We all know that remote controls have an uncanny way of disappearing right when you need them. And it doesn’t matter what kind of remote it is! TV remotes, fan and lighting remotes, they all manage to disappear. Remote controls get used by the whole family, so it is easy for them to end up lost. Today we are going to discuss how Martec accessories and replacements are here to help!
The Statistics on Lost Remotes
Losing your remote can be annoying and stressful, and finding it takes time you could spend relaxing or sleeping. Statistics show we spend around 2 weeks of our lives merely looking for remote controls. In fact, the remote control is listed as one of the top 5 things people lose most often. So where are these remote controls? Well, statistics show that 49% of remotes are found in the couch, 8% are found in the bathroom, another 8% are found in drawers, 4% are left in the fridge or freezer, and 2% are found outside!
Tried and True Methods for Finding Your Remote
Losing the remote control is a common problem, especially as fan remote controls are getting smaller and smaller. But we have some tried and true methods to help you locate these sneaky accessories:
1: Check the clutter on your coffee or bedside tables
2: Ask family or friends if they have moved or seen the remote
3: Check down the side of couches, under cushions, between bedframes and mattresses, and under pillows. Shake out blankets and bedsheets
4: Look on top of and under furniture
5: Check other rooms as you go, just in case the remote has migrated elsewhere
But what about the remotes that are never found? There’s nothing worse than wanting to turn your ceiling fan on or off, and the remote is completely missing!
Replacement Accessories and Remotes
Luckily many foresighted manufacturers, like Martec, provide high quality replacement remote controls and accessories. These are the perfect DIY option as they don’t require an electrician or any expert help. These remotes often come with a universal radio frequency which allows them to quickly connect to your ceiling fan.
Martec fan remote controls also come with in-home warranties and 3 speed settings (low/medium/high) on/off capabilities and even light functions. This makes them the perfect replacement for your lost ceiling fan remotes. While they are perfect for all Martec AC model ceiling fans, they are also compatible with most other brands of ceiling fans. These remotes utilise easy-to-replace batteries and come with a wall mounting bracket, to help prevent you losing it again!
