Visit Lighting Expo for all you may need at one of the three showrooms or online at Types and Applications of Fan Controls

Generally, fan controls are designed to control fans up to a range of 30 ft, and change to 3 speeds for versatility. They typically use a battery. Fan controls control fan speed and include a dimmable option for those fans that have light kits. Fan Controls are simple to install and easy to use.

Fan controls are available as a hand held device or as a control that would go into the wall similar to a light switch would. Most handheld remotes are universal and can work on a variety of brand fans. A remote control such as this provides a simple solution to control a fans' speed and the fan light. Fan controls are generally slim, and have an ergonomic looking design. A wall mount fan control plate can be installed anywhere in the room you want. It features a full range of options such as dimming, by holding down the light button or changing speeds, with the press of a button.

Installation of a Handheld Fan Control

The handheld remote control is simple to prepare for use and easy to use. You should follow the manufacturer's installation guide, but generally, you would wire the receiver inside the fans' ceiling canopy and use the wireless control within a certain distance. The remote control itself is battery operated.

Installation of a Wall Mount Fan Control

To install a wall mount fan control plate, you simply wire the wall mount plate into the wall. This will require you to wire the receiver inside the fans' canopy. The panel will need to be wired as well.

Tips for Purchasing a Fan Control

While there are some fan controls that are universal and will work with multiple fans, it is very important to remember, some of the remote and wall controls sold as accessories work with only specific ceiling fan brands. Remember this and check while making your purchase. Many fan controls allow you to pair a single remote with multiple fans, for example in a room with multiple fans you can control them all.

Because most ceiling fans have a 3-speed (slow/medium/fast) switch, most controls also have this set-up. Therefore you should choose a wall control that operates each function separately and can operate at each speed.
