Get Cool with Home Ceiling Fans
Even if your home is outfitted with central air conditioning, a ceiling fan is an ideal tool to make the balmy days and nights a little more comfortable.
Summer Electricity Savings
Run your ceiling fan in the counter-clockwise or forward position during summer to force a cool breeze down to the center of the room. The moving air makes you feel cooler, allowing you to set your air conditioner’s thermostat a few degrees higher.
The change in your thermostat setting can reduce your monthly energy costs significantly during the hottest part of the summer. Electrical utilities estimate that families can save up to 14 percent on cooling by turning the thermostat up just 2 degrees.
The presence of a ceiling fan itself does not impact how often your air conditioner turns on, but just makes you feel cooler so you can comfortably increase your home’s temperature a few degrees.
Ceiling Fan Installation
Safely installing ceiling fans can be a challenge for the typical homeowner. We recommend that you leave the installation, and any repairs, to a licensed and insured electrical contractor. Egan Electric can help you choose the correct electrical box, mount the fan and balance the blades — All at affordable, competitive pricing.
