The Top 10 Benefits of Ceiling FansBy Hauslane ∙ 5 mins read
How do you keep your house cool? If you’re like most people, you switch on the AC and maybe open a window or two. But there’s another way to bring in the breeze. Ceiling fans are ideal for keeping things comfortable without running up your utility bill. Here are 10 reasons the answer to “Are ceiling fans worth it?” is “Absolutely yes!”
1. Distribute air throughout your home
Want to keep the warm or cool air flowing throughout your home? Ceiling fans help evenly distribute air flowing from your AC unit. During the summer, run your fans counter-clockwise and then switch to clockwise for the winter.
2. Enjoy a steady breeze
Improve the temperature of your home with a ceiling fan. Running a fan on a regular basis will keep your home comfortable and airy.
3. Lower utility bills
Tired of cranking that AC up all summer long? Ceiling fans are more efficient than HVAC units. Running your fan can reduce your home’s temperature by as much as 8 degrees. That adds up to big savings on your monthly utility bill!
4. Better lighting
Ceiling fans bring in extra lighting to your home. This is especially useful in spaces that are on the darker side. You can look for ceiling fans with multiple bulbs to brighten up your space.
Today’s ceiling fans are not the same as those from decades past. Many come equipped with a remote control so you can operate it from afar. You’ll also find sleeker blades, LED chips, and timers.
6. Quieter operation (especially compared to air conditioners)
Ceiling fans are no longer the noisy appliances of years past. While you may have been able to hear the ceiling fan going in the next room decades ago, today they’re much quieter. Today’s fans are so quiet you won’t even know they’re running until you feel the cool breeze.
7. Contemporary styling
No need to settle for clunky, oversized fans. You’ll find plenty of options on the market today, including brushed nickel, walnut, and soft white. (Just to name a few!)
8. Better for the environment
With a ceiling fan, you can reduce your reliance on your HVAC system. Research indicates they can reduce energy usage by 40% in the summer and 10% in the winter. That’s a definite win for the environment!
9. Small footprint in your home
One of the nice things about ceiling fans is they don’t take up living space like a tower fan or space heater. Chances are you aren’t as worried about using ceiling space.
10. Perfect for indoor and outdoor spaces
Cool breezes shouldn’t be limited to just the indoors. Ceiling fans are one of the most effective ways to cool your outdoor living spaces. They’re great for shooing the bugs away too!
No one wants to deal with a stuffy, uncomfortable living space. Ceilings fans bring in the breeze to interior and exterior spaces efficiently. You’ll love how comfortable they keep your home, no matter the season. At Hauslane, you’ll find a number of contemporary ceiling fans that match your home’s aesthetic and create the airy, breezy feel you’re looking for.
