I'm trying to install several ceiling fans for our newly built house. I've noticed the wires have a ground (metal wire), white (assume hot), black (neutral), and a red wire. What's the red wire for? I know there's a wall switch for the fan.
Is one of the white/red for the switch and the other for always on (hot) for the fan light? Is there a building standard for the red color?
The ceiling fan has the following wires; white (hot), black (neutral), blue (light) and green (ground wire).

The ceiling fan unit has a fan and a light. So, I'm assuming I should connect the fan in a way so that the light can be turned on without having to turn on the wall switch.
