Pre wire for ceiling fans?
We told the builder to go ahead and pre-wire for ceiling fans in almost every room. We like running fans in bedrooms at night, and even though they aren't my favorite look, I think it is a practical thing to do.
Anyway, what exactly does it mean to pre-wire? I've been browsing ceiling fans online, and I'm not sure if I should be looking at special types of fans or not. Will the wall switches control both light and fan? Do they automatically control fan speed? Some fans are pictured with little chains hanging down (the ones in our current house have chains) and some are not. I'd really like to start making some decisions on ceiling fans and lights.
I'm so clueless and embarrassed that I can't figure this out. Can someone explain this to me, please?
