Wiring a Ceiling Fan For An Older Home
Question: I am installing a ceiling fan with NO WIRING TO THE CEILING. My house was built in 1955. The current wiring is to turn the on off switch to power all the outlets, this is a pain for alarm alarm clocks taped the on off switch to ON!!! What is the best way to wire the ceiling fan, and keep the outlet on all the time, or will I have to wire it with a NO SWITCH, Have to go up in the ATTIC to run the wires for ceiling fan down to the on off switch is, Hopefully I won’t tear up to much drywall to run the wiring, ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT. THANKS!
