Whole House Fan Switch

I just purchased a 2 speed Master Flow 24" Whole House Fan (WHFS24M). Is it possible to wire the fan so that I can eliminate the pull chain and use a wall switch or a variable speed wall switch?

Not too sure what pull chain you refer to, but if you go to MasterFlow Whole House Fans and scroll down the page, you will see a timer switch that is compatible with your fan. I prefer the timers as it lets you turn it on for an hour or so and not have to remember to shut it down.

House Fan Switch

The pull chain is simply a two speed switch to set the fan speed - low, high or off. The pull chain switch has three wires - black, white and red. I assume the red is low speed and black is high speed. The accessory you pointed out looks like it would do the trick. I'll check into that. Thanks.
