Come those sultry days of summer and everybody starts hunting for the ways to keep their houses cool. Yes of course there are air conditioners. But just think about the cost factors associated with air conditioning.
So is there any alternative solution other than expensive air conditioning? Ceiling fans are just the right answer to all your summer cooling queries. In fact ceiling fans are the most energy efficient way of making your home a cool place in the real sense of the term. You can save up to 15 percent off your energy bills with the help of ceiling fans. You need the air conditioner to drive away the moistures from the air so that the rooms do not become too humid.
But if you live in a region which is not that humid, only keeping the room cool is all you want, then there can be no better solution than a ceiling fan. It is not only a great energy saver, the ceiling fans are great stylist addition to your home decor. Another advantage of ceiling fan is; no special electrical connection is required to install and use your ceiling fan. Only the normal power line found in normal households will do. However, if you feel, your home is not adequately wired, you can take the help of an electrician to install a circuit box in the ceiling from where you plan to hang the fan. Also before buying the fan make sure that you have a U-hook in the ceiling.
Then simply plug a fan power cord into a wall outlet and hang the fan with chain from this U-hook. However use of a stable installation directly from ceiling is most preferred mode of ceiling fan installation. Do you live in a region that goes through a cycle of four seasons a year? Then consider buying a reversible fan that will give you services all round the year. During the summer, set the fan in its forward (counterclockwise) motion and you will get a super-cool room. With a ceiling fan at your home, you'll be able to conserve power and 4 and 8 percent of your cooling expenses are saved for every degree you raise the thermostat in summer. And all these you get without compromising on comfort.
Not only cooling, your ceiling fan is capable of lowering your heating bills during the winter too. You can save up to 2 percent on heating costs for every degree you lower the thermostat in winter. The trick is; let the fan run slowly in reverse movement. But remember, not all the fans come with reverse switches, so check carefully before purchasing your ceiling fan.
