Before installation and materials you will need
Materials needed Ceiling fan, screw driver, wire connectors, electrical tape Steps prior to installation - Switch off all the electricity going to the bathroom at your home's breaker box, then check to ensure that it is really turned off before you start. You need to do this before you begin any work. - Remove the current light fixture so that the wires and the box in the ceiling will be exposed.
- Secure the ceiling fan's mounting bracket directly into the ceiling box. - Affix the fan's base in the mounting bracket. It's advisable that you go over the instructions on the fan's box before sliding the base so that you would know the installation procedure for the model that you have. - Secure the ceiling fan's wiring to the wiring found in the ceiling. The black wire goes with the other black wire, while the white wire goes with the other white wire. Next, you need to attach the fan's ground wire either to a screw situated in the mounting bracket or to a ground wire located in the ceiling. When attaching the wires, twist the ends together, then fasten by drilling a screw. For protection, wrap the connector and wire with electrical tape. - Affix the fan cover to hide the wires and bracket. Typically, modern ceiling fan covers are screwed on during installation. However, this may vary depending the model, so it is best to go over the instructions on the box of the fan to be sure. - Secure the fan blades onto the base of the fan using a screw. - Set the switch of the ceiling fan to where you would like it. You would find a switch on the fan's base which you can flip to either make the fan suck up air or blow air down.
