need a remote for whole house fan

Does any body know if a regular remote setup for a ceiling fan would work for a whole house fan.
I seen some remote setups that a person can add to a ceiling fan at home depot.
I just want to run wiring to the whole house fan and not have to worrie about wiring in a switch.

Thanks Doug

If the part of the switch that installs in the fan is rated for the proper hp then it sould work, but since this would not be an OEM setup you would have no warentee.

Another option is X-10 modules available at radio shack. (I am not endorcing one store this is just an example)

With these you install a recieving module in the attic and a transmitting module anywhere in the house that you want. Your electrical lines carry the signal.
