Help! I'm putting a ceiling fan in an older house and the box has only 4 wires in it(2 white connected and 2 black connected). My question is what's hot and what's not.

hello joeman,
chanses r that the blacks r the hot wires, its unusual 4 the white wires to be hot except under sertion conditions. from the info in your post i can not say 4 sure wheather the black is the hot 4 sertion but its normaly the hot wire, u can test the wires with an induction tester which will tell u which is the hot. induction testers r avabel at walmart here 4 a resionabel price.
