To help save on the cooling costs of your home, consider using ceiling fans. Moving air over the body provides a cooling effect. The use of ceiling fans means savings of around 25% on cooling costs and can make the temperature seem 10 degrees cooler.
Remember, ceiling fans cool people, not rooms. So when you’re not in the room, turn the fan off to save even more money.
You can use a ceiling fan all year round; just make sure it is spinning in the right direction for either cooling in summer or warm air circulation in winter. In the summer, you want the blades facing so the fans push the air downwards and vice versa in the winter.
