Even as no longer being able to re-run the cable among the two light switches appears like a trouble, it truely is not. Positive fan velocity controller/dimmer combinations that rely upon a speaking cover module, along with the lutron ma-lfq35m cm-l300fq1 combination with a lutron ma-alfq35 accent manipulate, can provide you with 3-manner manipulate of each the fan and the lights with handiest a unmarried additional 14/2 run past what you've got planned: particularly, from the new fan container to the present mild boxes.
I would really like to have in every room one ceiling fan with the fan and light controls separate. That is a common request and easy to find plans for. What i would like to do similarly is to have three way switches for each the fan and mild. Consider a protracted room with the fan within the middle and at every end a two gang box with one transfer for fan and one for the mild. This is not easy to locate plans for.
You'd twine the ma-lfq35m at your present line-side switch container with an "old style" 3-manner loop to the ma-alfq35 at the existing load-aspect container. From the line-side switch box, you would run a new 14/2 to the fan location, in which the cm-l300fq1 is mounted. The light output from the cm-l300fq1 might then be tapped with every other 14/2 that feeds the present mild furnishings. This will require forsaking the existing 14/2 from the prevailing load-aspect switch field to the existing mild furnishings, however this is a small charge to pay to get full multi-way, multi-speed manipulate of the fan as well as multi-way light dimming.
That is extra hard work than your different plan, to connect the fan light directly to the present mild, however it is going to be lots less perplexing to any future electrician or handyman who has to deal with the circuit.
