What is the going rate to have a ceiling fan installed, uninstalled or removed from my home?

If you are dealing with an experienced fan installer, then generally a fan installation will take a half an hour. The most it should take is an hour. Now – here’s the tricky part. If the fan installer or contractor you are using only charges by the hour, that’s great. But, a lot of companies will charge for a 2 hour minimum, even if they are on site for only an hour. Keep this in mind.

Cost to install a ceiling fan

The usual going rate for fan installation and contractors runs from $45-$75/hour. If you call around, you will be able to compare rates. Look for a licensed contractor who can do installs around $50/hour. This is the going rate. And also, ask them whether or not they charge for a 2 hour minimum.

Say you have purchased four ceiling fans for the home, and you’d like to have them all installed. You should be looking like this:

    • Four ceiling fans
    • 30 minutes each to install
    • 4 x 30 minutes = 2 hours
    • 2 hours x $50/hour = $100 to install four fans

The most you should pay for this would be $150-$200 on the high end.

 

Can I make a fan with a down rod flush mount to the ceiling?

Can I make a fan with a down rod flush mount to the ceiling? In essence, this would turn a normal ceiling fan into a flushmount ceiling fan.

No, usually you cannot do this. The reason for this is a flush mount fan has a plate that mounts both to the box, and to the down rod. This plate also has a hanger. You can try looking for a shorter down rod though. The places you can find the shorter down rod are Lowes and HD. You should be able to find a short down rod all the way down to 4 inches.
