Homeowners are often looking for ways to keep their homes comfortable while improving efficiency. When temperatures start to rise, most turn to open windows to increase air circulation or turn their AC unit on to provide cool air. While both of these options are a great way to keep your home cool, installing a ceiling fan is another great option. A ceiling fan can provide several benefits for your home.
Lower Utility Bills
One of the best perks of a ceiling fan is that it can help to lower your monthly bill by minimizing your dependence on your air conditioning. Ceiling fans can be more efficient than your HVAC system, especially on days when the temperature is mild. A ceiling fan can reduce the temperature of a room by up to 8 degrees (F). Using your ceiling fan more and your AC unit less can result in significant savings in your monthly utility costs.
Improved Air Circulation
Ceiling fans are a great way to evenly distribute airflow throughout your home. Your ceiling fan also provides a steady breeze that keeps your home comfortable. You can additionally enjoy this steady breeze year-round, especially in the winter months when it is easy for a room to start to feel stuffy. In the summer, set your ceiling fan to run counter-clockwise, switching direction when it comes to the winter months.
Additional Lighting Source
Most ceiling fans include a light fixture. This light fixture provides additional lighting without taking up any further space in your home. A brighter space can be safer, as well as makes certain hobbies easier, such as crafting, reading, or writing.
