Installation of Long Down Rod Ceiling Fan

Ceiling Fan on High Ceiling

My house has a high ceiling, last timeĀ  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.

Electrical Contractor

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.
