Earth Day Energy Saving Tips

Earth Day Energy Saving Tips

What's an everyday home item that’s good for the planet and your wallet? Ceiling fans!

Ceiling fans are all about being energy efficient by working with your HVAC system to keep your house feeling comfortable all year-round. According to the Department of Energy, you can bump up your thermostat up by 4 degrees Fahrenheit when using a ceiling fan and still feel cool. This can significantly reduce your air conditioning usage.

Changing your ceiling fan direction seasonally is a simple way to save throughout the year. This summer, your ceiling fan will keep you cool with a breeze by creating a downdraft when it's spinning counterclockwise.

Don't turn off your ceiling fan in the winter! You can simply switch it to spin clockwise to create an updraft. This circulates the warm air from the ceiling throughout the room, keeping you toasty without cranking up the heat.

No matter what time of year, your ceiling fan is helping you cut down on your energy usage, keeping you comfortable, and saving you money. Need a ceiling fan? Check out the Malden fan in my collection with Hunter Fan Company.

Let's all celebrate Earth Day by making smart choices that benefit our environment and our homes!
