Cut Your Cooling Cost This Summer With Ceiling Fans

If you're looking to increase the comfort in your home while reducing your cooling cost, ceiling fans can be a great addition to your home. While a ceiling fan doesn't actually cool the air, it does provide evaporative cooling that can make it feel cooler. In addition, by circulating warm air downward during the heating season they will keep larger rooms more comfortable and allow your furnace to work more efficiently to maintain a set temperature. During the hot summer month's ceiling, fans create a cooling breeze by drawing the cool air from the lower areas of the home.

Installing a Ceiling Fan

Ceiling fans come in a variety of attractive designs to complement any decor. Some even come equipped with a remote control and variable fan speed. While installing a ceiling fan is a task many homeowners take on themselves, we always recommend hiring a qualified professional electrician. The most important reason is safety, but it's also important that new fans be installed so the blades are balanced and rotate smoothly, quietly, and efficiently. 

Avoiding Ceiling Fan Problems

If your ceiling fans have stopped working, or are shaking, or otherwise not operating correctly, it may be wasting electricity... or worse, it may represent an electrical hazard. In this case, it is typically best to have a professional electrician install a replacement.
