Question about AMS Lutron SFSQ-LF Skylark Slide-to-Off Fan Speed Control and Single-Pole Light
In my studio I have a single switch that turns on three ceiling fans w/lights. I would like to install a switch that will control the fan speed and the lights. Not worried about controlling each one separately, want to control them as if they are one fan and one light kit. Do I need a special switch to control them as one unit? Is it difficult to install? What are the things that I should be aware of?
anyway, that all the lights work together makes it simpler
most fanlights, updated by homeowners replace a lamp only unit, with on/off provided at the switch, and cable pulls on the unit to change speed direction of the fan
my favorite is paired dimmer switches, giving control separately of light and fan speed, fan direction still changes on the pull switch, requires 3 wires in the switch box, (power and 2 switched lines), to the lamp connector and fan motor connector, any sparky can pull the extra line with fishtape along the existing cable run. easy peasey.
Really good electricians pull three wire to light circuits, when the house is built or reno-ed. but you know how oftern that is gonna happen, 3 wire costs 3c more per foot, if there is 3 wire in the switch box -your home and hosed
or just for speed/dimmer control a dimmer switch can replace the existing single switch. but you still have to pull the cords to start the fans
its easy, with the caveat that you may kill yourself, or someone else, or burn the house down, if you dont do it right
