Energy Saving Tip: Ceiling Fans
How Can Ceiling Fans Reduce Energy Costs?
– WINTER TIP: most ceiling fans have a switch allowing you to rotate the blades in reverse, creating a gentle updraft forcing warm air near the ceiling down into the living area.
-SUMMER TIP: make sure your ceiling fan is blowing air downwards into the living area.
– ON HOT DAYS: turn up the thermostat by two
degrees and use your ceiling fan to lower air conditioning costs by up to 14%.
– Turn off the ceiling fan when you leave the room; fans only cool people, not rooms.
