Save on heating and cooling costs with a ceiling fan
Did you know that by using your ceiling fan in conjunction with an air conditioner or heater you can reduce the cooling and heating costs in your home?
The ceiling fan helps to redistribute the cool air in the summer and the warm air in the winter. This often means you don’t need to boost the thermostat up or down to maintain a comfortable temperature in the room, reducing the work the heater or air con needs to do and therefore reducing the power usage.
A ceiling fan costs around 13 cents per hour to run on the low setting, which equates to around $1.90 per year (running 4 hours a day every day). Even if you’re running the fan on the highest setting the costs only amount to around $14 to $19 per year.*
Summer and winter fan settings
Many fans have a small switch on the motor housing which changes the direction of the fan rotation to a winter or summer setting.
The summer setting moves the air downwards to create a cool breeze, this setting can also be used to recirculate the chilled air from your air conditioner.
The winter setting moves in the opposite direction, gently recirculating the warm air back down through the edges of the room.
Simply switch to the relevant ceiling fan setting for cost-effective, energy-efficient climate control all year round.
