Ceiling fans can keep you and your family cool during summer. In winter, you can flip a small switch near the light on most ceiling fans to make the blades spin clockwise instead of counterclockwise. That way, your Dallas, Texas, home will feel warmer and more comfortable. By adding ceiling fans, you can lower your utility bills, prevent stale air, and increase the value of your home.
Lowering Your Utility Bills
Ceiling fans create a breeze in summer, letting you keep your thermostat at a higher temperature and stay comfortable. In winter, they push warm air that collects near ceilings towards walls, preventing the most heated parts of your home’s rooms from being the ceilings. Ceiling fans also help people avoid feeling cold when indoor temperatures are low. Since you won’t need to use your HVAC system as much, your utility bills will be lower. Ceiling fans will pay for themselves over time through energy savings.
Preventing Stale Air
Ceiling fans circulate air and keep dirt, dust, mold, pollen, and other contaminants from accumulating on furniture, floors, and other surfaces. Since many pollutants stay in the air longer, your HVAC system’s air filter will have a better chance to catch them. You can also avoid unpleasant smells and keep your home clean with less effort.
Increasing the Value of Your Home
Ceiling fans are inexpensive and easy to install. They come in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles to suit any decor, and you can even change the blades on some models. They add lighting and make your home look more appealing to buyers. They’re are also quiet. People will appreciate the energy savings that they can provide as well.
