My house has a high ceiling, last time I installed a ceiling fan with short down rod. It was hard to clean up and over the years it was becoming slow due to dust.
So I had to install new one with long down rod. I measured and I needed a 160 cm down rod.
Buying Ceiling Fan, Long Down Rod, Spray Paint & Safety Cable
I went to a hardware shop to buy new ceiling fan. I chose KDK due to its reliability.
The KDK ceiling fan cost me around RM300.
I asked the seller whether the ceiling fan could support long down rod and whether they had available down rod. Fortunately they had the 160cm down rod that I needed.
Then I bought brown spray paint to spray the white down rod.
At same time, I needed to buy cable to replace the short safety cable.
I managed to get good electrical & affordable contractor to install my ceiling fan. I did ask few contractors most of them charge around RM500. But this contractor only charge RM340.
Installing high ceiling fan is expensive because the contractor has to set up a scaffolding or a staging for easier installation. The contractor also will lengthen the ceiling fan electrical cable. Unfortunately by doing this it will void the ceiling fan warranty.
It took around 1 hour an half to complete the job. I was really satisfied with their workmanship and professionalism. The ceiling fan is very stable. Not much swaying from left or right.
