On a new house pre wired for ceiling fan. Installing a new fan with remote control. I have an extra wire red in color. Should that be connected to the black also

    What make and model is the fan? Is there one wall switch or two present? – ThreePhaseEel Apr 29 '18 at 15:30

    Is the "extra wire red in color" the house wiring or the wiring of the fan? – Jim Stewart Apr 29 '18 at 16:18

If you are going to use remote control you do not need the red wire. Just cap it off and push back into box.
