It’s true, ceiling fans really can help with controlling your homes heating and cooling costs. If high energy costs have got you down try installing ceiling fans in most of the rooms in your home.
Ceiling fans are a low-energy way to keep air moving in your home. Because of the air circulation effect, you can get away with keeping your thermostat a degree or two higher in summer and a degree or two lower in winter, resulting in a rather large energy savings.
The most important thing to know is that the air from the fan should be blowing down on you in the summer and should be pulled upwards away from you in the winter. Simply use the reversal switch on your fan to change the modes at the start of each season.
