Hello

The fan and light in my bathroom are operated via one double switch with one switch serving the light and one switch serving the fan.

I want to change this so that the fan and light run on one switch and the fan is replaced for one with a run on timer.

Can anyone advise what the easiest way to do this is?

Thanks

Alan

It depends on what connections are present at the switches. If you are lucky, you could find permananent live, switched live and neutral there.

That is what the timer fan will require.

If that is the case, you will then need to find out what cable goes to the fan. You will need three-core and earth. I expect that the existing cable is only 2-core and earth, So a new length of cable may need to be installed. Only you will know how easy/difficult this might be.
