Lowe’s is an excellent place to go if you need a ceiling fan installed in your home. If purchasing it from them, they will install the product for no extra charge.

How much does Lowe’s ceiling fan installation cost?

If you want to install a ceiling fan, the cost will depend on if it’s going into an existing location or replacing one.

If Lowe’s is replacing an older model with a newer fan, it will require a lot less work and materials, meaning that the whole job will only cost around $100. Adding a fan in a place where there wasn’t any fixture in the past can mean a price closer to $250 due to added material costs.


It turns out that Lowe’s isn’t offering a free installation at this point, based on the comment made by one of our viewers. This is a current situation and it might change in the future, based on offers available in the store at some point or another.

Again, remember that these installation prices are only available if you don’t buy the fan from Lowe’s. Buying it from them will mean free installation (currently, the free installation offer isn’t available, but might become a real thing again in the future).

The prices listed above are merely averages. Expect to pay a lot more for more complex projects. For example, the range of ceiling fan projects at Lowe’s on one Porch.com project ranges from $100 to more than $2,000.

How to use the free Lowe’s installation

From time to time, Lowe’s has an active promotion that offers the installation of the ceiling fan for free if you buy the products from them. This process usually starts with you picking out a fan from their latest inventory. Once your new purchase is picked, an associate will set up an appointment and have you sign papers to confirm the installation time slot before leaving the store. The installation job will be done by a local company that is insured and licensed. They are approved to work in the name of Lowe’s, so you don’t have to worry about any of the details.

Is there any way to spend less?

If you’re in the market for a new ceiling fan, be sure to keep your eye on Lowe’s special promotions throughout the year. You never know what kind of deals they’ll offer. Check out their website for current offers and discounts before installing any fan yourself.

If you’re looking for the best ceiling fan prices, it pays to comparison shop. Compare other hardware stores and get at least three quotes before making your purchase decision.
Many local electricians will let you buy your fan from wherever you want and install it for a lot less than you wonțt end up spending if working through Lowe’s.

Overall, if you’re set on a model that is the cheapest at Lowe’s or is only available in their stores, then having them install it would be the cheapest option, as usually, the installation would be cheap, if not free. If instead, you find a cheaper model that you like somewhere else, then you’ll usually get a better price if you buy it from another store and just look locally for someone to install it for a small fee.

    Your information is FAR out of date, at least for my Lowe’s. Instead of free installation, they now require you to pay an estimate fee up-front, then an installer comes out and looks at the job — then they give you a price. The lowest possible price is $99, but only for selected fans or light fixtures.
