A: Probably not. This is a simple single pole, single throw light switch. Can't really answer without details of how the fan is wired.
A: The answer is no you need a Single pole double throw switch or sometimes called a 3 way switch. The abbreviated name is SPDT switch, just ask for the Home Depot Electrical department Leader and he can help you find one and then if your not an expert with wiring you should probably check with an electrician as to how they are wired. Again thank you for shopping at Home Depot and have a nice day.
A: If you check the manufacturers installation instructions, they specify the use of copper or copper-clad wire only. Aluminum requires a much larger diameter (almost twice the size) to carry the same current as copper. If the existing wiring is aluminum, I would consider a rewire with copper; it is smaller, lighter, and more compatible with products offered today.
A: Well, let's do the math. The switch is rated at 110v (RMS) with a maximum current of 15 amps. V x A = Watts 110 x 15 = 1650 watts. So, the answer is yes, but barely. I would suggest getting a high power 20 amp switch just for a safety cushion.
A: A 1500 watt space heater (on high setting) will draw 12.5 Amps. When a few lights or a television are on the same circuit, the 15 Amp limit is quickly reached and the breaker will trip. When wired correctly your Leviton 15 amp single-pole toggle light switch should handle your space heater but same principle applies if you have other things on that same circuit the breaker will trip. Make sure you check all the proper codes in your area. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.
A: 1500w÷ 120v = 12.5amp so you are well under 15amp rating.
A: Yes, this is a 15amp switch and can handle up to 1850 watts
A: Yes. Wire the black (hot) feed line to the switch. The white (neutral) wire bypasses the switch and goes directly to the silver (long slot) screw of the outlet. The ground wire loops under the switch ground and continues on to the ground screw of the outlet. Using the excess black wire that was cut off, wrap a red identifier band at each end within 2 inches of the end of the wire. Connect this "switched" hot line between the other terminal of the switch and the brass (hot) screw of the outlet.
A: Yes, it will
