It is no secret that ceiling fans are a secret weapon in the battle against high air conditioning bills.
Because of the way ceiling fans move air, they generate a wind-chill effect, which creates the impression that the air around you is much cooler than it actually is.
Consequently, you can set your thermostat to a warm setting and still feel the air being cooled even if it is set to a warmer setting. In buildings with properly installed ceiling fans, occupants have the option of turning their thermostats up by about four degrees warmer than the normal setting without sacrificing the comfort of the building. Air conditioners run less frequently when their settings are closer to outdoor temperatures. Reducing energy consumption saves money. In order to achieve energy savings, ceiling fans must be installed and used properly. Here are a few tips on using fans to keep your building occupants as cool as possible while reducing their energy bills. When a fan spins counterclockwise, it pushes air downward, which creates a wind chill and makes the room feel cooler. To determine how to set the direction of the motor, you should refer to the instructions provided by the manufacturer. There are many ways in which ceiling fans help increase energy efficiency, but most of them are aimed at making people feel cooler, not at cooling the air in the room itself. It is true that energy-efficient fans do not need a lot of electricity to run, but leaving a ceiling fan on when nobody is in the room is a waste of electricity.
