3. Can I install a ceiling fan if I have a sloped ceiling?
Yes, but you will need to consult with a qualified electrician. Most fan canopies (the part that attaches to the ceiling and covers the junction box) can accommodate some degree of slope, not more than 30 degrees. For a steeper slope you would need to discuss your options with an electrician because some products simply are not made for sloping angles. However, in some cases the drop can be increased and an angle mount can be applied.
4. How does a ceiling fan work?
A ceiling fan works by rotating the air with pitched blades. The blades create air flow. There are several different factors that add to this airflow such as size of your fan, and the size of the room. Bear in mind that while ceiling fans contribute to airflow, they are not air-conditioning machines!
5. How do I control the fan?
There are three main ways to operate a fan: a wall control, a pull chain, or a handheld remote. In some instances, you can have both a remote control and pull chain. The remote method is probably the most convenient – just don’t lose the remote! Or you will have to buy a new one. Probably the most common these days is the pull chain method, rather than a wall switch.
