If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, you probably enjoy the challenge of a new project. But while there are some home improvements that are quick, easy, and safe, others are not. JFor example, ceiling fan installation isn’t as easy as it looks. Here at Palmetto Electrical Contractors, we recommend that you call a licensed residential electrician for ceiling fan installation and ceiling fan wiring. Here are three risks you could face if you don’t.

  1. You could violate building codes. How familiar are you with your local building codes? There’s a lot to learn. If you don’t follow the rules, you could run into trouble with the authorities. Electricians know these codes and will install your fan the right way.
  2. You could be opening the door to future electrical problems. Improper ceiling fan wiring could lead to malfunctioning switches, electrical socket problems, and other issues. You may end up paying more money to fix these problems than you would have by hiring an electrician in the first place.
  3. You could be putting yourself in danger. If you don’t know what you’re doing, any type of DIY electrical work could put you and your family in danger. Simple things like wearing the wrong shoes or using unstable ladders can cause accidents or loss of life due to electrocution. Stay safe and call an electrician instead.
