Q. If I am purchasing a ceiling fan with remote control adaptability, do I still need to purchase a remote kit?
A. Ceiling fans that have the remote adaptability option are capable to function with a hand held remote or wall remote. Yes, it is suggested that a remote kit should be purchased alongside with your ceiling fan.

A. We have many manufacturers that carry ceiling fans compatible with light kits for indoor and outdoor use. Lines like Emerson, Ellington, Fanimation, Monte Carlo, and Tommy Bahama fans all carry ceiling fans, light kits, and accessory packages to fit your home needs.
