Ceiling Fan install prep before installing drop ceiling

Post by talmech » Fri Nov 01, 2019 10:42 am

Hello,

Love the videos you post. I've learned alot. I'm going to move a ceiling fan we no longer want in our master bedroom and use it in a bedroom in my basement. I'm planning on doing a drop ceiling in my basement. What ceiling fan mount boxes are out there for this type of installation? Thanks.

Ceiling fans require a ceiling fan rated box (to accommodate the weight of the fan).
For a suspended ceiling, you would need something like this to properly support the weight.

A bit pricey on amazon, but shop around. As long as it's fan rated, you're good.
