How Much Does it Cost to Have A Ceiling Fan Installed?
When calculating the total cost of a new ceiling fan installation, there are several factors that you must account for. Those factors are:
The Retail Price of the Ceiling Fan That you Purchase
Ceiling fans can cost anywhere from $50-$1000+ depending on what you are looking for. If you are just looking to buy an average ceiling fan without anything special added, you can expect to spend around $150 for a quality ceiling fan that will last several years. We suggest getting a ceiling fan around this range if you can because cheap fans tend to give out much faster than other fans.
The Cost of the Service to Install the Ceiling Fan
To have a professional electrician come into your home to install a ceiling fan can cost anywhere between $50-$200. This labor fee will depend on how many ceiling fans you are having installed as well as if the location in which you are wiring needs extra wiring to power the fan.
How Often Do Ceiling Fans Need to be Replaced?
As mentioned before, the quality of your ceiling fan correlates with how long it will last. You can expect your new ceiling fan to last anywhere between 3 and 10 years. If you buy a low quality ceiling fan for $50 it may only last a few years. It may be worth it to spend a little more so that your ceiling fan will last longer and you don’t have to pay the installation fee of an electrician every couple of years.
If you buy a fan around the $150 price range, you can expect it to last between 5-10 years. Most ceiling fans won’t last more than 10 years.
