Home comfort is a priority of many people today, especially with the rising costs of energy and the wide fluctuations of the outside temperature and weather conditions. One day might be sweltering hot, and the next day, a cold front can blow through to quickly lower the outside temperature, requiring your home's energy costs to increase to keep up and keep you comfortable. Here are some tips and recommendations to help you keep your home interior more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing with the use of ceiling-mounted fans.
Install Ceiling Fans
There are many types of home systems and appliances you can add to your home to help control the temperature for the best comfort. But to help supplement the comfort factor of any air conditioner or space heater, controlling the airflow within a room is a factor that some overlook in their quest to improve their home comfort.
A ceiling fan installed within a room in your home is a space-saving way to improve the comfort of the room without using a great deal of energy while not taking up any extra space. For example, on a warm day you can keep the interior of your home feeling cooler by simply circulating the air around with a ceiling fan. The increased airflow cools around the room cools your sin. So, instead of turning up the power on your air conditioner, which uses a great deal more power, you can save on power because a ceiling fan does not have a compressor, condenser, or pump to power in order to cool the air inside your home.
Set the Rotation
Once you have understood the benefits of using a ceiling fan in your home to cool the interior, it is important to realize a ceiling fan can help keep your home more comfortable during the winter as well as in the summer. A ceiling fan's rotation can contribute to how it affects the comfort of your home, so be sure you have it set on the right rotation during different seasons and weather conditions.
When your ceiling fan circulates counterclockwise from you as you look up at it on the ceiling, it is set to circulate air directly down from its position on the ceiling. When air blows directly down, it can cool you more effectively as the airflow hits you directly and at a higher rate of speed. Move the directional switch on the central component of your ceiling fan to manage its direction.
During the winter, your ceiling fan can improve the temperature of your space by circulating warm air from your home's heating system. Switch the ceiling fan's directional movement to clockwise, which will pull air upward and circulate it around the edges of the room. This movement pushes warm air up at the ceiling height and recirculates it around the room to keep the room more evenly warmer. Because heat naturally rises, the ceiling fan helps redistribute this collection of heat to help you feel it evenly through the room.
