A wall control can be considered both a good thing and a bad thing. Let us explain why is that. So, a wall control is not as convenient as the remote control of a fan. The reason behind it is that you need to get up from your seat or bed to operate it. Whenever you want to change the speed or light settings, you can do it conveniently using a remote from anywhere in the room. Having said that, a wall control may be more reliable as compared to a remote. A wall control does not require batteries to operate. It cannot be broken or lost as a remote does. So, whatever you use, there are both pros and cons of using a Hunter Fan Wall Control.
Best products and reviews for Hunter ceiling fan remotes:
All Fan/Light Wall Mount Control- Model #27186
This item does not get the best reviews. A user complained that the light turned on in the middle of the night – it probably happened due to wrong wiring. Another user reviewed that the switch is not CFL compatible.
Another user also commented that they installed 2 of these switches but one of them turns on all by itself – so the statement of this user proved us wrong about the first user, and more than one user faced the same issue.
A third user also confirmed it. The third user did not install the switch by himself, and he hired a professional and still, the switch was turned on all by itself. This user also shared his opinion that the switch was very costly for a poor-quality product.
All-Fan 4 Speed Dial Fan Control – Model #27181
Works at four fan levels. As per the user’s comment, the knob breaks with ease even after using it gently and the design is also not good. Another user said that they bought 14 of these products for their project. Three of them got damaged and broken during the moving. The user also got upset because the product does not have warranty support from Hunter.
All-Fan 3 Speed Dial Fan Control – #Model 27180
You can install it in a standard two-wire wall switch. Works at three speed levels including low, medium, and high. Only we have seen only one user comment that they purchase 5 of them for their renovated home. As per their experience, this is the best switch for Hunter fans that they have seen.
