There are a ton of ways to improve your home’s aesthetics, use, comfort, and energy-efficiency, but it’s a rare thing to have an item that can do all of the above. Ceiling fans can. If you’re wavering on whether or not to add a ceiling fan to one or more of your rooms, consider the following 5 benefits of ceiling fans you need to know about:
1. Reduced energy costs. While a ceiling fan can’t technically lower a room’s temperature, what it does is create a wind-chill effect (when rotating counter-clockwise) that makes a room feel colder than it actually is. This allows homeowners to use less of their AC while still enjoying a comfortable room. During winter, rotating the fan’s blades to circulate clockwise enables the fan to circulate warm air more effectively to reduce the use of a home furnace.
