When it comes to keeping cool and comfortable, we will do just about anything. Ceiling fans are a great way to keep your home comfortable throughout the warmer months. We are here to tell you about three ways that your home can benefit from installing ceiling fans.
First off, ceiling fans have the ability to lower your monthly electric bill by a significant amount. You can see decreases of approximately thirty to forty percent. Because ceiling fans don’t actually put out cold air like an air conditioning system, it doesn’t use as much energy. They actually only use a bit more energy than a 100-watt lightbulb. Newer Energy-Star fans only use half of that. You can expect to save up to $165 in energy costs throughout the life of the fan. That’s $165 you could put toward doing something fun with your family or toward another type of renovation in your home.
The moving air created by the fan makes the room feel much cooler, so you can raise your thermostat and be just as comfortable as you would having the thermostat set at a much lower temperature. What you may not know is that for every degree above seventy-eight degrees that you raise your thermostat, you save about three to eight percent on cooling costs.
Secondly, a ceiling fan can provide you with both stylish and functional illumination. A common thing with ceiling fans is that they often include a light as well as a fan. This allows you to accent your room with a layered lighting design. Ceiling fans have been redesigned over the years to provide much more style to your home and not just a function. You can even choose ceiling fans with unique designs to match your décor. By choosing a fan with a light, you will see a change in the appearance of your space for the better and also get the benefits that come from that additional lighting.
Thirdly, and you may not realize this, but a ceiling fan provides value year-round. Even during the colder months, ceiling fans can be used to circulate warm air. All you have to do is run the blades clockwise, and this will push the warm air that has risen to the ceiling down into your living space without creating a cold draft. This is another way to avoid extra energy costs because you won’t have to blast your heating system to keep warm and comfortable.
