The electrician came by and based on the wiring in my home, which isn't in a convenient spot, the work will require drilling laterally through a ceiling runner. That will require punching a hole in my ceiling to drill the hole and fish a power line then hiring a drywaller to patch and paint the ceiling. The total estimate comes to about $575, almost twice the price of the actual fan. Is it worth it?

My living room faces west which means summer afternoons can get pretty toasty. In an effort to save money, I started keeping my A/C set between 78 and 80 last year and I open the windows at night when it's cooler. But sometimes those hot afternoons are a little too much to bear.
For the last couple years I've been thinking of getting a ceiling fan to circulate air and keep me cool but I've found it a little tougher than expected because I have a lot of requirements:
After that I went to Lowe's where I was disappointed because they had mostly small room fans that only supported candle bulbs. On the other hand, they still offer ceiling fan installations so I inquired about that only to find out they won't conduct installations unless there is already a load bearing power receptacle installed.
Unfortunately, my vaulted ceiling has no receptacle and probably no electric lines either, so my final option was to call an electrician to do a full installation job. I managed to find Al's Accurate Electric which offers free quotes. I called them and got to speak to Al who seemed quite friendly so hopefully things will work out with him when he comes to give me a quote Saturday at 8AM.
