The Average Cost of a Ceiling Fan Repair
If a general handyman is called to perform a ceiling fan repair, expect to pay a minimum of $50 for the service. At the maximum, homeowners could pay up to $175 for labor. Homeowners who elect to call a professional electrician may pay more due to the certification and licenses that professional electricians must carry. Homeowners who are able to explain the problem to a handyman or electrician over the phone may be able to get a ballpark estimate for the cost of repair before settling on which service to hire.
Cost of Ceiling Fan Replacement Parts
If the motor of the ceiling fan has gone bad, it might be more cost effective for the homeowner to have a new ceiling fan installed. If the fan itself was not very expensive in the first place, repair or replacement of the motor is likely to cost more than just buying a new fan. If the problem is only minor, replacing or tightening a blade or a loose wire is less expensive and more cost effective than the purchase of a new ceiling fan.
Manufacturers' Warranties on Ceiling Fans
If your ceiling fan is a high-end variety, it may be covered under the manufacturer's warranty for parts and perhaps for labor. Before calling for a repair, check the paperwork that came with the fan. Alternatively, find the company name on the fan and contact them directly. They may be able to look up the information related to the original purchase and determine whether or not the device is still under warranty. A manufacturer's warranty may cover a part or all of the cost of fan repair or replacement.
