Ceiling fans are a great way to save money on your energy bills this year. Installing a ceiling fan in your home can transform a room into a pleasant place to work or relax. These fans can even create aesthetic interest if done properly. (Think cottage screened-in-porch.) The value of adding some extra wind power for little cost around your home should not be overlooked.
In the summer months, having a fan rotating counter-clockwise in the room can keep cooler air circulating, giving you the opportunity to cool off with the slight breeze they create. You may even be able to set your thermostat a little higher, saving money on your air conditioning costs. If you don’t have air conditioning, the breeze can help keep your home’s temperature tolerable during the summer months.
In the winter months, switching the fan to rotate clockwise on a low speed will draw the cool air up, forcing the warm air back down into the room. This gives you a similar benefit: saving energy and your electrical bill by allowing you to set your thermostat a bit cooler and saving on heating costs.
With so many gorgeous ceiling fan styles to choose from, adding a fan to a room can really bring about the best of both worlds: efficiency AND beauty.
