Is changing a ceiling fan easy?

Installing a ceiling fan is relatively simple, especially if the space above is accessible from an attic. The fan connects to the existing cable from the old light. However—and this is very important—you cant just hang the fan from the existing electrical box.

What is the blue wire for?

Blue and yellow wires are most commonly found in commercial buildings and are used as the live wires pulled through a conduit.
