Ceiling fan stays on?  Could be a dead remote…

Came across this scenario during a showing this morning…. Went into an upstairs bedroom to find the ceiling fan running.  I figured I’d turn it off as I typically do- in order to save the homeowner the needless expense of paying for the electricity to power the thing while the place empty.

Surprise!  The fan’s controlled by a remote, and the remote’s not working.  Quick check revealed that the battery’s dying- and it’s apparently not strong enough to get this fan shut down.  Not good.

Helpful Property Management Hint here is to do your best to have batteries on hand for just such an occasion.  At a minimum, ensure you make regular trips by your vacant properties to check on things like this.  The quicker you discover these issues, the more money you stand to save your owner-clients.

And the more money you save them, the more confidence they’ll have in you and your management abilities.
