Can a ceiling fan be installed without its own wall switch? In other words, can the fan be tied in to the electrical wiring for a room's light fixtures?
Yes it can be installed on the same circuit as the existing light and switch. If you purchase a fan with a remote, you will be able to shut off the fan while the other lights are still off.

A ceiling fan does not need to be installed on a dedicated switch. More importantly though, it needs to be installed on a fan rated box with the proper supports.

Hello everybody! I am glad to attend this forum :). I didn't have the same problem as you, but I still want to share my experience on the same subject. I had air conditioning, which was just in excellent condition and worked at the highest level. Only there was one problem. He stopped cooling the room. It was protho painful, because the street was just crazy heat. It was urgent to repair it, but I do not trust any pseudo-masters. I believe in the proverb: "If you want to do something well, do it yourself." Therefore, I began to search for the necessary information on the Internet, which can help me fix my device. And I came across an article about Thermostat Wiring Colors. It helped me and I restored it. Try it, maybe this will help control your air conditioning)
