You may not think twice about touching your ceiling fan when it is cold outside and you have to turn up the heat. However, did you know that using your ceiling fan in the winter can actually save you some money when it comes to your heating costs? The only thing you will need to do is hit the switch.
During the summer months, the ceiling fan blades will spin counterclockwise. The blades turn counterclockwise in order to move the air in your home downward. Since the blades will move air down, the people in a home will feel cooler. What happens in the winter? During the winter months, the air from your heating system will make its way towards the ceiling and the cooler air will make its way downward.
When you change the direction your ceiling fan’s blades turn, the cooler air in your home will be taken upward. As a result, the warm air will make its way down. How will this have an impact on your heating bill? When you can keep the warm air at a low level where everyone can feel it, you will not have to turn your thermostat up so high. You will be able to turn your temperature down, and this will save you money in the long run.
While using your ceiling fan does not use a substantial amount of electricity, you will still be able to appreciate the amount of money you can save during the winter months. For more home lighting or energy saving tips, do not hesitate to contact us today.
