Title: Energy Saving Benefits of Ceiling Fans

Energy Saving Benefits of Ceiling Fans
  • Ceiling fans can bring numerous energy saving
    benefits to the home. Most ceiling fans use only
    about as much power as a 100 watt light bulb.
    When used properly, ceiling fans can save you
    money in utility bills in both the winter and
    summer months.
  • The following are some suggestions regarding how
    to reap maxium energy saving benefits from your
    ceiling fan

  • Benefits of Ceiling Fans in Winter Months.
  • Remember Warm air is lighter than cool air. In
    any given room there are layers of air with
    varying degrees of temperature, the warmest air
    near the ceiling. In the winter months, you
    should run your ceiling fan in a clockwise
    direction. This pushes warm air up against the
    ceiling and then down the walls, genty
    recirculating warm air through the room without
    causing a chilling breeze. This technique has
    been proven to lower home or office heating costs
    by as much as 10 by offsetting the HVAC work

  • Benefits of Ceiling Fans in Summer Months.
  • In the summer months, your ceiling fan offers the
    greatest energy saving benefits when run in a
    counter-clockwise direction. While a ceiling fan
    does not necessarily lower the temperature, it
    does make the room feel cooler by providing a
    circulatory breeze. If the outside temperature is
    not too high, you might be able to achieve a
    comfortable environment by turning off the HVAC
    altogether, by opening a few windows and allowing
    the ceiling fan to circulate warm air outdoors.
    Effective circulation can make you feel up to 8
    degrees cooler, and reduce air conditioning bills
    by up to 40.

  • Energy Star Ceiling Fans.
  • For maximum energy saving benefits, you might
    consider an Energy Star ceiling fan. These fans
    circulate an average of 15 more air than other
    ceiling fans, without sacrificing style or
    attractiveness. Energy Star ceiling fans are 60
    more efficient than an 150 watt incandescent
    bulb. Residential Landscape Lighting Design
    offers several Energy Star ceiling fans.

  • Installation of Ceiling Fans for Optimal
  • In order to reap the optimal energy saving
    benefits from your ceiling fans, it is important
    to install several fans throughout your home and
    office, placed in key locations. All of the most
    frequently used rooms should have a ceiling fans.
    For optimal performance, the blades of your
    ceiling fan should be between 7-9 feet above the
    floor, and 10-12 inches below the ceiling. If the
    blades of your fan are too close to the ceiling,
    you will not be able to make use of the winter
    time benefits, and may be 40 less efficient even
    in the summer time. Finally, the blades should be
    at least 18 inches from the nearest wall.
