    My husband and I just installed a new ceiling fan where a light fixture used to be in our bedroom. Our house was built in 1926 but was rewired in 2010 I believe.

    Adding in a new ceiling fan to a builder wired box and want to be sure I'm doing it the correct way. Currently it's just a single light fixture to a single switch and I want to go to a ceiling fan / light combo with two separate switches. In the fan box (which is one of the bracketed fan...

    Is there a way to replace the standard light fixture in a room with a ceiling fan/light and control both independably from the wall switch? I know to do it correctly would require running additional wire to the fixture from the wall switch but wondered if there was another way. A dimmer for...
