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.
