I removed a ceiliing fan in a room that it should never have been in.
The ceiling is too low in that room for such a hefty fan;And it made a
huge difference. Now the ceiling looks high and the room bigger.
Anyway, there was no electrical box for that fan. The romex just ran
through the drywall. The new light fixture I installed talked about
attaching it to the box, blah, blah, blah.
I was able to install it just fine without a box as the ceiling fan
had been. Is this going to bite me in the ass later? Do I REALLY need
a box for that? I know, I know ...code. but beyond that?
I snugged everything up real good and pushed the romex part up in the
ceiling so the only thing extending down is the seperated wires from
the romex. I'm thinking, this is how it would be anyway, if there was
a box. TIA
