In general, it is safer to hire an experienced electrician to install the ceiling fan for you. This is particularly true if you are replacing a ceiling light fixture with a fan. The ceiling box for a light isn’t heavy duty enough to hold the full weight of a ceiling fan, so it will need to be replaced. If you aren’t familiar with this type of task, you might need to get some help with it.
Perhaps the most important reason why you should hire a professional electrician to complete your ceiling fan installation is the simple fact that it is safer. An experienced electrician understands exactly what must be done to ensure a proper installation. Faulty wiring can lead to a fire, so doing it yourself may not be safe. An electrician ensures that the work is completed properly and according to code.
