Question: "I'm interested in purchasing an EGLO Noosa White with light ceiling fan. There is an existing wall switch to control the former ceiling light/fan. (This light/fan was installed some 20 years ago and its operation through a remote control has proved unsatisfactory.) Can this circuit be used for this new installation? If so, will this wall switch turn the fanlight on without the initiating use of the remote control i.e is the default for the light to switch on or off with the wall switch?"
Answer: Yes - the existing circuit for your fan can be used for the new ceiling fan.
The wall switch would just be replaced by a standard light switch (by your electrician). This is primarily used to isolate power to the fan.
The fan and light are designed to be operated using the supplied remote control which comes with a wall mounting bracket.
If you have the fan running and the light turned on as well, you can turn both off at the wall switch.
When you turn the wall switch back on, the light will revert to its previous setting but the fan will remain off for safety reasons. You can then simply restart the fan by using the remote.
