Ceiling fans can significantly reduce your electricity bill. However, installing one isn’t something a DIYer should do.
Always engage a licensed electrician to perform this type of installation. At North Shore Electricians, we’ve been installing ceiling fans right across Sydney for over 20 years.
Are you considering installing a ceiling fan in your home? Here’s everything you need to know.
Ceiling Fans: What You Should Know
Your air conditioner or heater consumes a ton of electricity. By operating a ceiling fan in your home in conjunction with either of them, you’re setting yourself up to save a fortune on your monthly electricity bill.
Do the maths: a ceiling fan costs around 13 cents an hour to operate; compare that to up to $3 an hour for an air conditioner, and you can see the savings immediately.
A fan redistributes the air around the house, keeping it at a stable temperature. This means you don’t have to keep adjusting the thermostat, reducing the work the air conditioner or heater needs to do, which lowers your energy consumption.
Ceiling fans aren’t expensive to purchase or install. The unit itself ranges in price from $100–$800. Naturally, if you’re buying a brand name one with additional bells and whistles, be prepared to pay more.
As for the installation cost, a level 1 electrician performs the task at an hourly rate. Depending on the ease or complexity of the project, expect it to last no more than three hours.
North Shore Electricians is a reputable electrical services company that provides high-quality electrical solutions to residents and businesses in the North Shore area.

Change of Season Settings
To get the best out of your fan, be sure to change the setting every summer and winter. This reverses the fan’s direction, significantly changing its effectiveness.
The summer setting moves the air downwards; the benefit is that it creates a cool breeze and helps recirculate the cool air the air conditioner provides.
In winter, reverse the setting; this allows the air to recirculate into every corner of the room, maintaining the comforting feeling.
Ceiling Fan Replacement
You may already have a ceiling fan installed, but how well is it functioning? Are you noticing any of these:
- It makes excessive noise
- It shakes and rattles
- The dimmers (if installed) don’t work
- Lights flicker when you turn it on
- The speed switch makes no difference
Ceiling Fan Installation in Sydney – Our Process
One of our qualified electricians will inspect your property and recommend the ideal place for your ceiling fan.
We’ll look at any access issues regarding the unit’s placement; this could mean anything from a high ceiling to limited space in the attic. We also need to confirm the roof is structurally sound enough to support the fan.
Next, we’ll ensure that your switchboard is compliant and that no additional wiring or circuits must be installed.
Once we’ve completed the thorough inspection, we’ll provide you with a full quote.
When you give us the go-ahead, we’ll install the unit, ensure everything is in total working order, and clean up behind us. It’ll appear like we were never there, except you have a new working ceiling fan.
Lastly, we’ll provide you with a certificate of compliance for electrical work (CCEW), which is a legal requirement.
