Ceiling fans to save electricity

Run Your Ceiling Fans and Save on Electricity
Ceiling fans are more than simply decorative. They can help control your home heating and cooling costs. Using a multi-speed reversible ceiling fan could save from 25-40% on cooling and up to 10% on heating costs.

In summer circulating air helps you to feel cooler so you can set you home thermostat from 2 to 5 degrees warmer, saving you energy. Be sure to get an Energy Star certified model, as it will be about 50% more efficient than other models. And if it comes with a light fixture choose a compact fluorescent bulb to save even more.

Also, make sure to turn the fan on only when you are in the room, and then off again when you leave the room. Ceiling fans cool people, not rooms. Also be aware that a fan generates heat, so that’s another reason not to leave it running when you leave the room.

During summer months your fan should be turning in a counter-clockwise direction when looking up at it. You should be able to feel the breeze from the fan when standing beneath it. That’s what makes you feel cooler.

In the winter you should reverse the direction of the blades so that it draws air upward, and run it at a low speed. This updraft will force the warm air at the upper levels back down to where people are. That will get more efficiency from your heated air and allow you to set your thermostat a degree or two lower.

Based on two occupied rooms with multi-speed reversible fans you should be able to save about $5 per month on your energy bills.
