That depends on what you expect to happen.
Do you want the existing switch to control the new fans?
Are you replacing the light with a fan or adding the fans?
Do the fans have lights? Do you want to control the lights separate from the fan with a switch.
Do you want both fans controled by the same switch or do you want separate switches for each fan/light? Or no switches at all for the fans/lights?
Do you know if power comes into the porch light or the switch for the porch light?
Can you get a new cable in the porch light? the porch light switch?
