The Many Benefits of New Fans
When purchasing a fan, we often assume that its only purpose is to make us feel more comfortable. We hardly ever think about anything besides how much a fixture costs and how much air it produces. Many people are unaware of the other benefits, such as annual savings due to decreased energy usage and year-round comfort that come along with owning a ceiling fan and accessories.
The next time you’re in the market, be sure to take full advantage of these benefits:
Decreased Energy Usage- when running, an average central air conditioning unit uses approximately 2,500 watts of energy to operate. However, running a fan uses approximately 65 watts of energy to operate- a 97% difference in energy consumption. Interested in saving even more energy? Choose anEnergy Star rated ceiling fan to get 50% more efficiency than a standard ceiling fans.
Savings- ceiling fixtures use less energy and cost less to operate than your standard central air conditioning unit. See the savings an efficient fan can generate by looking at your monthly electric bill. While savings may vary depending on location, some homeowners have reported annual savings of up to $500.
Year-round Comfort- a fixture can provide comfort all year round; simply remember to change the direction of the blades. In the summer, run the fan in a counter-clockwise direction to produce a cool breeze. In the winter, run the blades in a clockwise direction to push warm air down to the floor.
