A Stepwise Guide For Ceiling Fan Installation Singapore
A ceiling fan should ideally be installed by a professional as it is a highly technical and dangerous job. You will need to do ho voltage wiring and lift heavy machinery. Moreover, you also need to have all the necessary tools.
So, if you want to do ceiling fan installation Singapore by yourself, make sure you have all the tools and you must be precautious while doing the job.
Here is how you can install a ceiling fan. Read on and act accordingly.
Step 1: Preparations
First things first, do the necessary preparations for the ceiling fan installation Singapore. Gather all the required tools and turn off the power supply. Tools required for ceiling fan installation are similar to what is required for light installation Singapore. Here is a list of tools you’ll need for the job:
- Crescent wrench
- Voltage teaser
- Cordless drill
- Wire cutters
- Electrician’s tape
- Safety glasses and dist mask
Step 2: Remove Already Installed Fan And Fixtures
If there is already a fan or light fixtures installed, you should take it out first. For light fixtures, take out the glass fitters and bulb first and then move towards the canopy and mounting bracket. Similarly for the fan installed, take out the light kit and then move towards fan blades, canopy, motor assembly, and mounting bracket.
Follow the given order strictly otherwise you will cause any damage.
Step 3: Remove The Existing Electrical Box And Install Brace
Next, you should remove the existing electrical box from the ceiling. If it is nailed to the ceiling, pry with a flat bar. If it is hanging, you will need to loosen some screws and take out the metal plate in the ceiling. Make sure that all parts are removed from the ceiling and wipe the area for any dust and dirt.
Now that you have removed the old electrical box, it’s time to install the new brace. Insert the brace into the hole in the ceiling and support the brace near the two joists. Now turn the support brace until it locks into the joist. Don’t forget to tighten the brace with a crescent wrench. Lastly, fix the new electrical box to the brace and make sure it is tightly locked.
Step 4: Assemble The Ceiling Fan
First, you will need to fix the mounting bracket. This will hold the fan so make sure it is properly fixed and tightly screwed otherwise your fan will fall down. Also, make sure to take out the wires from the mounting bracket hole to connect it to the fan motor in the next step.
Now pick up the fan motor and slide it into the mounting bracket (it will go inside pretty easily). While doing so, make sure that your ladder is stable because the fan motor is heavy and a slight unbalance can make you fall from the ladder.
Step 4: Connect The Wires
Now that you have mounted your fan motor, start connecting the wires. The wires are colour-coded for your convenience. They must be black, white, and green. Take extra care while connecting the wires and connect the same colour wires to each other. Also, make sure they are connected properly.
Turn on the power supply and switch on the fan to check if it is working and the connections are fine. If all’s well, put on the canopy and move towards the next step.
Step 5: Attach The Fan Blades
The last step of ceiling fan installation in Singapore is attaching the fan blades. It is a pretty easy step but first turn off the power supply for safety. Take the blades one by one and attach them to the fan motor by tightening the screws provided.
Step 6: Enjoy The Cool Air From The Fan
Your fan is perfectly installed now. Turn on the power supply and relax under the fan.
If you face any problems during the installation, it is better to call a professional electrician to avoid any mishap.
