Ceiling Fan Care Checklist in 3 Easy Steps

August 20, 2019 | Blog

ceiling fan careCeiling fans are great way to keep your home cool and energy costs low, especially during hot, steamy summers in the Coastal Bend area. However, proper ceiling fan care and maintenance are crucial in order to maximize the efficiency and extend the lifespan of your fan.

Consider the following tips to keep your fan in good shape:

Proper Cleaning

Ceiling fan blades are a common place for dust accumulation, which can affect the operation and efficiency of the fan. A significant amount of dust may cause your fan to shake or overwork your fan’s motor. Regularly wipe down each blade with a wet rag. You can also use a specialized ceiling fan brush or a vacuum. For heavy dust build-up, consider removing the blades from the fan before cleaning.

Tighten Screws and Fasteners

Proper ceiling fan care involves regular inspection of screws and fasteners, especially after removing the blades. Making sure screws are secure on a regular basis is important for increasing the longevity of your fan. Lose screws often result in a noisy or wobbly fan, but overtightening can also have negative effects, such as uneven or warped blades.

Examine Condition and Position

Among the most important components of proper ceiling fan care is the condition and position of your fan’s blades. Warped or cracked blades can lead to a wobbly ceiling fan. Be sure to periodically remove the blades to check their condition and replace any that are damaged. Also, measure the distance between each blade tip and the ceiling to ensure alignment of each blade.

Maintaining proper ceiling fan care is simple and important. It’s also a great way to ensure longterm energy efficiency and low utility bills in your home.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
