The little church that I goto has high ceilings and has a couple of
very old ceiling fans. The ceiling fans are on speed-control
switches that look like light dimmers. The fans run too fast unless
the speed controls are all the way down, and in winter even that's
All the speed controllers that I looked at at Home Depot today had 3
or 4 speed settings; the ones in the church have infinite settings
like a light dimmer... Is it possible whoever install this use
light dimmers instead of fan controllers?
If these actually are fan motor controllers, is there an adjustment
somewhere to set the minimum fan speed? I'd like to be able to set
them to just barely turn in the winter just enough to keep the air
stirred up without creating a draft.
