if i didnt control the speed but turned them on and off would it be much simpler?

ie. could i use regular fans to do this?

With big relays, yes - but note the inductive nature of these motors means a relay rated for motors is needed otherwise the contacts will rapidly be damaged by arcing.

Perhaps you could get remote controlled sockets as has been discussed many times before and then simply use the arduino to control or emulate the remote control for those sockets. Keeps you away from relays and 220V :)

Ahhh, that sounds much easier. Sorry for the menial questions, but im very much a beginner. Could one arduino remotley control multiple sockets?
