I don't think "receptacle" is the right word. But regardless, I bought a 1920's house that appeared to have had all the knob & tube replaced (we went through inspection just fine). But I am trying to install a ceiling fan and have encountered a situation that I'm not sure about. I'm thinking I'll need an electrician for this one, but have a couple of questions first:
1. Is this active knob & tube?
2. Is it possible to remove this metal fixture myself (I can't seem to get it unscrewed) and install the ceiling fan like I would with an updated electrical situation?
3. Will an electrician need to actually replace this wiring in order to have a ceiling fan in this location.
I've attached a picture. Thank you for any information you can toss my way!
