6. How do
I install a ceiling fan?
Begin by turning off your power source to the room that you’ll be installing the ceiling fan. Most likely this will be your attic, so you can turn off the breaker that leads to that specific area. After turning off the breaker, you should remove the cover and then set it aside for the time being. Next, you need to pull down the existing wires and disconnect them from the breaker.
