|Plastic wire run made wiring simple|
I'm staying south through this coming summer hot season. Being on the East Coast, humidity is a real issue. Unless you want your rather small quarters to smell like a locker room, keeping the air moving is pretty important.

Installing a ceiling fan places that breeze in the best possible place, directly over the bed. The trick is with no wiring in place to run a 110V appliance, how do you make it work?

Another piece of tube ran the wire down the wall along the edge of the shirt closet. Plugging it into an existing outlet and the job was done. Pretty simple, the whole thing took about 30 minutes to accomplish.
Now I can sleep with the windows open, and when I do run the air conditioner it does a much better job of directing the cool air directly down at bed level. Much more comfortable sleeping and I can set the thermostat a little higher saving a few dollars in the process.

Well worth laying down on the floor to unbolt the chairs, even if I needed a crane to get back on my feet...Not really, but at my age the floor is a long ways down.
