In the summer months, you may find that your child's bedroom needs a little air-conditioning. A solution is to fit a ceiling fan. Since it is likely that your child's room is on the small side, it will be best to install small ceiling fans there and preferably a ceiling fan with a light fitted so that you can simply replace the existing light fixture with the fan lighting.
Choose your model
Cheap ceiling fans are widely available and come in a variety of shapes and designs. A simple black or white ceiling fan could be a good choice. However, if your child is a girl, you can go for a more feminine pink. Ideally, your fan should be no larger than approximately 45 inches (115 cm).
Remove the existing light fixture
First, you will need to disconnect the power supply. Then, you can begin to remove the light fixture by unscrewing the outer casing anti-clockwise. Next, remove all the wires from the light fixture and remove the screws holding the mounting bracket in place.
Install the fan's mounting bracket
Place the fan's mounting bracket into position and mark the ceiling in pencil where the holding screws will go. In general, these will be different from the existing holes. So, you will need to drill new holes at the appropriate points. Drill the holes using a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the screws used to mount the bracket in place.
Mount the bracket
Thread the wires protruding from the ceiling through the holes on the mounting bracket and place the bracket in position. Insert the screws and tighten with your fingers. Then - starting in one corner - tighten the screws in turn moving from opposite to opposite corner. Ideally, you should use a power-screwdriver for this if you have one.
Install the housing
Lift the housing to the bracket and connect all the wires. Consult the installation instructions here that came with the fan to ensure that you connect the wires correctly, and don't forget to connect the earth wire. Attach the housing to the bracket by tightening the screws on the housing's outer rim.
Attach the fan blades
Attach the fan blades as per the manufacturer's instructions. Finally, you can insert the light bulb and then attach the light's globe by screwing it clockwise into the fan casing. Turn the electricity back on and test.
