Wiring a ceiling fan may appear to be a difficult task. The task varies depending on the fan you're installing and how you want it to work. Most ceiling fans take only a few tools and some knowledge of the ceiling wiring to install. It's possible that your duty is to wire a ceiling fan with lights controlled by a single switch or to install a fan in a room without a switch. Make sure all electrical circuit breakers associated with the wiring are switched off before you begin. Consult an electrician if necessary to check that your breaker box and electrical switches are up to code. Make sure the ends of your wires are stripped to reveal the copper.
