Ceiling fan installation may appear simple at first glance, however completing the project safely isn’t so simple. AJ’s electrical technicians have extensive experience with ceiling fan installations. Through our years of experience we have faced challenges including installations on sloped ceilings and exceedingly high ceilings (26 feet). We have the knowledge to know how to install a new wiring box and the fan hanger bracket properly with all the wires safely connected. In accordance to code requirements of British Columbia.
If your installation is on an upper floor with an attic, we are able to install your fan with no damage to the ceiling. Our experts are also able to order a higher quality fan than what’s available at local building supplies stores, and save you the hassle of worrying about the details when it comes to your electrical box’s capabilities and code requirements pertaining to your ceiling fan installation.
COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT CEILING FAN INSTALLATION
1. How much does it cost to have someone install a ceiling fan?
Installing a ceiling fan usually takes about 1-2 hours depending on if new wiring is needed. An installation will typically run in the range of $300 – $400 including material, if there is a junction box already there.
2. Can I install a ceiling fan by myself?
While it is possible to install a ceiling fan on your own, like most electrical jobs there are inherent risks that come without doing so with professional knowledge and experience. Also, if you need to update or install a fan-approved electrical box, it is always recommended to hire a professional.
3. Is installing a ceiling fan a one person job?
As ceiling fans are so large and awkward to handle, installation is definitely a two person job. Having two people to complete the job will not only make it safer, but it will also make the installation faster. A second pair of hands can pass you tools, help mount the bracket and fan, as well as stabilize the ladder.
Steps to install a ceiling fan:
- Mount the junction box
- Mount the bracket
- Install the safety cable
- Set the down rod
- Wire the ceiling fan
- Attach the blade and bulb
- Turn on the power source and test!

The Service Was Great
Needed an electrician to help me replace a thermostat and give me a quote on installing pot lights in two rooms, as the light switches are not connected to anything. The service was great and he discovered be could fix one of my rooms to have the light switch connected to an existing outlet which was included in the hour of work I paid for. Good service, arrived on time, provided advice and was friendly and prompt. Would recommend.
Skilled & Efficient
AJ’s has done electrical work for us a few times — installing light fixtures and sorting out wiring problems. Today Jason changed the puck lights in our kitchen from halogen to LED. Skilled and efficient. Always professional and cost-conscious.

Highly Efficient & Professional
I was very impressed with the work AJ Electrical did for me. I really like their estimation services and hour the estimates include the estimated number of man-hours for your job. The work itself was highly efficient and professional. Their staff are also a pleasure to deal with (Darrian, Josh, and Kyle). I would highly recommend AJ Electrical and I will use them again in the future for future electrical jobs in my house.

Helpful & Explained Everything
Dealing with AJs was a great experience. From the moment of calling them about needing someone to install a 240V socket and talking to Darian. Darian was most helpful and explained everything and even managed to get our service done sooner then the 3 weeks it was originally scheduled for. Kyle the electrician was on time, professional and did the work quickly. Would recommend AJs to anyone needing Electrical work. Their price was reasonable, they were prompt and did the work well.
