This Winter, Use Your Ceiling Fan to Save Money

As soon as fall hits you may think the months of using your home’s ceiling fan are over. As a homeowner in Hudson, NH just discovered under our tutelage, when used correctly, ceiling fans can actually reduce your heating bills during the winter.

To continue using your ceiling fan during the cooler months you will need to reverse the direction of the blades to clockwise. Most ceiling fans have a switch on their motor that allow you to do this. By reversing the fan’s mode you will drive the warmer air in the room down and toward the perimeter. Particularly in rooms with high or cathedral ceilings, this can make a big difference in lost energy to heat the upper level of the room.

Keep in mind that you will only reap the benefits of a ceiling fan to make a room’s temperature more comfortable and consistent when someone is in the room. There is no benefit to running the fan needlessly in an empty room, which will ultimately end up wasting energy.

The energy savings that a ceiling fan can generate during the winter depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the room, the height of the ceilings and your heating system. However, with a relatively low power consumption, typically less than 75 watts, even if you are able to drop the thermostat a degree or two the savings will be worth it.

By reversing the mode of your home’s ceiling fan and using it in the winter, you can still feel comfortable at home, even at a lower temperature setting.

Testimonials & Reviews

We had central air conditioning installed last year by Joyce and were very satisfied with the job. Today, John N. serviced the unit and all of the components and he was incredibly thorough and professional. He explained exactly what was serviced and what to avoid (greenery around the outdoor unit). I highly recommend Joyce Cooling & Heating!

I was really impressed with the level of professionalism and the knowledge of the system that was installed. They answered all the questions we had! I also really appreciate how flexible they were with our 3 dogs, they did a great job ensuring materials /parts during install kept tidy to ensure the dogs didn't get into anything. Thanks for the great work!
