Hey guys,


How much trouble is it to raise the height of a ceiling fan? My living room ceiling fan is 8ft high. I'm going to ceiling mount my projector and the fan will get in the way unless I can raise it.


What is involved in doing this and are there any DIY links on the internet that describe this process?


thanks,

Mike

How high is the ceiling itself? Is the fan suspended from a rod? If so, you can get a shorter rod and raise the fan, otherwise, you'd need to replace the fan with a low profile unit that hugs the ceiling.


Installation is really not very complicated - there are usually separate leads running to the lamp(s) if you have any, and the motor housing. Follow the instructions and have a helper to pass you stuff. BE SURE to turn off the light/fan circuits at the breaker.


Maybe lowering the fan a little would work too, depending on how much clearance you need, and whether you're inviting Zhizhi Wang (7' 1") to your next screening?


Regards,


Matt

Get a shorter pole in the ceiling fan section of any store. Home Depot and Lowe's carry them. Take out the fan, change out the pole, and put the fan back up.
