CEILING FANS - GIVE THEM A WHIRL!
Ceiling fans are an affordable way to add function and fashion to your home and they can help you save energy.
If you set a fan to spin counter-clockwise (forward) in the summer, the rotation creates a downward flow of air, creating a cooling breeze. Although the temperature in the room doesn’t actually change, it will feel 6-8 degrees cooler because the circulation accelerates the evaporation of perspiration on the skin.
Since heat rises, it’s good to push it down into the room during winter months. If you set a fan to the clockwise (reverse) position in the winter and set it at a low speed, the circulation pushes warm air down into the room. This process can help keep you warm while lowering your energy bills during the winter months by up to 15%.
