This one falls into the category of a medium-sized job. If you have some intermediate DIY skills and know your way around a toolbox, then you should be able to install a simple overheard light or ceiling fan. If you're not comfortable with the task, it's a fairly easy job for a handyman, as long as there's existing wiring. If not, you'll want to put in a call to your electrician.
