Over yesterday and today, I installed a new ceiling fan and switch in the layout room. When the light fixture went out a while back, I figured it could be the switch as I have already replaced one in the house. I didn't like the old fan anyway so I purchased a replacement. The old unit was loud and out of balance. Replaced the fan. Found the light still not working. I looked over to the light switch which is now residing right under the Peoria extension. I was like crap. It wasn't bad to replace the switch though. I was done with the job within a few minutes.
So now, we have a new 52" fan to replicate an EF-3 tornado. The light kits that come with these are so lacking. I will still use the old torch lamp with the 300 watt bulb. This can recreate noon time on the equator!
The new fan is super quiet and generates good air flow!
