Replacing light w/ ceiling fan, 3 switches?
You have a light that can be turned off my any of three switches.
If you just remove the light and install the fan as-is with the wireless remote, you'll be able to use the fan and remote any time the old light would have been on. If you turn the switches to where the light would have been turned off, the remote and fan will do nothing.
You technically don't need a switch to operate with a wireless remote. My porch fans are not switched in any way other than the breaker and remote. You could probably remove the switches entirely and nut the wires a specific way to always be hot and cover with a cover plate.
You could probably instead install a fan control in the light switches place, but doing that at 3 places will great expensive quickly and its easier to just buy multiple remote controls and set them all to the same channel.
Lowes has a decent Harbor Breeze 52" (Crosswinds) on sale around half price if you stack discounts.
Edit: direction is switched on my units at the fan blades. Cant speak for your unit.
