If you are in Farmington Hills, MI, and need one or more ceiling fans installed, you can count on the team at AJ Danboise Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical to do the job right. Taking on a project like this yourself or having an unlicensed friend do it for you is not the proper route to take. DIY projects can be rewarding, but a job like a ceiling fan installation is best left to a professional.

The problems that can come from going with a non-professional are simply not worth it. We care about your comfort and welfare, so we would like to go through all the reasons why having a pro handle your installation is the better choice for you and your family.


When it comes to why you should go with a professional installation, the biggest reason is safety. You should have a great deal of knowledge and experience dealing with such matters before opting to mess with electrical wiring on your own. Not having the proper training could result in you being injured or worse.

There is also the possibility of the DIY work appearing to be sufficient initially, but then something has been done wrong in the wiring that leads to an electrical fire. You also run the risk of damaging the electricity in your home, so you end up in the dark.

Another way that doing a ceiling fan installation on your own could impact your safety is if it is put in loose. Every ceiling fan requires a particular type of ceiling box, and choosing the wrong type for your model can make the system not tight enough.

This could result in you having a fan with shaky blades. In time, this can lead to the fan falling and causing damage to your home or injuring you, a loved one, or a pet. None of these are desirable outcomes and can all be avoided by sticking with the pros.

Saving Money

It may seem counterintuitive to say that going with a professional for a ceiling fan installation will actually save you money as opposed to if you go about it on your own. So, we’ll explain why that is the case.

If you do not do the installation properly, you may have to go back and try again. If any of these attempts cause any wire damage, you could wind up having further damage with each successive try. This could lead to a costly repair from a technician. In addition, you’ll still need to hire an electrician to install the fan, ask us about our electrical repair solutions!

There is also the matter of having the correct tools for the job. Tools can be expensive, especially if you are purchasing them for a specific project. It could wind up costing you even more once you realize that some of the tools were not the right choices for the project. By investing in one of the experienced team members at AJ Danboise Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical, you know that you are getting a highly skilled technician who is going to do the job right for you the first time and always has the proper tools.

Another way that hiring a professional installer can save you money is that they will understand how to correctly set up your appliance so that it achieves optimum efficiency, saving you money on your energy bill.

Saving Time

Time is precious and finite. Between work, relationships, and other obligations, there are only so many hours available. Your free time should be open to spending it in enjoyable ways. Installing a ceiling fan without the proper credentials could lead to a long period of trial and error, not to mention frustration.

This could lead to many wasted hours or days. There is a chance you may never finish it at all. Hiring an electrician means that you can have your installation done in what will feel like no time at all, leaving you the ability to spend your time on the things that matter most.


Like many other appliances, a ceiling fan typically comes with a warranty. Should your ceiling fan have a warranty, it is worth noting that it will be void if it is not installed and serviced by a professional. That means that if a part needs replacement or the fan stops working completely, you will be on the hook for all of the costs.

What to Expect From a Professional Installation

Hopefully, we have made a solid case for why you should go with a professional ceiling fan installation. Now, we will take the time to outline what you can expect from having one of our technicians install your fan for you.

First, choosing the right fans for your needs and what makes sense for your home is crucial. At AJ Danboise Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we have extensive knowledge in this area and can help you make the best choice.

As part of the installation process, we take a look at the areas you would like ceiling fans installed and determine the ideal locations for optimal comfort and safety. Once this is established, we tap new electrical lines, running them over to where the fan will be housed. Next is the connection of this new electrical line to one or more switches that will ultimately control the fan. We then wire the fan itself. The last parts of the process involve securing the fan, testing it, and resolving any issues that come up.

As you have no doubt noticed, all of this would be a lot for a layperson. Something could go wrong at any point in this process for someone without the proper experience. Trained electricians do this type of work on a nearly daily basis and can be trusted with your new appliance.
