Ceiling Fan Installation and Repair
Ceilings fans are a great way to save money on your electric bill every month all while keeping your home cool during the winter and warmer in the winter. The electricity that is used while running a ceiling fan can be compared to a standard light bulb. However, where the difference is that you can save 20% to 40% on your cooling costs and up to 10% on your heating cost simply by running a ceiling fan and having in recirculate air throughout your rooms. That savings really adds up over time, perhaps even paying for the fan and its installation!
How does a ceiling fan help keep you cool (or warm)?
In cold weather, warm air rises and collects around the ceiling. Ceiling fans circulate the warm air and push it back downward toward to floor. In the warmer summer months, ceiling fans create a cool breeze to keep air circulating keeping the air fresh and preventing it from becoming too damp or stagnant.
Can I have a ceiling fan installed in my home?
No matter when your home was built or the structure or accessibility of the ceiling, our expert electricians will be able to install your ceiling fan of choice. We also can install ceiling fans in your sunrooms, lanais, garages or even outdoor work sheds.
Can I do it myself?
You can and there’s always a great deal of satisfaction in tackling a home improvement project on your own but ceiling fan installations require a good understanding on electrical wiring and proper mounting of heavy fixtures. Some ceiling fans can weigh up to 50 pounds or more and remember, electricity can be deadly. All ceiling fans must be secured properly and have a UL listed box and if you have never installed a ceiling fan, the instructions can be somewhat confusing to the average Joe.
These are just a couple of reasons why you should hire a licensed electrical contractor like Got Watts Electric & Solar™. On top of that, ceiling fan installation for a beginner can take hours, where as one of our electricians can do it in no time flat. Don’t spend hours of your time just to get frustrated with the fan and then having to call an electrician.
Ceiling Fan Repair
Got Watts Electric & Solar™ also handles ceiling fan repair. Does your existing ceiling fan hum, vibrate, shake or has stopped working altogether? If your ceiling makes a buzzing sound, wobbles or moves really slow, then call us today as this is an indicator of a potentially dangerous electrical hazard.
A chandelier can take an ordinary room and provide it with a dramatic “face-lift”, instantly changing the look and feel of your room and making a statement about your taste in design. Whether you are installing a new chandelier or upgrading to a new one, the professionals at Got Watts Electric & Solar™ are here to serve you with expert installation by licensed, bonded and insured electricians.
When installing a new chandelier in a location never wired for electricity before, the installation by our professionals will be a more in depth wiring process, requiring new wiring being run from your existing electrical circuit to the desired location for your new chandelier.
If you are upgrading your current chandelier, or installing a chandelier to replace something currently in your desired location, such as a ceiling fan or light, the installation is quicker and will require less time and less in depth wiring. The ease of access with which you provide our electrician in order to get to your ceiling and current wiring will determine the length of time needed to install your chandelier.

Looking for an inexpensive, innovative way to add subtle ambiance to your home indoors or out? LED Lighting is the first choice! The transformative quality of LED lighting in your kitchen, living room or dining room can be compared to the soft glow of candlelight, without the fire hazard and expense of constant replacement.
In your garden or landscaped areas outdoors or even on your back patio or pool area, the warm glow of LED lights provides greater enjoyment of your favorite spot to entertain or kick back and relax, that daylight cannot capture.
While there are many options for installing your own LED lighting, keep in mind that proper “moonlit” lighting is an art, and your best bet is going with a professional. With an artistic design in mind, the professionals at Got Watts Electric & Solar™ know the art of wiring an entire lighting system. Creative in our methods, when your lighting system is installed, little trace is left of our presence, wires are subtly disguised and your LED lighting system is nurtured and maintained regularly, even expanded at your request.

Make those dark closed in spaces feel more spacious while getting light where you need it most. With recessed and track lighting the possibilities are endless…you can showcase interior architecture, highlight furniture, work areas and art.

For your ultimate comfort and safety, security lighting is an option to consider on the exterior of your home. Security lighting and flood lights typically brighten up entry ways and walk ways to enhance security and visibility.

The professionals at Got Watts Electric & Solar™ want to help keep your home and family safe from criminal activity or from any unfortunate trips, falls or injuries from walking around after dark.
