Heating and cooling account for nearly half of the energy use in a typical home, making it one of the largest expenses both home owners must face every month. In our current climate, there’s no question that everyone wants to reduce energy expenses by as much as possible. But when your comfort is at stake, it can be difficult to have the discipline to turn down the thermostat. If you are looking for a better way to reduce your monthly energy bill without sacrificing your comfort or breaking the bank by splurging on a newer, more efficient HVAC system, then you have come to the right place.
Believe it or not, ceiling fans can help save money on your energy bill. It’s true! They are more than just decorative ornaments for your home. When the heat becomes unbearable and your air conditioner is working overtime, switching on a ceiling fan to make sure the cool air reaches every crevice will ease its workload. With a lighter workload courtesy of your new ceiling fan, your air conditioner won’t be using so much expensive energy.
Obviously, fans have a knack for cooling down your home, but how can they help you when the weather’s cold? Well, heat rises. As a result, most of the hot air you are paying good money for ends up lingering around the ceiling. This means that you aren’t actually getting a chance to enjoy the heat you’re paying for. A ceiling fan can push the hot air around the ceiling down to where you are, allowing you to stay comfortable at a reasonable price, no matter how cold it is outside.
Given the energy savings a home can stand to get from installing ceiling fans, you might be tempted to go out and buy a bunch right away. We urge you to restrain yourself for a minute because unless you are a licensed and insured electrician, you won’t be able to install it safely.
Of course, this is an easy fix because all you need to do to make sure your ceiling fan is safely installed is to contact First Choice Electric, LLC.

What a Ceiling Fan Can Do for Your Home
You probably don’t realize how much good a professionally installed residential ceiling fan can do for your home. A few of the highlights include:
In the winter, heated air rises and collects around the ceiling. Ceiling fans circulate the warm air and push it back down to where you are. In the summer, ceiling fans create a cool breeze to keep air circulating so that it does not become too damp or stagnant. When you let a ceiling fan redistribute the hot or cool air in your home, you are taking a significant amount of strain off your air conditioner and heater.
