A ceiling fan can offer energy savings all year round. In warm weather, a fan can make a room 7 to 10 degrees cooler allowing you to set your thermostat higher and save up to 40% on air conditioning bills. In the winter, you can run your fans in reverse to reclaim the hot air trapped near the ceiling. You can set your thermostats lower and save on heating costs as the fan provides even, comfortable temperatures throughout the room. Either way, you conserve valuable energy making a ceiling fan a wise investment for you and the environment.
