Walk into any modern home, and you’ll likely notice something has changed. Instead of the old globe lighting fixtures typically available in every room of the home, ceiling fans have become the new standard option. But why is that?
Are Ceiling Fans Worth It?
In addition to keeping your rooms cool, there are many advantages to incorporating ceiling fans in your home. The three biggest benefits of ceiling fans in your home include the following:
Lower Energy Costs
Installing ceiling fans in every room can help lower your energy bill by up to 40%! Even though a ceiling fan doesn’t lower the temperature of a room, the draft it produces makes the room cool more efficiently without solely relying on your HVAC system.
Useable Year Round
Did you know that ceiling fans can be used to circulate warm air during the months of the year when it’s colder? Running the blades clockwise enables the fans to push down the warm air from the ceiling, producing a comfortable draft throughout your home.
Versatility for Every Room
A ceiling fan in every room offers maximum comfort in every space of the home, as well as adding layers to your home decor. The more fans throughout the home, the more savings on your energy bill.
Some homeowners prescribe to the notion that fan installation can be accomplished inexpensively by a handyman or even a friend. However, a licensed electrician possesses the knowledge and experience to get the job done, especially when it comes to ensuring the wiring is safe and won’t be a fire hazard.
