You can install a ceiling fan yourself, although you will need to get a permit for the installation. It is recommended that you have an electrician install your ceiling fan if you are not familiar with electrical code, lack the tools or are not comfortable with electrical work. Installing a ceiling fan is more complex than other installations because it not only requires new wiring, it will also require a brace in order to support the weight of the fan.
