ceiling fan box capacity
I ordered a fan that I LOVE!
The only problem is...that during construction we hadn't picked it out yet and got a standard ceiling fan box for the electrical. I'm concerned about the weight that the box can hold. The fan is 40lbs!!!
We got a Carlon Blue 1-gang ceiling fan box and it says it can hold a light fixture up to 50 lbs but I am concerned about the fan movement adding extra weight. Do I need to find a new fan or is there a way we can reinforce this to hold the weight?
Disclaimer: I will be passing this information on to my husband and team who know how to do this. I am just trying to get more opinions since they are worried about it and I feel like I need to find out a bit more before we give up our new fan.
