Professional Ceiling Fan Services

Upside Down is available for installing ceiling fans indoors and out. We can also replace older fans with worn-out motors to boost the airflow around your home. This includes all wiring work and wall switches in your positions of choice.

Ceiling fans are available in various shapes, sizes and materials. So, there's bound to be an ideal option to suit your home. Select between simple fans constructed from sturdy plastic to tasteful timber blades and high performance ones with powder coated metal blades. Be sure to shop around and find the ideal ceiling fans to fit your aesthetic. Then, contact Upside Down to complete your installation.

You will require an electrician to install electrical cabling between the power supply, wall switch, and fan. Even for a replacement with suitable existing and compliant wiring, an electrician is required under Australian law to handle all electrical work.

Just make sure to go with reversible fans. Many modern fans feature an option for reversing the direction of blade rotation. During summer, a ceiling fan should rotate anticlockwise. This forces air down to create a desirable wind chill effect.

During winter, use the remote control or button on the fan itself to switch direction clockwise. A ceiling fan spinning clockwise creates an updraft that pulls cold air away from occupants and forces trapped air at the ceiling down to help make a home feel warmer.

Ceiling Fans FAQ

A ceiling fan can improve the airflow in a room, especially when combined with an air conditioner. Find the right ceiling fan for your needs.

There are several factors to think about when shopping for a ceiling fan for your home. 
  • Where are you looking to install the fan? There are different types of fans for indoor and outdoor living spaces.
  • The size of the room will influence the size of the fan. The larger the room, the larger the fan required for maximum effectiveness.
  • The ceiling height will also determine whether you need an extension rod in order to enjoy optimal air flow. 
  • The motors can differ between fans. A DC motor-powered fan will generally be quieter, more efficient and display better all-round performance than an AC motor-powered ceiling fan, but at the same time will be more expensive to purchase as well. 
  • Purchasing a ceiling fan with a built-in light can eradicate the need for, and the costs that come with, installing additional lights in the room.

Ceiling fans with three blades are typically more affordable at the point of purchase. They generally create less drag on the fan’s motor, enabling it to move faster with less energy required. Three-blade ceiling fans can, however, be comparatively louder than fans with four or five blades.  If you’re looking for a ceiling fan with four blades, you’ll enjoy the benefits of quieter performance and improved aesthetic appeal, but the additional blade can mean the air will be moved around the room slower than what a 3-blade fan will do.  A 5-blade fan will be even quieter than a 3 or 4-blade model, but will also generate greater drag on the motor, meaning the fan needs to work harder to achieve greater air movement. Four and 5-blade fans are typically more expensive to purchase as well.

The blades of ceiling fans can often be made from a variety of materials including plywood, ABS and metal. Metal blades typically offer greater air flow than plywood or ABS blades, but can be louder as well.
