I have a three prong on order and may swap it as this fan is for my fiancé and I’d like the piece of mind. I don’t really see it adding much real world safety though because of the GFCI already in play. I really appreciate the sanity check from you all.
Beautiful fans Alex! That is the exact point I was going to use for ground if I do add one.

Thank you everyone! Great bunch of people here on AFCA!
There's a video on YouTube from a YouTube called Technology Connections and the guy on there discusses the US electrical system and compares it to the European electrical system and he actually makes many good points in there including the one I make about how the Europeans are way too overly cautious about their electrical appliances to the point that they switch every outlet that they know an appliance like a toaster or coffee maker is going to be plugged into rather than just unplugging it.If you want a link to the video I can post it here.

Hi Levi,

Thank you, If you provide the link I’ll definitely check it out.
