Swag Ceiling Fan in AZ Room

We just moved into a retirement community. Our old house was built in 2014 and our new house in 1979. We have an Arizona room that needs ceiling fans. It looks to be previously set up for two swag style ceiling fans.

Can any fan be converted to a swag style plug?

I have never heard of a swag fan. I can't imagine how it would spin without swinging or winding up the swag chain.

Cannot say as I have not seen all the fans that are out there.

I guess it all depends on your DIY skill level.

It just occurred to me you probably mean fan with drop rod. No a hugger style fan can not be converted to a drop rod style. A drop rod style can be lowered with a longer drop rod.

Yes. Mount the fan unit on the ceiling in the normal fashion. Connect the wire leads in the fan unit to a sufficiently long piece of lamp cord. Run the cord through an appropriate sized hole drilled in the canopy using a strain relief grommet and add a plug. Hang the cord along the ceiling in the same fashion as for any other swag light fixture so as to reach a wall receptacle.

Note: The fan needs the usual sufficiently sturdy mount. The significamce of the swag is to not need to string a circuit to the middle of the ceiling.
