    Does Ceiling Fan Size Matter? Spoiler Alert: Yes, Yes It Does

    A ceiling fan can add visual interest and drama to any room, tying the furnishings together and helping everything appear more finished. 

    Yet, it's important to keep scale in mind.

    Today, we're discussing how to silence a noisy ceiling fan, so you can get back to enjoying yours as intended!

    Check the Blades

    Is your ceiling fan making noise? 

    If so, check the fan blade connections.

    There are screws that connect the blades to the blade irons. If these come loose, they can create an aggravating, intermittent ticking sound. In the fan industry, this is known as a "blade tick".

    The same applies to the screws that connect the blades to the fan motor. If these become loose, a ticking noise can also occur.
