Question

our fan and light in the bathroom use the same switch(both go on and off together). We would like to split the two so they work seperately.

hello rita,
im assuming that this is a fan light combo, and power is in switch box. this can be done but u will have to add new wire to the fan/light. get your self some 3 wire romex of same size u currentily have and a stacked switch. take the 3 wire from switch to light(switch leg). then hook the red of switch leg to 1 switch black of switch leg to other switch and white of switch leg to the white of power, then hook the black of power to the common on stacked switch.
