Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Thebiggest problem with fan installations on existing ceiling boxes is that the box isn't rated or approved for other Ghana light fixture. The best suggestion for that installation would be to use screws uptown and into the joist, thus having an adequate fasteningnot depending on the box. Might consider a ceiling hugger fan, bigger basemore likely tone able to joist attach.
The circuit will handle the fan/light no problem.
You're welcome. No problem with follow up questions.
