The first ceiling fans appeared in the late 1860s, in the United States. At that time, they were not powered by any form of electric motor, instead a stream of running water was used in conjunction with a turbine, to drive a system of belts which would turn the blades of two-blade fan units. These systems could accommodate several fan units, and so became popular in stores, restaurants, and offices.
At Advantage Services, we are experts when it comes to ceiling fan repair and installation. Each year we receive thousands of calls from homeowners who need help installing, re-installing, tightening, wiring and re-wiring fans of all shapes, sizes, and models.
Most ceiling fans can be used in two different ways; that is, most fans have a mechanism, commonly an electrical switch, for reversing the direction in which the blades rotate.
Even though most ceiling fans can be mounted to all types of ceilings, not all can be mounted to angled or cathedral ceiling without an added bracket or use of a down-rod extension.
If you need help installing or repairing your ceiling fan, give Advantage Services a call. We would be glad to help you.
