    I would like to bypass the Minka Smart Fan Reciever and go straight from a Lutron Maestro Fan Control Unit (link below) to the fan/light directly. I know this is relatively complex, so I’m open to all suggestions. Attached are images of the receiver itself. Wires to the fan match that off the...

    Please god help me; I'm in over my head. I would call an electrician but we're completely tapped out financially. Long and the short of it is, I ran two separate 14/3 wires through my ceiling, with the intention of installing two fan/light combos. I have the wires coming into a large...

    Bought a light/fan combo but wanted to wire the two functions on separate switches. Got this switch, which has a spot for fan, light, hot, and ground.

    I bought a few fans for a home project, like the ones in the link below: Cooling Fan 120 VAC 80 x 80 x 25mm 18 CFM 848864007328 | eBay They are 120V 0.13A, I'm hoping they can be connected directly to a wall switch. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    I recently purchased a house that has fans in every bedroom, but they're terribly ugly so I'm replacing them. Each room is properly wired for fans and has a light and fan controller switch, so there are four wires in each box (white, black, ground, and red). I was stunned to learn that virtually...

    Hello- We are installing some AC cooling fans within an enclosure. They came with zip wire cables. I am not an electrician, but a lighting artist. I am preparing an enclosure for our electrician.
