Yws it is possible.Check on the fan before changing anything, there should be a maximum wattage sticker. Do not go any bringter than the max, it is there for a reason. If your plans are to install incondesent light system, be aware. that, bulb puts out much more heat,

They actually have bulbs that are just made for ceiling fans, but can also be used for other things as well. You can get these bulbs at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. You might bring the bulbs with you if possible as sometimes it can get confusing after looking at twenty different designs. Hope this helps.

Ceiling fans not bright enough

In this case, probably not. The issue is heat, and the limit is space. One suggestion, new fluorescent bulbs give more light with less wattage. If you can find one that will physically fit in the space, this might get you more light.

Change light

i just put fluorescent lights in two of these fans. it just takes a little fabbing and its done and simple.

Go to home depot and buy a lithonia lighting 11" low profile round light model# FM22 ACLR LP.

rotozip or file
wire strippers
crescent wrench

you can take the neons and the power supply off of the fan base but be sure to save all the screws, you will need them later. the ballast in the light will fit in the chrome base on the fan but you have to shave one of the bolt holes down first for it to fit (be sure not to cut the ones that the bolts go through). you do not need the green ground wire from the new light.

Next drill out the rivets from the bulb brackets on the new light base. now you can take the bulb and place it on the fan backing plate and get your bulb brackets and mark where you will mount them. then drill holes for them (but make sure the holes are for the screws that you saved earlier because you will reuse them for the light brackets). Be sure to mount the bulb as center as possible.

now once you have fabbed everything put the assembly up to the fan and pull the wires down through the ballast and through the center tassle bolt and wire it up. the bulb is an 8" bulb and thats all that will fit. home depot sells phillips 8" bulbs in several different brightnesess.

this picture was taken on my phone so it isn't that great. but the light really brightens it up.

Sun burns out the photocell in lights. Hampton Bay uses cheap components in their Fans and Lighting all made in China for a fraction of what you paid. Dont waste time calling they dont care.
Best a good set and dont buy them from Home Depot, Hampton Bays primary retailer, sort of voting with your wallet.

Hampton Bay Ponte Vecchio ceiling fan light flickers

Try swapping out the bulbs and see what happens. There are bulbs made specifically for ceiling fans that have heavier duty filaments in the bulbs, or you could use compact fluorescents. The warning about using a solid state control was referring to using a solid state dimmer at the wall switch.
