  • Combo Light/Ceiling Fan…This Will Save You Money

    Looking to save money on electric and AC this summer? Install the combo light/ceiling fan in some of the rooms in your home. I have one in my room, and it is great. Here are some of the steps of a very useful guide to installing the fans yourself!

    Step 1: Determine the Right-Size Fan

    The larger the room, the bigger the fan. Measure the longest wall in the room. If it is less than 12 feet, you'll need a fan that is 36-inches in diameter. If the longest wall is 12 to 15 feet, get a 42-inch fan. Anything over 15 feet, you'll need a 52-inch fan

    Step 2: Remove the Existing Light Fixture

    To replace an existing fixture, first turn off electricity at the home’s main electrical panel to the circuit that powers the light and its switch. Cover the switch with tape to make sure it doesn't get turned back on while you are working (Image 1). Use a circuit tester to ensure that the power is off before you touch any of the electrical wiring.
