Summer weather gets hot in Charlotte, North Carolina, and so does your home. However, turning down the thermostat to stay cool makes your HVAC system work harder and increases your energy bill. Did you know that a ceiling fan installation can address these issues? Here are four benefits of a ceiling fan installation:
Keeps You Cool
One of the main benefits and purposes of a ceiling fan is to keep you cool. Rather than cool the room itself, it creates a wind chill effect that circulates air in the room. You can increase your thermostat by about 4 degrees during the summer and still feel comfortable. On warm spring and autumn days, you may not need your air conditioner at all.
Saves You Money
By increasing your thermostat, your HVAC system runs less to maintain that setting. Also, the air circulation maintains temperatures better. Combined with an Energy Star-rated ceiling fan, which uses less energy than a 100-watt light bulb, you can save energy and money.
Useful in the Winter
A ceiling fan also circulates warm air during the winter. Setting the blades to run clockwise allows the fan to draw cool air up. At a low speed, this creates a gentle updraft that forces warm air down, making you feel warmer. You can then lower your thermostat to save energy and money.
Ceiling fans are available in numerous finishes, sizes and styles. You can choose one that complements your decor or even serves as a focal piece for a room. Manufacturers make outdoor ceilings fans, too, so you can install one pretty much anywhere that there’s a ceiling, including a deck, patio or sunroom.
Getting a ceiling fan installation clearly offers great benefits for your comfort and pocket all year around. Contact Air Today at 704-893-1230 to schedule yours right away.
