    I am trying to install a new ceiling fan in a spot that was previously occupied by a regular ceiling light, which was controlled by two light switches. The house was built in 1900 and I am not sure if or when the wiring was updated. The problem that I am having is that I am seeing 6 wires...

    Hi, just wondering if anyone here knows about how much it costs to install a 36 inch ceiling fan? The previous fan broke and was taken down so I just need someone to put the new one in. I also have a more complex job in another room. I need an electrician to cut a hole in the ceiling for a 44...
