Re: Wiring ceiling fans after an outlet
Can you hot wire fans and use their pull chains rather than wall switches? Yes, you can, but I would highly recommend wall switches, and separate switches for lights/fan operation. You don't have to wire the fans individually to switches, both can be operated from one switch/set of switches.
In theory, using the pull chains works just fine, in practice it is a pain in the behind to have to use the chains rather than a more conveniently located switch.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
