Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to answer any of your electrical questions.
At the fan box, where the fan is mounted to, how many wires are there, and what colors are they?
It's an existing fan install. I don't have the fan itself apart.
You would need to take the canopy off of the fan to verify, but more than likely you will not be able to with what you currently have. Your best bet would be to buy a universal remote control, if you want to control them separately.
I see 2 new wires run into a new outlet box when they installed the fan. Each wire has a white, black and ground only.
Is this because they did not install a wire with a red, hot?
Exactly. Normally you would have a black red white, and ground in one romex for switching individually.
How do you install a universal remote?
Give me a few minutes and I will get something together for you, to make it simple.
