After getting through a heat wave this weekend I've decided it's time to look at getting a ceiling fan for our bedroom. Right now there is just a simple light fixture. When I talked to my dad about it, he had some comments that made me realize it's not a straight swap. My house is year 1922 btw. 1. He said I have to install a new box in the ceiling to support the fan/light weight. This would require access from above. The attic has wood floor boards, but I'd hate to pull a few up if I can help it. Is there anything else I can safely do to keep the same box? A few videos mentioned using a brace with the current light box? Would finding a "lighter" fan/light be helpful? 2. He said not to reuse the wiring. I'm actually not sure if the wiring is original or newer. The ceiling light is modern. So if the wiring is more modern then I can reuse right? If original from the 20s I need to rewire from the switch? I would hire and electrician then for all this then, but if I can get away with doing this all myself that would be great.
