Using Your Fan and Air Conditioner in Litchfield Park

Stay cool and save some money simultaneously as the weather warms up – what could be better? This intermediate time in-between seasons and in-between usage of your furnace and air conditioner, you probably haven’t flipped your cooling system on yet and might just be using ceiling fans to cool your home when essential. But did you know that running your fans with your air conditioner in the summer could sometimes be more efficient and also save you more money?

Here’s how you can use your ceiling fans and your air conditioner correctly together:

Adjust air direction

Contingent on the season, ceiling fans have the possibility to run clockwise or counterclockwise. Air should be blowing down during the summer months to distribute more air down. To check which way your fan is spinning, you can stand below the fan and determine if you feel the breeze, and if not, change the course of the fan’s movement. While ceiling fans don’t make cool air, they can make you feel cooler through the wind chill effect.

Raise your thermostat

The best way to reduce costs this summer is by boosting your thermostat a few degrees. With the help of your ceiling fan, you won’t even feel the warmer thermostat temperature and your well-being shouldn’t be affected too much. For every degree you increase the temperature in your home, you’re helping your air conditioner to work not as hard and possibly saving yourself money.

Turn off your fan when you're not home

Everyone should consider their ceiling fans like their lights; when no one is in the room, it’s best to turn them off. Turning on fans in rooms without anyone in them restricts the positives from the wind chill and wastes energy in your home.
