No ceiling fans. Maybe 1 plug in fan if it gets too hot in there in the summer. I don't know what you would actually call these light fixtures. It's just a single socket receptacle that you screw a lightbulb into (like you might see in the closet of an old house). I just plan to run several of them along the same wire controlled by a single light switch.
I think the wire is connected to a ceiling light downstairs, so I am taking that into consideration.
I may just go with a couple track lights, not sure yet.
I just didn't want to install 10 lights in the attic to find out that it would keep tripping the breaker. They might be on for 3 to 4 hours at a time, as I am setting up a small workshop in there. Any electrical needs other than the lights would be on a seperate outlet.
Thanks for the help!
