I thought I already posted this? But can’t see it.
Can you control a ceiling fan with a dimmer switch? We have 24 foot great room ceiling wit fans. But the string to control speed is 20 feet in the air.
BB, YOU CAN USE A FAN SPEED CONTROL, NOT A LIGHT DIMMER. IF THERE IS A LIGHT KIT ON THE FAN, THE FAN WOULD HAVE TO BE PREWIRED WITH A SEPARATE SWITCH. A LIGHT DIMMER WILL BURN UP A FAN MOTOR OVER A PERIOD OF TIME AND CAUSE A HELLAVA HUM.
One of the reasons I went with a DC motor fan was I only had one switch/wires. I had a hunter AC 54 inch fan but really didn't put out enough air. New DC fan puts out twice the CFM at the same wattage.
