Can You Install Ceiling Fans Yourself?

Yes, you can! If you already have a ceiling outlet, then installing a ceiling fan isn’t too complicated. You usually need the ceiling fan itself, some wire strippers and wire connectors, electrical tape, a drill, a circuit tester, a screwdriver, some pliers and safety goggles. And, of course, you’ll need a ladder to actually get up there and install it!

There are a few things that mean installing a ceiling fan is more suitable for an intermediate or expert than a novice. First of all, you’re dealing with electricity. The electrics in older houses, especially, can be full of surprises. So, you might think you’ve turned off the supply… But you really haven’t! Or old cables might have frayed and become exposed. And you might have to upgrade your electrical panel, too.

Not only that, but you’re working at height, which is more dangerous than your average DIY. And what you’re doing is permanent and difficult to fix if anything goes wrong. That’s why most people opt for contractors for jobs like these, even if they usually go the DIY route.

How Do You Install Ceiling Fans?

The first thing you have to do is turn off the electrical supply to the existing light at the breaker box/fuse box. If necessary, remove any facing and expose the wiring, using a circuit tester to check if any of them are still live. Once you’re sure that the electricity is off, remove the fixture. If the existing electrical box is plastic, replace it with a metal box that’s suitable for ceiling fans.

Then you have to follow the ceiling fan’s manufacturer instructions (since all ceiling fans are different). Normally, this involves fixing the bracket either as-is or using an extension, before fixing the ceiling fan in place and wiring it up. This all assumes that there’s already an electrical connection, which there won’t be if you don’t have a ceiling light/other electrics in place.

The point of hiring a contractor is so that they take care of everything for you. If you aren’t comfortable working with electrics—and don’t worry, because plenty of people aren’t—then a contractor can do it all for you. Not only that, but you can have peace of mind that it was installed correctly. So who can you call…?
