Signs Your Ceiling Fan Needs to Be Replaced
Ceiling fans provide relief from the heat without overworking your AC system or drastically increasing your utility bills. They last around 10 years depending on the quality of the fan and the frequency of usage. As such, ceiling fans are a worthwhile investment for your home. However, sometimes they need earlier replacement.
Here are a few signs your ceiling fan may need to be replaced:
- Malfunctioning: If your ceiling fan cannot run at higher speeds or shuts off unexpectedly, it may be due to its age. Our technicians can investigate this issue and help you with a replacement if needed.
- Unusual sounds: If you hear buzzing, squeaks, grinding, or any other odd sounds, it may be time to replace your ceiling fan. Some sounds may be a sign of loose screws or a need for oil. However, if the issue persists, this may be a sign of a broken motor or other pieces of your ceiling fan that are no longer working.
- Shaking: A wobbly or shaking ceiling fan can be potentially dangerous. Sometimes this can be due to buildup of dust on the blades, loose screws, or unaligned blades. If the issue continues it is most likely you are in need of a replacement.
- Multiple repairs: If your ceiling fan has gone through multiple repairs and still has issues, it is most likely time to replace it. Your ceiling fan may be outdated and investing in a new one can be a cost-effective decision.
If you are having trouble with your ceiling fan, these issues can sometimes be simple and easily fixed by doing a few repairs. However, if the signs persist after repairs and your fan is on the older side, then it may be time to invest in a new one. Our technicians have years of experience diagnosing ceiling fan issues and are more than happy to work with you to find the best new ceiling fan for you and your home.
