FAQ

IS THE CEILING FAN WITH A REMOTE EQUIPPED WITH A WALL CONTROL?

 

Ceiling fans can be controlled in two primary ways: through a wall controller or a handheld remote control. When it comes to AC ceiling fans, they typically come with a wall controller as the standard control method, and the remote control is an additional feature that can be added optionally. It's important to note that you cannot use both the wall controller and the remote simultaneously on an AC fan. On the other hand, DC ceiling fans generally come with a remote control as the main means of control and do not offer a wall control option. However, in DC fan installations, a wall "isolating switch" is necessary for proper functionality.

 

WHEN IS A REMOTE CONTROL NEEDED FOR A CEILING FAN?

 

There are instances where a ceiling fan can only be installed with the use of a remote control. This typically occurs when it is not feasible to run wiring through the ceiling and down the wall for a wall control, which is common in apartments with an upper floor where accessing the ceiling wiring is challenging. In such scenarios, if there is an existing light fixture in the room, it can be replaced with a fan and light combination, allowing both functions to be controlled through a remote control.

 

Furthermore, a remote control becomes necessary when it is the only available option for the specific fan model you choose. This is particularly relevant for DC ceiling fans, as they are currently exclusively provided with remote controls. Therefore, the decision of whether to use a remote control is often determined during the selection of your ceiling fan.

 

WHEN ARE YOU BETTER OFF AVOIDING A CEILING FAN WITH A REMOTE CONTROL?

 

  • If you have a tight budget, it's worth considering that remote controls typically increase the cost of a fan by around $50-$100.
     
  • If the possibility of misplacing the remote concerns you, especially with young children or pets in the house, choosing a fan model that includes a cradle for the remote can help alleviate this worry.
     
  • For those who prefer to avoid the inconvenience of battery replacements, a wall control or pull cord offers a more convenient alternative.
     
  • When it comes to durability and maintenance, pull cords and wall controls are generally more robust and require less upkeep compared to remotes, unless they are exposed to external factors that could cause damage.
     
  • Individuals who are sensitive to noise should be aware that most remote controls emit a beep sound to indicate proper communication between the handset and receiver. The same sound is produced when the isolation switch is activated to indicate power supply to the receiver. However, some remotes may offer the option to disable this feature.
