Become a Fan of Energy Savings
Everyone who lives in the greater southwest is interested in reducing energy costs in the summer. Ceiling fans provide a breeze that can make you feel at least five degrees cooler. And, just the movement of the air inside the house in the summer may be enough to lower that thermostat by a couple of degrees, saving you money on summertime electric bills.
Viewer Tip: Install ceiling fans in your home to help you save money and stay cool in the summer. Ensure that the air is blowing downward (usually fan runs in counter-clockwise direction) so that you can feel the breeze and get the cooling benefits. Nearly all ceiling fans come with a switch so that you may set and change the direction the fan rotates.
