Ceiling fans make a great addition to any home. Adding a ceiling fan to a room can add both beauty and comfort to a room. Before starting this electrical installation, for safety, turn the power off to the circuit that you will be working on. Check this with a tester to double-check yourself.

In order to mount the ceiling fan support housing, first, remove the two screws from the ceiling box. These are usually 8-32 screws and about 3/4" long. Line the housing holes up with the screw holes in the box and replace the 8-32 screws. Tighten them securely and for an added safety measure, install lock washers. Test your connection to be sure it doesn't move around because of a loose box connection.
