How do I replace my old light fixture with a
new ceiling fan/light?

Plastic boxes are usually found supporting light
fixtures. A ceiling fan/light unit is probably
heavier than your light fixture. In addition, a
ceiling fan will have a slight “wobble” motion which creates
extra pressure on the screws and the plastic outlet box that
hold the fan in place. The Codes requires that the outlet
box for a ceiling fan unit be metal. The job of replacing a
plastic box with a metal box usually isn’t too complicated
or expensive. Give Ever-Ready Electric a call.
