During summer months, cooling bills can skyrocket. Ceiling fans are a great way, however, to cut back your reliance on your air conditioner. By using an EnergyStar rated ceiling fan, you can reduce the cost of your energy bill by up to 15 percent. Be sure to select the right size ceiling fan for your room, and remember to anchor your fan to a ceiling joist whenever possible.

Don’t forget that ceiling fans aren’t only helpful during warm months. When temperatures start dropping, switch your fans so the blades draw cold air up, leaving your room much warmer.

  1. I appreciated the info in the video related to interior fans and their efficiency. However, I still need a guide line of how to select the correct size for an interior ceiling fan. There are so many sizes,
    42 inches, 44 inches, and 52 inches. I understand the Energy Star factor. Please help, thanks,

    I recently acquired a Haiku ceiling fan knowing how much of an impact a ceiling fan has on your energy bill. It is unbelievable how much you can save by purchasing an energy efficient fan such as these to help reduce costs. The fan also offers a Whoosh mode that mimics a natural cold breeze making the room feel much cooler than a constant speed.
