When homeowners are considering what upgrades they should do to their house many times ceiling fans are considered. Adding ceiling fans to your home is not a crazy expensive upgrade to your home. When you compare the cost of adding ceiling fans to the cost of upgrading flooring, countertops, cabinets, and many other things the ceiling fans will definitely cost less to upgrade. Today Burley Electrical Services has put together some of the biggest benefits of adding ceilings fans in your home.
Ceiling Fans Save Energy
Studies have shown that adding ceiling fans to your home can reduce your electric bill by as much as 40%. Saving 40% each month is a huge perk for homeowners! Many people believe that ceilings fans actually reduce the temperature in your home which requires your air conditioning unit to run less which results in the lower electric bill. That is not actually why it reduces your energy costs. Having a ceiling fan in your room creates a draft in your room that makes you feel cooler. When you feel cooler you are able to leave the thermostat to a higher temperature without feeling too hot. You can also choose energy star rated fans that will help increase your savings even more.
Interior Design Style of Ceiling Fans
In addition to helping reducing your electric bill fans can also help make a design statement. Over the years fans have become increasingly more stylish. You can find fans in many different shapes and styles. No matter what your personal style is you can find a ceiling fan that will complement your interior design choices. Ceiling fans are available in different metal finishes and colors; blade designs; blade colors; and lighting fixtures.
Ceiling Fans with Lights
Many ceiling fans have lighting fixtures on them. You will be able to add lighting to a room that may not have enough lighting when you install a ceiling fan. Home builders frequently do not put any lighting standard in the bedrooms or living areas of your home. If you choose to make that upgrade with the builder the cost is typically substantial. Burley Electrical Services can help you add the electrical wiring necessary for your ceiling fans and help install them for just a fraction of the cost that many builders would charge for the same service. Adding that extra lighting throughout your house makes your home brighter and more appealing for your entire family.
Benefits of Ceiling Fans in Summer & Winter
You be reading this article in the winter time wondering why on earth you would consider adding ceiling fans when it is cold outside and you do not need your rooms any colder. During the winter you can turn your ceiling fan blades in a clockwise direction. This will help the warm air that is located near the top of the ceiling to be pushed back down to the floor. During the winter months running ceiling fans can reduce your electric bill by 15%. When it starts to warm up again you simply switch your ceiling fan blades to run counterclockwise again.
