How Do Ceiling Fans Work?
One of the most important aspects of using a ceiling fan is understanding how they work. You may not know this, but ceiling fans are designed to be used in both hot and cold weather. A control mechanism allows you to change the direction of the fan’s rotation in order to either push air downward or pull it upward—depending on the season and your personal comfort. So, even during an occasional temperature dip in St. Petersburg, you can rely on your ceiling fan to keep you comfortable!
During the summer, your ceiling fan’s blades should rotate clockwise in order to cool the room. When a ceiling fan’s blades rotate clockwise air is pulled up towards the ceiling, creating a draft and having an evaporative effect on your skin (making the room seem cooler than it really is). During the winter we recommend setting your ceiling fan to rotate clockwise. Doing so will circulate warm trapped near the ceiling downwards into the rest of the room without creating too much of a breeze against your skin.
Ceiling Fans Are Energy Efficient
Ceiling fans not only help keep rooms more comfortable, but are energy efficient and can help reduce the cost of energy bills in your home or commercial building. Helping cool a room or area during the summer and keep it warm during the winter, the average ceiling fan runs on 75 watts (W) of electricity, while the average window-mounted air conditioner uses 1,000W and the average central air conditioning unit using 3,000W.
Use your ceiling fan to complement your home or business’s current HVAC system and reduce your monthly utility costs. Give us a call to schedule your ceiling fan installation or repair today!
