When my house was built, I had 3 Emerson ceiling fans installed in
various rooms ranging from 13 to 17 ft ceiling. Having to make too many
decisions to a shorttime, I forgot to choose/ask for fans with speed
control on wall or remote controls. The wall switch only controls on-off.
They all have a pull-chain; not sure if they are for light kit or speed
control, never tried it.
Will those Hunter/Leviton fan speed controls works by replacing the
on-off switch? If they do, how does this speed control impact the speed
control by the pull chain (if it was indeed used as such)?
I have heard from various people that I need to get to the top of the
fan in order to install speed control/remote control, I am not about to
put up scaffolding in order to do that.
