Technically, yes you could install your ceiling fans yourself. However, this approach is not without its drawbacks. This is especially true if you are not experienced in handling electrical appliances.
DIY Installs Are a Hassle
The most obvious reason why you should skip the self-install route is that it is inconvenient. Even a single ceiling fan installation can take an inexperienced installer several hours. That is assuming everything goes smoothly. Oftentimes, it does not.
If your home is a little older or you are replacing a standard light fixture with a fan, you are likely to encounter unexpected wiring issues. This means that you will be making at least one extra trip to the hardware store to buy a part that you did not know you needed.
If you plan on installing multiple ceiling fans, that quick upgrade can easily turn into a stress-filled weekend. The best route is to lighten up and call Paul!
Unexpected Costs and Hazards
As noted above, you will very likely encounter some unusual wiring setups, particularly in older homes. This can result in hidden costs that quickly add up. An improper installation can even damage your brand-new ceiling fan, which will require total replacement.
Electrical work can be dangerous too. That is why it is always a good idea to leave it to the professionals at Paul Macrina Electrical Contracting.
