacing it with the new fan).
Remove the electrical box carefully to prevent damages to the ceiling.
If the electrical box seems stuck, use a stick (or similar) to gently yet firmly tap the box to loosen it.
Install your fan's brace. Make sure the brace can support the weight of the new ceiling fan.
Proceed to install the fan's motor together with the fan's canopy (which should be assembled).
Attached the assembled fans.
Install the lights.
Test the fan,
And you're done! Be sure that you read full instructions for installing your new ceiling fan. If everything else is too complicated, it's best to contact a professional electrician.
