Indoor ceiling fans – Placing a ceiling fan instead of an overhead light is a great way to cool your home. According to an article on Home Energy, nearly two-thirds of US households now have ceiling fans. Ceiling fans are not difficult to install and can be done in just a couple of hours. Turn the switch to the headlights you remove. After turning the power switch, check the light by turning it on and off. When you know that the current is off, you can start removing the luminaire.
Take the light fixtures
Remove the lid from the luminaire and take the onions. Loosen the nuts or screws that hold the luminaire in the ceiling. Disconnect the wires one by one by unscrewing cable connectors. Start with the black cable, then white and then green. Keep the threads separated when you connect each. Now that the fixture is removed, test the current one more time with a voltage tester. Place one probe on the black cable and one on white. It should not be reading.

Install ceiling fan
Each manufacturer is different so make sure to follow their specific instructions. Pull electric through the mounting plate for your indoor ceiling fans. Screw the mounting plate into place, and make sure it is the level. If necessary, put the tiles around the screws between the plate and the ceiling.
Locate the hook on the mounting plate that you can hang the engine on. Place the engine on the hook and start connecting the cables. Use plastic cable connectors to twist wires together. After the wires are connected, position the motor into place on the mounting plate and secure it with the nuts over the bolts. Tighten all nuts, but do not touch them and dress them. Attach the holders to the indoor ceiling fans blades using the hardware provided. Some models have two different patterns on either side of the magazine. Make sure that you attach the brackets the same to each blade.
Place the engine hood over the engine assembly and screw it onto the mounting plate. Attach the blades to the fan motor. After all the leaflets are attached, check the level of them. Take a tape measure and measure from the ceiling to each sheet. The distance should be within a 1/8 of an inch apart from each other. If they are not included in your instruction manual on how to specifically balance your fan. Attach the base plate to the bottom of the engine and connect the fan chain. Turn the power back on to the box and use your fan.
