How Ceiling Fans Help Cut Cooling Costs During Hot Weather

Posted June 26, 2014

Ceiling fans can be a great addition to your home's HVAC system year round. While they will not actually cool the air, they help make living spaces feel more comfortable by distributing the cooler air near the ceiling down to your living space. With a ceiling fan you can often lower the thermostat a few degrees and remain comfortable. The moving air also provides the effect of evaporative cooling against your skin. Because ceiling fans do not lower the overall temperature in the house, it's a good idea to them off in rooms that are unoccupied.

Choosing a Ceiling Fan

Just like your air conditioner, ceiling fans are energy rated. By choosing a more efficient Energy Star rated unit the operating cost will be lower. For additional comfort and convenience many fans come with built in lighting, variable fan speed and wireless remote controls. For your safety, a qualified electrician should install your ceiling fans to ensure they are properly mounted, wired and balanced.
