Re: Buying and installing a ceiling fan - tips?
You need to make sure that the electrical box in the ceiling will support the fan. If not, there are replacement boxes and reinforcement methods to upgrade the box. From there, the instructions that come with the fan should be pretty clear on how to install and hook up wiring. Pay very close attention to how you remove the light fixture because the fan will likely go in exactly the same way.
