A Kichler ceiling fan light kit is a versatile option to keep you cool, as well as lighting your home. Light kits can generally be easily installed. You can try your hand at installation first, and if you don’t feel comfortable, hiring an electrician is the next best step. Try to line up a friend or family member to hold the fan while you’re working on it ahead of time. If you have the manual that came with your fan, it may have some details as to which wire colors you need to work with in order to connect the light kit to your existing fan.
Generally, these days most ceiling fans come with a light kit pre-installed so you don’t need to go down this road however.
A ceiling fan light kit can impact utility bills, because keeping other lights on when this ceiling fan is in operation mode is not necessary. You can also save more money by purchasing LED bulbs for the ceiling fan instead of more conventional bulbs. It provides 80% less heat than traditional lights, and LED bulbs last much longer.
