Did you know that you could decrease your energy use in the summer by using a ceiling fan?
Running a ceiling fan could only cost 2-3 cent per hour and will make your house feel cooler. A central air conditioner will cost $.30 – $.70 per hour depending on the size and age of the unit.
On many ceiling fans you find a reverse switch that decides the direction the fan will be spinning.
In summer, the fan’s direction of rotation should be set so that air is blown downward, while in the winter you want the ceiling fan to pull the air up to the ceiling and force it down along the walls.
In our next blog we will be talking about tank less water heaters, and that they might not be as good as you think
