Ceiling fans are one of the smartest solutions when it comes to achieving a comfortable, energy-efficient home. In fact, ceiling fans have been helping to heat and cool residences for more than a hundred years. By circulating warm air in the winter, ceiling fans effectively reduce the demand of a conventional heating system.
Ceilings Fans and Energy Efficiency
Ceiling fans increase the energy efficiency of your home during the winter. Warm air from your furnace rises and collects at the ceiling, where it doesn’t do you much good. By flipping the switch on your ceiling fan so it turns the other direction, you eliminate the stiff breeze it creates, but still benefit from the air circulation it provides. All that warm air up at the ceiling is conveniently recirculated throughout your home.
