In Florida Ceiling Fans are more then likely in many homes, offices and restaurants. For the homes, most have these fans in every bedroom, living room, den, kitchen/dining rooms and of course porches. Restaurants use them to help circulate the air and give a pleasant dining experience when it is hot outside.
With the Summer heat rolling in around June and lasting until at least October, these fans keep us cool along with the air conditioners that run through out these months. When using a Ceiling Fan you can raise your a/c thermostat a couple of degrees and save up to eight percent of your electric bill.
How does this work? A ceiling fan does not give off cool air unless the air is cool. It simply moves the air around you even if that is hot summer air. What this does is evaporates perspiration on your skin when you are over heated. Put a ceiling fan on your outside porch and you will not have to sit in the humidly and heat, the fan will make you feel cooler and able to enjoy.
It is possible though to be wasteful with a ceiling fan and not reap the benefits of saving on the light bill. If you are not in the room, or on the porch, turn it off just like you would a light switch. The fans motor heats up and puts that heat into the room raising the temperature of the room. Leave a fan for a while and you will notice the difference when you walk back into the room.
Not only are ceiling fans beneficial for Summer but also useful in the winter if you have one that is reversible. If you have a reversible fan you will see a switch on the motor housing to make this adjustment.
While in the summer you want the full effects of the air circulation on yo, the revers mode pulls the air from the ceiling and down the walls. This brings hot air (which rises) down from the ceiling and along the walls. It is best to run your fan on low for this effect and you could turn the thermostat down a 3-5 degrees saving money again on your heating bill.
Not only are ceiling fans great for your wallet and comfort they are also decorative, space savers and safe for children and pets.
