Call in an electrician to turn off the power to the circuit that the ceiling fan will be connected to. It’s best to get an electrician to do this as they can easily find the proper fuse or circuit during the ceiling fan installation.
The Final Steps of Ceiling Fan Installation
The electrician will remove the existing light fixture as well as the electrical box. If the existing hole needs to be expanded, the electrician can do it at any time during the ceiling fan installation process. After the ceiling fan installation is complete, the electrician will also test it.
