A downrod helps in situations where you want to extend the height of your fan. In other words, if you would like to add additional room to between where the fan is and the floor. This is useful in situations with high ceilings. From time to time, you’ll also need to replace a downrod. Downrod replacements are utilized when a downrod breaks or snaps. The downrod can snap for the following reasons:
- Blade balancing issues that cause the fan to wobble and eventually the downrod may become loose,
- Someone grabbing onto the ceiling fan and causing the downrod to snap from the ceiling, Or, even a pet! Like a cat.
- Usage over time with no maintenance (could take 15-20 years but fan may start to wobble from age),
- Other miscellaneous reasons.
