Question: Can I have a wall control and a remote control for my ceiling fan?
Actually, most of the high quality brands on the market that are sold at specialty ceiling fan shops around the country have the option of having both controls. In most cases, a good quality fan will come with either a wall control or a remote control…and you have to buy the other control separately in order to have both.
As a ceiling fan professional for over 20 years, helping someone decide how they are going to control their fan is one of the first things I always do, so if the person who sold you the fan did not discuss these options with you, they did you a disservice.
I might suggest going back to the place where you purchased the fan and asking them if they have a wall control that will work with the fan. If it is one of the home centers, they may need to special order the control (if it is optional). Otherwise, if you truly want the convenience of both controls, see if you can return the fan and shop somewhere else where you might get more help.
