Getting your ceiling fan installed by a professional is essential. Under Australian regulations, a qualified electrician must be used for ceiling fan installations and the client should receive a signed certificate issued by the electrician. The primary aim of the regulation is to protect you from injury or death by electrocution.
A standard fan will often take approximately an hour to be installed, depending on a few factors including wiring, whether it is to be wall controlled, or remote controlled, and the ease of install location to name a few. If you are installing more than one fan, it is a good idea to get them done at the same time as this will reduce the cost per fan.
