Affordable Ceiling Fan Installation
If you think Australian summers have been getting hotter… you’d be right.
Living in Queensland means enjoying year-round enjoyable weather (sorry rest of Australia), but that also means those sticky, hot summer days require a quick and affordable solution. Whether you’re looking to drop off to sleep with ease, work from home in comfort, or simply enjoy time in your own space, ceiling fan installation is the ideal solution.
Able to bring the temperature of a room down by up to 4 degrees, these energy efficient and cost-effective additions to your Sunshine Coast home are growing in popularity with savvy homeowners looking for affordability and comfort. At DYFA Electrical, we have extensive experience in installing ceiling fans including the correct height and distance from walls, strategic placement to maximise air flow, and proper wiring to ensure long-term safety.
Our licensed Sunshine Coast electricians can safely install ceiling fans in any room of your home. Choose from a wide range of styles and designs to meet the needs of your space. So, isn’t it time you cooled down without watching your power bill heat up?

Why choose ceiling fans over A/C?
Choosing between air conditioning and ceiling fans is an age-old debate in Sunshine Coast homes. If you’re deciding between these two options, it helps to know about the cost. Running an average residential A/C system will set you back between 33c and 40c every hour. Compare this to the running costs of a ceiling fan and you’ll pay just 2c per hour. That’s a significant saving and keeps more money in your pocket.
At the same time, many homeowners are opting for ceiling fans as well as A/C. At DYFA Electrical, we can help customize a ceiling fan service that helps you get more from your air conditioning. Installing ceiling fans helps move chilled air around the room for additional comfort, lower your energy bills by reducing the workload of your A/C, and providing a cost-effective alternative on those days when you just need a little breeze on your face.
What type of ceiling fans do you install?
Ceiling fans come in all sizes, types and blade counts, so there’s truly an option to suit your Sunshine Coast home as well as your personal style. Each with their own benefit and purpose, here are some of the most popular ceiling fan options we install.
Our skilled electricians are qualified to carry out any electrical repair or installation across the Sunshine Coast. Ask us today about our range of electrical services, including new ceiling fan installation or upgrading of existing ceiling fans.
Can I install ceiling fans on my own?
We don’t recommend installing ceiling fans by yourself. Qualified electricians are needed to meet Australian regulations that protect against injury and electrocution. At the same time, installing new fans is more than picking a spot, pulling out the ladder, and rolling up your sleeves.
Ceiling fans are attached to the, well… ceiling. These must be secured correctly to avoid injury, with proper wiring. Throw in the need to remove sections of your ceiling, secure a mounting box and bracket, not to mention remove any old fixtures, and it’s clear that ceiling fan installation is best left to the pros.
How much does it cost for ceiling fan installation?
Installing a ceiling fan is significantly cheaper than A/C installation. That said, how much you’ll pay will depend on the cost of the fan itself, the number of fans you wish to install, the style of the fan (e.g. whether it’s remote controlled or has built-in lighting), the ceiling height, and any extra factors like wiring or upgrading existing power circuits.
Most electricians in Australia charge by the hour, so you should expect to pay between $150 and $300 for ceiling fan installation, which includes parts and labour for a couple of hours. For more information, check out our price chart below.
