A ceiling fan installation is when a ceiling fan is added to a space on the ceiling that is empty with no existing fan, while a relocation is when an existing fan is moved to a different location on the ceiling or wall.
Condition of the walls and distance from the nearest power source will be the biggest cost factors when it comes to labor. Working on exposed walls without drywall or insulation takes less time and work for an electrician. Finished walls may require additional work and drywall repair, increasing the total project price. Having easy access to an attic space above where the fan will be installed also help significantly for an easier and faster install.

A ceiling fan replacement is necessary when there is a need for a repair to an existing fan that may no longer be operable. Replacements can also be necessary if the property owner has the need for a change in look, style or functionality of an outdated ceiling fan.
If there is no need for a repair diagnosis to confirm a broken fan, a simple replacement of a ceiling fan can be a minimal cost to the property owner.
There may be times where a property owner notices that a specific ceiling fan is not properly working. The issue at this point remains a mystery as the lack of power could be caused by faults at a light bulb, the switch controlling the fan, the ceiling fan fixture itself, or perhaps a more complex wiring issue.
This job description would fall under what licensed electricians consider a service call or "troubleshoot" that is billed on a time and material basis in order for a professional to come onsite, take apart fixtures or devices, and diagnose the true electrical issue.
Service call / troubleshoot rates vary in structure form one licensed electrician to the next. Consult Spotlight Energy on their latest repair rates in the Southern New Jersey area.
Today's National Electric Code requires any ceiling fan to have proper joist support within any home or business. This requires the installation of specialized brace support boxes in order to legally and safely complete this install. If no brace support already exists, there will be an added labor and material cost to the project on top of the ceiling fan install itself.
