Ceiling fans are an essential part of how Sydneysiders stay cool when the temps heat up. Whether you’re looking to add fans indoors or outdoors or need to replace a faulty fan, it can be tempting to want to DIY the work. However, if these are installed improperly, they can become a hazard to you and your family.

That’s just one reason why regulations don’t permit homeowners (or businessowners for that matter) to install their own ceiling fans. Instead, you can turn to a qualified, licensed, and insured electrician to supply and install a fan properly for you. And it will likely be much less hassle than if you had attempted it anyway.

At Scott Electrics, we provide safe ceiling fan installation for homes throughout Sydney. We’re well-versed in exactly what it takes to ensure that your fan it properly installed with the right support and electrical wiring. To get a fast quote, just call us on 02 9807 7408.

Ceiling Fan Installs for New & Replacement Fixtures

When it comes to installing a ceiling fan of any kind, you’re going to want to turn to an electrician for help. This includes brand new fans, where brand new mounting hardware and wiring will be needed, as well as replacement fans.

Many homeowners think that it should be a simple swap job if they are replacing a ceiling fan, but in reality, these can still become complicated. An electrician will check to make sure the wiring to the fan is still in proper condition. They will also confirm that there is adequate support in the ceiling itself for the new fan.

In some cases, you may not even need to replace your ceiling fan. It just might need some repair work instead. Here are some signs that you need an electrician:

  • Flickering lights
  • Shaking and rattling
  • Sounds when turned on
  • Dimmers no longer work
  • Speed variation not working

How Long is the Installation Process?

No matter the project type, it shouldn’t take long for you to get up and running with a new ceiling fan in your home. For a brand-new fan installation, an electrician should take between 2-3 hours on average to complete the job. This includes running new wiring, checking ceiling supports, and installing a new switch on the wall to allow for operation.

The replacement and repair can take much less time. In most cases, a swap out project can take an hour in total to complete, assuming that the electrician can use the same electrical boxes and wiring that are already in place. Repairs, or trying to salvage an existing fan, will vary since it depends on what is wrong with the unit and how extensive the repair work is.

A few factors can slow the process down overall. One is if your ceiling is overly high or the fan is difficult to reach. Another is whether there is adequate access to the ceiling from an attic or loft space to run new wiring from.

What Does it Cost to Install a New Ceiling Fan in my Sydney’s Home?

This is going to be a factor of several line items on any estimate. The first is the cost of the actual ceiling fan. Units range in price based on size, design, and features and can fall anywhere between $100 and $800 or more.

There are also costs for the electrician’s work itself. That will be priced out with a call out fee, which covers the electrician’s trip to your home or office, and then an hourly rate for the time spent on the actual installation work.

So where does this land you when it come to price? A typical replacement with supply and installation will run, on average, between $300-$500. Go for a more intricate, elaborate, or ornate fan, and you will see those numbers rise, too.

How to Choose an Electrician for Your Fan Upgrade Project

With so many electricians in Sydney touting that they can take care of all your electrical needs, how can you choose the best provider? There are actually quite a few clear criteria that will narrow down the competition quickly for you.

Always ask how long a company has been in business for in your locale. You don’t want to work with someone who is new to the field and perhaps less experienced than other tradies out there. You also don’t want to work with someone who isn’t local to you and will take longer to get in touch with if things go wrong or your need help down the road.

With experience out of the way, you can also look at reputation and social proofs. Go online and look at sites like Facebook and Google to see what people say about a company and their experience with them. You can also check the electrician’s website for testimonials and/or ask them directly for customer reviews or referrals.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ceiling Fan Installation in Sydney
