I am wondering if I can power a ceiling fan/light by connecting it's wiring to a pigtail and plugging it into a standard 110 outlet. It will be controlled with the remote module. It will not have a wall switch at all.
Any issues with this?
Edit: The fan in question would be installed in a sunroom that I had added on to the house. Two walls are solid brick, as they were the exterior walls of the house before the room was added. And the other two walls are completely glass, as it has three large sliding glass doors to open out onto the deck.
So, due to the fact that the room is half brick and half glass, any new wiring would have to be run through conduit on top of the brick, unless I want to spend an enormous amount of time and effort trying to route it behind the brick. Given that these were exterior walls, this would not be an easy task.
Since there is already an outlet right next to the ceiling to power my outdoor sound system, I decided it would just be easier to use a pigtail to power the fan, and use a remote to operate it. I want to minimize the conduit as much as possible, so I wanted to forgo the wall switch(s).
As far as the electrical from the fan to the outlet, I haven't quite decided on the visual part of it yet. But rest assured, I will find a way to make it as aesthetically pleasing as possible. After all, I wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea about my socioeconomic status.
