Ceiling Fan Surface Mount to Drop Mount

I moved a fan from a house we just bought to one we are selling. I want to convert a surface mount to a drop mount, as ceiling is higher. Can I buy a kit to do this. I susupect I would have to add extensions to the wires.

Ceiling Fan Surface Mount to Drop Mount

You may be able to purchase a drop rod kit for your fan. Not all fans are convertible to drop installation.
