Answer: 
Hi DIYResearcher, to get the protection you need, you should have your, circuit breaker, wire and switch match the amperage .
So if you have a 20 amp circuit, then you should have a Decora 20 amp switch and 12 AWG wire.

I am replacing a ceiling fan and the old one had a dimmer/speed switch and the new one has a remote and the instructions say to not use a dimmer switch or it will damage the fan. Will this switch be okay?

Answer: 
The switch can be used to turn on and off a variety of loads, including fans. It seems that only your remote can be used to adjust the speed.

If you're using it just to get power to the unit, yes. The remote will have to be used to change speeds, operate lights, etc.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't last One of the other reviews wrote "great switch for the price" At $1.98, it's a great price. But I value my spare time very highly. I had to replace several of these switches that stopped working after a couple years. I no longer buy them. If your time is worth more than $1.98, you should consider buying the Decora Plus heavy duty switch instead. I think it's about $6, but looks much more rugged, and hopefully will last as long as your house does. March 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Switch for the Money Been installing these switches for many years. I prefer the Leviton brand over their competitors because they just seem to be better made. The quality of the switch itself and the Leviton plate is top notch. They sell a better quality decora switch, but for the standard homeowner/DIY'er, you cannot beat this item. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great switch at a great price for a DIYer I bought this switch originally to remove the current toggle I had on my walk in closet. I was always scraping up against it. Anyhow, I was nervous as I had not changed a switch or an outlet in a long time. I was prepared with all of the tools that I thought I would need. Turns out that I didn't need half of them. All I needed to do was choose one of the 3 options given to install the switch. I have 12g wiring so I selected the back angle method. My wire was too thick for the push in. There was no twisting or bending of the wire needed. If I was using stranded copper, I would have used the side screws which I truly despise. It was a super fast install. Remember, if you are replacing the skinny toggle to the wider flat switch, you need a new faceplate. LOL. Back to HD for the faceplate. Doh! May 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love Decora This is just the basic Decora switch. Like these because you can mix and match items with the universal wall plate. Used the order online and pick up in store as I had a bunch of different Decora items and it was easier to make sure I got what I wanted rather than try to find them all in the store. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great update solution We purchased these switches to update our 1960's recent home purchase that had all original switches. The old switches were dirty and mismatched from repairs over the years. Installation was really easy. They immediately updated the house and look great. This is an easy way to update your home and make it look like you've really spent some time on the details. August 29, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A switch. It works and looks great. Not a whole lot to say about this light switch, it's easy to install and looks great. The attaching clip on light switch covers are very clever. September 25, 2013
