In the winter, running your fan at a low speed in a clockwise direction will save you money! This direction pulls cool air up toward the ceiling, which in turn displaces the warm air that rises and collects near the ceiling. The low speed prevents any drafty “wind chill” and keeps the airflow steady and consistent.
In the summer, a ceiling fan will move more amounts of air in a counterclockwise motion. This creates a cool breeze that reduces ambient temperatures by up to eight degrees. Which in turn saves you close to 40% in air conditioning bills.
Ceiling fans are an incredibly useful tool when used properly.
Most homes have very poor lighting especially if the homeowner did most of interior designing. Fortunately, there is a ‘cure’ to the poor lighting problem. Simply install a multi-function ceiling fan that comes with bright, broad lighting. It should be enough to light a poorly lit room. Some multi-function fans can accommodate up to four bulbs thus, providing sufficient brightness at half the energy.
Ceiling fan varieties have continued to increase as the manufacturers continue to produce more designs to match the fast-changing home styles. Unlike a while back when ceiling fans were termed as unsightly, these days the designs are so customizable, that it’s likely you will find a fan to match your style.
A ceiling fans importance is often ignored but if you look at it closely, you’ll see that it’s doing great contributing to the overall beauty of your home!
