How to Install Ceiling Fans in Singapore

(Last Updated On: August 28, 2018)

Ceiling fans are an important component of every household located in humid and warm places like Singapore. The wide blades of the ceiling fan circulate the air in the room, which then makes the area feel cooler.

Many homeowners prefer to go DIY by conducting a ceiling fan installation in Singapore by themselves. This is common as all the instructions are clearly stated in the manual given together with the ceiling fan. However, a slight mistake in this process may cause the homeowner to bear heavier expenses for damage control in the future that may even cost more than an electrician.

It is, then, wiser to contact a licensed electrical contractor, like Daylight Electrician Singapore, for effective and safe installation of newly purchased ceiling fans. Reputable electrical companies in the country follow the steps below when installing a new ceiling fan. Make sure that your electrician carries out each step carefully in order to prevent any future accidents.

Step by step procedure on how to install a ceiling fan

It takes only a day to install a ceiling fan in a room and the cost of this installation by a reliable electrical company in Singapore is usually quite affordable.

  • First of all, the slope of the ceiling where the fan should be installed needs to be measured carefully. The height of the ceiling from the floor should be measured as well. These are needed in order to correctly calculate the ideal measurements required for the ceiling fan to operate. The length of the down rod and the diameter of the fan blades should also be determined prior to buying a new fan.
  • The power supply should be switched off from the mains to avoid any accidents during the ceiling fan installation. There should not be any other fixtures near the chosen point for the fan installation. The outlet box should also be marked to provide support to the vertically hanging ceiling fan. Remember, the installer should carefully read all the instructions and warnings written in the manual given by the ceiling fan manufacturer.

  • The person handling the fan installation should have all the necessary tools needed to complete the task, most of which include a cordless drill, an adjustable wrench, wire cutters, screwdrivers, pliers, tape, safety glasses and a ladder.
  • Carefully decide the position of where you want to install your new ceiling fan. This is because the blades of the ceiling fan should be at least 7 feet above the ground and 10 inches below the ceiling to ensure a smooth operation. Moreover, the ceiling fan should be far away from the walls, doors, wall cabinets, or any other feature to avoid collisions.

  • If any previous ceiling fan or light fixture were installed on the chosen spot, the existing electrical feature and the electrical box should be opened with a screwdriver after switching off the power supply. Clean the spot and make sure it is free from dirt before installing the new ceiling fan there. Professional electricians such as those from Daylight Electrician Singapore should be aware of the procedures required when installing a ceiling fan where a light fixture exists.
  • The mounting bracket should be installed on the outlet box of the ceiling fan with the help of the screws and other fixing materials. The electrical wiring of the ceiling fan should be installed on the mounting bracket in which the motor of the fan needs to be attached. But don’t fret, as licensed electricians should know how to install ceiling fan wirings.
  • Next, the motor of the ceiling fan needs to be assembled and attached to the down rod of the ceiling bracket by connecting the wirings with the wire nuts. Wires of the same colour from both the fan body and the receiver should be connected together. This is done in order to complete the circuit of electrical wiring for the ceiling fan operation.
  • The canopy of the fan body should be screwed onto the mounting bracket of the ceiling fan. Lastly, the fan blades should be attached to the fan motor by inserting the grommets on the holes of the blades while fasting it to the motor’s body.
