Ceiling Fans can be in use during the summer and winter, so invest in a home that is economical all year round.
As the heat scorches outside, there is a light summer breeze indoors. The solution is simple physics - a ceiling fan creates a cooling effect through the airflow directly downwards towards the floor. As a result, the air feels up to 8 degrees cooler.
You can also use your ceiling fan in the winter to create the perfect temperature in your room. The heating is on full blast, but your feet are still cold. This occurs because the warm air accumulates on the ceiling. By switching the ceiling fan into reverse mode, the warm air is distributed evenly and gently into the room. This means the thermostat on the heating can be switched off earlier and you can save up to 10% of your heating costs.*
