Two Ceiling fans - 3 way light

I currently have two ceiling fans with light kits installed and operating. The fans are controlled from one switch and the lights can be turned on/off (controlled) by two switches -- 1 in kitchen and 1 in bedroom.

I am going to replace the existing units with two new fans with new light kits.

My question is can anyone provide diagram - advice on what I will be seeing when I remove the old fans and how to make connections to the new ones ?

I haven't bought the new fans/light kits yet.


Thanks.

No, only guesses. There are multiple ways to wire a circuit to give the same result.

So, a black going to the two fans from one switch and then reds going to the blue from 2 switches would be the normal ?

That sounds right, just remove 1 fan/ light at a time ,no need to remove or open any splices that the fan/ light isn't currently connected to.new fan wire to where the current fan is now connected likewise for the light.
