Installing a ceiling fan
Most experienced homeowners can install a ceiling fan where there is already an existing fixture. An existing ceiling light fixture can be used to install a fan, but the mounting bracket must support the weight. Follow all the instructions that come with the assembly.
You may need a helper to support the fixture while you’re working.
Ceiling fans blades should be balanced for the best operation.
Replace light switch
Replacing a light switch is normally a simple DIY electrical repair. Switches come in different styles: single-pole, double-pole, three-way and four-way are common types. You must replace the existing switch with the correct type for the circuit to work correctly. Use caution when installing a dimmer switch. This type of switch can overheat, and a dimmer needs the correct bulb.
Install light fixture
Installing replacement light fixtures is another common DIY project. Again, for successful completion, the wiring should already be available for the fixture. Make sure that the mounting brackets can support the fixture’s weight. After installing a ceiling light, check that the fixture doesn’t produce excess heat on the installation area.
The importance of shutting the power off before working on an electrical circuit cannot be stressed enough. Your safety and your home are more important than saving money. Regardless of the type of project, you should consider hiring an electrician for all work around the home.
