This is for U.S. based electrical in a house built in 2001.
Currently I have a ceiling fan w/light on a 14/2 NM-B run to a single-pole light switch. When the switch is turned off, neither the fan nor light turn on. If switch is turned on, the light or fan can be activated based off pull chains on fan.
I want to add 4 recessed lights off the ceiling fan (which I will be replacing with a remote controlled fan), except I need the lights controlled by the switch, and the fan to be always on (as it will be controlled by the remote control, and not the switch).
I believe I need to pull 14/3 NM-B wire in place of the 14/2 to make this work. Please confirm. See diagram for proposed solution.
FYI: Wire B is going to a different room, Wire C is the wire I would switch out with 14/3.
Also, I left out Ground from the diagram to make it cleaner, I would obviously ground everything.
