How to Wire Wall Switches for Ceiling Fans
[ad#block]Electrical Question: Hi, I am trying to wire 2 ceiling fans. One has power starting at the switch box and has two 12/2 wires running to the fixture one for the light and one for the fan.
The other has power at the ceiling fixture with the extra two 12/2 wires running to the switch box.
I am wanting to know how to properly wire this the right way and not burn my house down.
Any help you could throw my way would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Andy
