Ceiling Fan Installation, Repair and Servicing in Brisbane

Martel Electrical provides ceiling fan installation, repair and servicing throughout Brisbane.

Your ceiling fans work hard, especially during summer. When you leave your fans running all day, it makes sense that they need repairs from time to time.

We’re equipped to repair all common problems and ensure that your ceiling fan works like new.

We provide ceiling fan repairs for issues like:

  • Wobbly fan blades
  • Flickering lights
  • Dead motors
  • Noisy fan blades
  • Noisy fan bearings
  • Faulty remote controls

Ceiling fans are simple appliances. They can usually be repaired with a few replacement parts, avoiding the need to replace the unit.

Get in touch if you notice any of the above issues. Our electricians in Brisbane's northside can assess your ceiling fan and provide a quote for repairs. If it’s an old fan, or if the issue can’t be fixed, we’re happy to discuss replacement options.

Choosing a Ceiling Fan

We’ll Help Choose the Right Ceiling Fan to Install

The right ceiling fan will be quiet, efficient and affordable, and Martel Electrical can help you choose the best model for your home.
Ceiling fans aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution. They come in dozens of sizes, blade configurations and power levels. We’ll make sure you get the best bang for your buck by working with you to figure out the following:

  • Location of the fan
  • Budget requirements
  • Material and colour preferences
  • Lighting requirements in the space
  • Optimal size requirements for the space
  • Remote control preferences
  • AC vs DC fans

AC fans run on standard mains power. They’re affordable, efficient and easy to install. DC fans operate on Direct Current. While they cost more upfront, they’re substantially more energy-efficient than AC fans, and have become incredibly popular in Brisbane.

Martel Electrical has access to hundreds of ceiling fans from manufacturers we know and trust. Whatever your requirements, we can find a ceiling fan that suits your home, budget and Brisbane’s climate.


What size ceiling fan do I need?

The size of your ceiling fans depends on the size of the room they’re being installed in:

  • Small rooms 3m x 3m (9m2) – 122cm ceiling fan
  • Medium rooms 4m x 4m (16m2) – 132cm ceiling fan
  • Large rooms 5m x 5m (25m2) – 152cm ceiling fan

Fan size is not the only factor to consider during ceiling fan installation. We’ll also assess the layout of the room, the placement of doors and windows, lighting requirements and your budget.

How can a ceiling fan help me reduce energy costs?

Standard AC ceiling fans typically only consume about 20W-80W of electricity, the same amount as a light bulb. Modern DC ceiling fans can consume as little as 10W-20W of power. This is substantially less than a split system air conditioner, which can consume 2,200W or more.

While ceiling fans are less effective at cooling a space than air conditioners, they’re highly effective at generating air flow and keeping indoor temperatures comfortable. Ceiling fans can also be used in conjunction with your air conditioners to improve distribution of conditioned air.

Are ceiling fans suitable for outdoor use?

Yes! Ceiling fans can be installed in outdoor spaces, like under patio roofs.

We offer ceiling fan installation Brisbane wide. We’ve installed ceiling fans in hundreds of outdoor spaces. If you want to install a fan outside, you’ll need to choose a unit that’s rated for external applications. These types of ceiling fans have durable, non-corrosive blades and water-tight seals that prevent them from becoming damaged due to rain.


How much do ceiling fans cost to operate?

It costs about $0.57 per hour to run an AC ceiling fan at low speed according to Canstar. This equates to $410 per summer if you run your fan for 8 hours per day. Energy-efficient DC ceiling fans can cost as little as $0.17 per hour to run, which works out to be $122 per summer.

While DC ceiling fans cost more upfront, they provide substantial savings in the long run. Talk with our team to find out which type of ceiling fan is better for your budget!


What is a reversible feature?

The reversible feature on ceiling fans changes the direction the blades rotate. This causes the fan to draw up cool air from the room and circulate the warm air that’s close to the ceiling. Reversible features are sometimes called “winter mode” because they’re ideal for cooler weather.

With Brisbane’s mild winters, we recommend installing ceiling fans with a winter mode. They’re an effective way to manage cold weather while also providing air flow.

What is the difference between 3, 4 or 5 blade fans?

The number of blades on a ceiling fan changes how much air it moves and how noisy the fan is. Ceiling fans with 3 blades move more air, but they are noisier than fans with 4 or 5 blades. Having 4 or 5 blades makes the fan quiet, but it also places strain on the motor, which can shorten the fan’s life.

Choosing between 3, 4 or 5 blades is a matter of compromise. Fans with 3 blades are ideal in outdoor areas or large rooms that need lots of air flow. You can also reduce the noise by choosing a fan with timber blades.

As part of our ceiling fan installation services, our Brisbane team will discuss your requirements and help choose the best fan for your space. We’re a Beacon Lighting Preferred Electrician, so we have access to 3, 4 and 5 bladed fans from a range of manufacturers.
