Ceiling Fans Save Energy: Ceiling fans installed strategically in your home or business can save you in air conditioning energy costs in the summer. The draft effect from the fan will allow you to raise the thermostat setting by up to 4 degrees and still remain comfortable. Make sure you purchase ceiling fans with energy efficient motors and blade designs. Some ceiling fans have inefficient motors and bad blade designs that will reduce the energy savings you can realize. A qualified electrician can install ceiling fans in your home or business and you can enjoy the savings and compliment your HVAC system.
