DIY Jobs Gone Wrong Posted on January 15, 2016 at 9:00 am.Written by Plumbing Company DIY Risks Of Installing Ceiling Fans And Chandeliers Installation Isn’t As Easy As It Seems Looking at a ceiling fan may make one think that it’s easy enough to install, so many may try to do it themselves, and this can be a big mistake. You may have seen some DIY jobs gone wrong. Some may get lucky and install a ceiling fan with no problems, but there are many hazards when it comes to electrical work, and problems can range from a non-working unit to a fire hazard. Even if you want to install a chandelier in your Glendale, it can still be a problem because connecting the right wires is still necessary to get chandelier working properly. Chandeliers can also be heavy, and if they are not installed properly, then you may have a big missile overhead that can fall at any moment, and the same goes for a ceiling fan. The Risks Involved There are many big risks involved when working with electricity, and some who try to install chandeliers or ceiling fans on their own may not even be wise enough to know that they have to turn off the electricity before doing any installations. Even those who have the outlet off may still not connect the wiring properly, and this can lead to electric sparks coming from the wiring once the unit is turned on. Sparks can lead to a fire hazard, which can ignite in the room where the chandelier or ceiling fan has been installed. Even if the ceiling fan is put together properly, if it’s not secured in place on the ceiling, then it’s likely to fall after it’s turned on, and this can be a great hazard for those who are under the fan when it’s spinning. With all the hazards that are possible by installing a fan or chandelier on your own, it may be best to get a professional to do it instead, especially since it will be done right the first time, it’s low in cost, and you have more options available to you. A Professional Can Give You More Options A professional can install a chandelier or ceiling fan in your Glendale home and give you the option of a separate switch to turn off the light and leave the ceiling fan on or vice versa. It’s also possible for a dimmer switch to be installed, giving you the option of lower lighting from a chandelier or a ceiling fan, which is something that’s unlikely to be done by someone who’s doing it themselves.
