Hi,all -- I've been trying to find an answer for this, but (lacking
access to the NEC) cannot determine what the code is regarding switches
for ceiling fans. The electrician is pulling wire tomorrow, and I would
like to be a bit better informed before he/she shows up:
Does a standard ceiling fan installation (either just a fan or a
fan/light combination) REQUIRE a wall switch installation? Or can I have
the circuit for the fans and control them via pull chains? We currently
have no ceiling fixtures in the rooms in question, only half-hot outlets.
(We have a tendency to turn on the fan and leave it running for, oh, ten
years or so and have no real need for a switch.)
Thanks for any info!
