Ceiling Fans

Ceiling Fans are stylish and energy efficient!

Electricity is expensive and everyone wants to lower both their heating and air conditioning bill. Lowering your electricity bill can be as simple as adding a ceiling fan.  Warm air rises and accumulates at your ceiling.  By running your ceiling fan in the winter clockwise, you push the warm air collected at the ceiling down to you.  As a result, you lower your heating costs.  By running your ceiling fan counterclockwise in summer, you pull warm air towards your ceiling.  Also consider opening a window.  With gentle winds being pulled in from an open window and warm air being pulled to the ceiling, your home will feel cooler. The result, you reduce your air conditioning bill.  Ceiling fans are affordable, stylish, and energy efficient.  In fact, ceiling fans use about the same power as a 100 watt light bulb.  Looking for the ultimate energy savings?  Consider an Energy Star Ceiling Fan, which circulates 15% more air than a traditional fan.
