Hand-Held Remote Control Ceiling Fans Are Convenient
Remote control ceiling fans operate similarly to remote-controlled televisions. Using a handheld device, homeowners can adjust the fan speed, the direction in which the blades rotate, and the degree of lighting. Hand-held remote controls have gained popularity and manufacturers like Hunter remote control ceiling fans include the devices as a standard fan component. Some ceiling fan remotes offer advanced settings like automatically dimming lights and adjusting speed after a certain time frame. Remote controlled fans are available in a range of styles and finishes for indoor and outdoor applications.
There are many advantages to using a remote controlled ceiling fan. Whether lying in bed or working on a project on the other side of the room, users can easily adjust a fan’s speed and using the remote control without getting up or leaving their workspace. Using a remote control is a convenient alternative to using a standard pull-chain, which may be difficult for some users to reach and pull.
Installing remote control ceiling fans is as easy as mounting traditional ceiling fans with an additional step. When installing a remote controlled fan, the signal receiver must be installed and wired into the fan canopy. However, this added step it not any more difficult than wiring the ceiling fan to the electrical grid. Homeowners should confirm they have the appropriate batteries to power the remote. Once the remote is powered, they should test the speed, reverse, and lighting functions.
