How to Control a Ceiling Fan Without a Wall Switch

By: Danny Lipford

There isn’t a wall switch for my ceiling fan, and I’m too short to reach the pull chain. Is there another way I could turn the fan on and off? – Cynthia

Hi Cynthia,

Instead of a wall switch, consider installing a wireless remote that will allow you to control your paddle fan at the touch of a button. Remotes for fans are available as a kit you can add to your existing fan, or you can purchase a new fan that comes with a remote control.

Be sure to turn off the circuit breaker to the fan, and test it to be sure it’s not still hot before working on it.

Good luck with your project,

Danny
