Ceiling Fan Installation Service | Quad Cities

Not only does a ceiling fan make a room more stylish and your own, but it also improves the circulation of air. This makes heating and cooling any area of your home much more effective and efficient. It doesn’t matter if you have high, low or sloped ceilings, as a ceiling fan will be a beautiful addition that can help reduce HVAC costs all year long.


Upgrading to a ceiling fan is an excellent way to improve comfort while still maintaining style and convenience. If there’s already a light fixture where you want the fan, then we only need to make some modifications (bracing/brackets) in order for it to support the weight of a new fan when upgrading from a light. Installation becomes more complex if there’s no existing wiring, however even that wouldn’t be much trouble for our skilled electricians here at Koehler Electric.


If your ceiling fan needs to be replaced, one of our professional electricians can easily install a new one in its place. In many instances, the old wiring and switch can still be used so you won’t have to wait long to start using your new fan. If the replacement fan requires changes or upgrades to wiring, supports, or switches, the job will take slightly longer.

Note: Adding or upgrading a ceiling fan requires working with your home’s wiring, so it is best to leave the job to a licensed electrician.


Replacing an existing ceiling fan or a light with a ceiling fan is usually significantly less expensive than an entirely new service. Adding a ceiling fan to a new location usually entails running new wiring and adding a switch or two. However, it can be done. Please get in touch with us for an estimate.

If everything is in order and there’s no need to upgrade wiring or add supports, a ceiling fan replacement can be finished within an hour or two. If you would like us to install new switches or install new wiring, that can add hours if not days onto the job. On the other hand, if you’re adding a ceiling fan to an entirely new location, running brand-new wiring for both the switch and fixture can take an entire day—or even longer.

The size of your ceiling fan is based on the dimensions and height of the room where it will be hung. In general, a 36” fan is for small rooms with walls shorter than 12 feet, while a 42”-48” fan works better in medium-sized rooms between 12 to 15 feet long. For large rooms, you need at least 52 inches in diameter ceiling fans.

Yes, as we do not sell ceiling fans. Any “Big Box” store should have quality fans that will fit your style and needs. Be sure to think of home automation and/or remote control when looking for a ceiling fan.

Many fans can be installed on an angle, typically with a down-rod (but not always) to fit any kind of ceiling.

A common practice to determine the precise down-rod length is to take the ceiling height, then subtract both the ceiling fan height (usually between 12 and 18 inches) as well as the desired hanging height (eight feet).

Some fans come in special models designed to leave adequate clearance for low ceilings, such as flush-mount and ceiling hugger models. or, with the appropriate hardware, many standard fans can be installed in low-clearance settings.
