Stupid question but I’ll ask anyway. Does the IRC state that ceiling fans should be or are required to be hardwired? Thanks!
OK I’ll bite (stupid answer #1) what else could they be? :shock:
A permanent installation requires permanent wiring
Am I to take it that you have seen one that plugs in?
Got to be a good story to go along with this.:eek:
It’s a Darwin requirement.
Something like this? :shock:
SWAG KIT USE
Swag kits are available if you wish to have a super-easy installation and a degree of portability in a ceiling fan. These replace the above-ceiling wiring job. In this case, though, the hanger bracket is screwed directly into a ceiling joist.
The swag kit is wired into the fan, and the fan assembled as described earlier. Then slip it into the hanger bracket.
The chain and cord are hung from hooks carried across the ceiling, toward a wall and down the wall, where the cord plugs into a handy receptacle.
A swag-mounted ceiling fan can be taken down in a few minutes and moved to another location.
Check your state and local codes before starting any project. Follow all safety precautions**. :D**
