Modern ceiling fans are great, they are energy efficient, and quiet, come with many styling options and can save you using your aircon system a great deal.
Like a lot of electrical appliances, they need proper and safe installation to work effectively. Their size, power, placement, fixing and wiring all need to be done properly by an electrician.
We service all ceiling fans. Older units may sometimes need re-aligning, have faulty wiring, or need repair to the blades or a motor changed (if parts are available). We can service most fans and get them running as new again and if they need replacing we will advise on what’s best.
Most ceiling fans can have a light, will be pretty quiet, have a multi-speed operation and have an easy remote control.

The size of the blades should be determined by the area of the room. Our expert electricians will ensure the correct installation of any fan.
Most modern units come with remotes, are connected to your lights and some are “smart” fans, allowing an app from your device or smart home system to control them. There are many many options so speak to us about what will best suit your needs.
