Question Power for recessed Lighting

I am installing recessed lighting and want to pigtail power off of (2) fans. Is this okay so long as I do not exeed the Wattage of the circuit, or do I need an electrician to run a new lighting circuit?

No problem as long as you don't exceed the rating of the circuit. 15A breaker shouldn't exceed 1440 watts.

Nothing says you can't have lights and fans on the same circuit. A ceiling fan, without a light, only uses about 65 watts, even on high.
