Save Money on your Winter Energy Bills with Ceiling Fans

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Yes you read that correctly, Ceiling fans can help reduce your energy usage and costs in the winter time also! Although ceiling fans are more commonly linked to hot weather they can help add comfort year-round. They also cost a lot less to operate than your heating and cooling units. Energy Star pie_graphSince heating and cooling is the majority of your energy bill they can help save you money throughout the year.

According to The U.S. Energy Information Administration the average U.S. household will pay $986 during the 2010 – 2011 winter season. An easy way to reduce this amount up to 15% every year is by changing the direction of your ceiling fan during the cooler months.

Ceiling Fan Direction in the Winter

During the Summer ceiling fans add a cooling breeze to your home but if you operate them in reverse mode in the Winter they can help distribute warm air evenly throughout a room allowing you to turn down your thermostat.

When a fan is in reverse mode (spinning clockwise) it re-circulates the warmer air that is trapped near the ceiling down to the floor level distributing the warmer air where it is needed the most.

To determine what direction your ceiling fan is spinning and exceptions to keep in mind check out Del Mar Designs Ceiling Fan Direction Guide.

Ceiling Fans with built in HeatersHunter Westover Four Seasons 21894

Another safe and affordable way to stay warm in the cooler months is with a Hunter Westover Four Seasons ceiling fan. This fan is great for year round comfort because it features a built in heater. The Westover Four Seasons fan features Hunter’s Illumi-Heat Ceramic Heating Technology which allows you turn down your thermostat even lower or even off.

Emerson Ceiling Fans

Friday, November 12th, 2010

Emerson has been producing quality ceiling fans for over a century now. Emerson ceiling fans are meticulously engineered, hand crafted and built to last. Emerson created the first brush-type fan motor which was used in one of the world’s first desk fans. The spirit of innovation continues at Emerson with new ideas and products developed every year.

Emerson was one of the first and now the largest producer of electric motors in the world. They make around 340,000 motors a day! In 1897 J. W. Emerson said “We will endeavor to furnish the handsomest as well as the best fan motor on the market. If you need relief from the heated term, try our fan motors and be happy”. Their motors have set and continue to set the industry standard through the years due to their reliability and excellence.

The Emerson K55XL motor is said to be the best performing motor in the industry today. This motor is built for optimal performance and longevity. So you can run the ceiling fan year round without worrying about any problems.
