Adding fans to your home will help you save on electricity usage and thereby save money on utility costs. The cooling effect generated by a ceiling fan, should allow you to raise your thermostat 2 – 4 degrees, thus creating cost savings on your monthly utilities. Ceiling fans produce this effect by creating a wind chill factor against a person’s skin. The movement of air across the surface of the skin combined with the body’s moisture create this cooling effect. Ceiling fans thus are an economical means to create comfort and savings through reduced cooling costs in the home. The investment in a ceiling fan will more than pay for itself and should be considered a wise addition to any room.
