Saves up to 40% on air conditioning
Saves energy by using air conditioner less and at higher temperatures
Energy savings up to 30%
Reclaims lost heat from ceiling
IIt has in fact been shown that ceiling fans allow a cost reduction of up to 30% in spaces with high ceilings the difference in temperature between floor and ceiling may be as much as 13oC.In cold weather, operate the fan in the slow speed, Reverse direction. This creates a gentle updraft, which recirculates the hot air trapped at the ceiling to provide even, comfortable heat throughout the room. The recirculation of warm air allows you to lower the room's thermostat setting, resulting in energy savings of 30% or more.
In a given room temperature of 20-24 degree celsius, each degree increase/decrease corresponds to 6% of your heating costs. Considering an 18 degree average temperature at floor level and 27 degree temperature at ceiling level, your fan will recirculate the air to reach a 22 degree room temperature.
