Think about how remote controls might fit—or not fit—with your lifestyle. A remote control can enhance the performance and operating flexibility of your fan, since many remotes include one-touch multiple speed settings, instant fan “off” operation and full-range light dimming. Pretty fun to do from the comfort of your favorite chair (or wherever you are from up to 30 feet away from the fan). Installing a ceiling fan and remote control is so easy—absolutely a do-it-yourselfer—and doesn’t require any professional wiring. Remote control kits include a handheld transmitter for sending commands to the fan and a receiver you’ll either conceal inside the fan canopy or mount just beneath the ceiling.
All remotes can be mounted on the wall. Most remote control fans can be controlled in conjunction with a wall control as well. See control accessories for optional wall controls.
