I have 1 light switch that controls a fan/light and a pair of recessed lights across the room. I want to separate them and add another switch next to the existing one. Where do I start?
Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
You start by determining where the circuit is fed.
For example, is it fed from the switch, the fan/light, or one of the recessed lights.
That will determine how you go about adding another switch.
