Hi Guys,

Hopefully you can help me... I have a large master bedroom rectangular in shape and the builder only installed a spot for a ceiling light fixture in one end of the room. Of course I put my bed on the OPPOSITE side of the room (it looked better with the flow of the space) but have to run a small standing fan at night to keep it cool enough. I'd love to be able to install a ceiling fan above my bed to not only keep the area cool and well let, but I think it will be symmetrical and visually appealing as well. Is the process of installing a light fixture incredibly expensive? Where can I go to get a quote that's not going to rip me off? I know Home Depot installs fans but I don't know if they do the wiring and stuff too for a "new ceiling fixture." Like i said, there is one pre-existing light fixture in the room approximtely 15 feet from where I want to install a 2nd fixture. Any help/previous experience with this would be great! I'm trying to decide if it's worth the hassle and the money to do this!

There's a licensed electrician that advertises on Craigslist. When I get done replacing the roof on my patio cover I'm thinking of hiring him to run some conduit under my patio cover so I can have a ceiling fan outside.

I would not let an unlicensed electrician do this work. If there is a problem and your house burns down, and the insurance investigators discover work not done to code - well, you might have a big problem on your hands.
