There may come a time when you want to change out the blades for your outdoor ceiling fan. Perhaps your outdoor furniture is being replaced and the blades need to be changed to reflect this change in décor. This can be done very easily.
Changing the blades is not difficult to do. There is only one tool that you need to accomplish this task. You only need to have a screw driver that will fit the screws on the fan blades.
The best part when changing them out is that there are many choices that can be made. This is because there are so many different varieties of them on the market today. Using plastic as the material for them is a benefit in many ways. One way is that they will not retain any water that can cause damage in the motor.
There are many styles to choose from including animal prints, vivid colors and wood grain for those who want a more natural appearance. There are also stickers that can be applied to get an even funkier look to your outdoor ceiling fan.
The first thing you need to do is shut down all electricity that is running to the fan. This will avoid getting an electric shock. Next, remove the old fan blades by taking out the screws that are holding them on. Keep them handy as you will need them to put the new blades on. When this is completed, turn the electricity back on and you are ready to go.
There is nothing more that needs to be done to have your fan completely different. If you would have known it was this easy you may have made this change sooner. Sit back and enjoy your new looking outdoor ceiling fan that you changed all on your own!
