You don’t have to be a born-and-raised maryland or virginian to understand the value of the ceiling fan. Whether you migrated to Maryland from the north or came to Virginia from California.
Maybe, for your first summer, you left the fans off while you were enjoying a 7 day cruise. You figured, why waste the energy if you’re not going to be home? Undoubtedly, when you returned, you noticed intensely rapid mold growth and insects in your previously spotless home.
Perhaps you invested in a home that didn’t have ceiling fans and came to find that you would rather have them installed in order to take some pressure and cost off of your A/C. The summers here are just too hot to do without ceiling fans. You’ll be running your air conditioning much more, without them.
You might be one of those industrious, hands-on people who like to take on home improvement projects. You’ve built your own bookshelf, you have a small indoor herb garden, you change the oil in your own car, and you’ve tightened many a bolt in your lifetime. You’re looking at the ceiling fans in your home—they look like they’re from the seventies, they’re browning at the edges, the center piece is 99% rust, or maybe they literally rock from side to side on low. You’re thinking, I could fix that.
While we are not saying that you can’t fix that, in the interest of your safety, we highly recommend that you enlist professional help for your ceiling fan needs. Upwards of 18,000 people are injured every year, due to ceiling fans, according to Electrical Safety Foundation International. Some were probably injured in the process of fixing their faulty fans, some while simply standing under a faulty fan.
If you are afraid of your ceiling fan—if it looks in any way dangerous—we strongly advise against trying to fix it yourself, and we urge you to call a professional right away.
