Using Your Fan and Air Conditioner in West Palm Beach

Stay cool and save some money at the same time as the weather gets warmer – what could be better? This time of the year in-between seasons and in-between the running of your furnace and air conditioner, you probably haven’t flipped your cooling system on yet and could just be using ceiling fans to cool your home when needed. But did you know that utilizing your fans with your air conditioner throughout the summer could in fact be more comfortable and also save you more money?

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

Adjust air direction

Depending on the season, ceiling fans have the option to run clockwise or counterclockwise. Air should be blowing down during the hotter months to distribute more air down. To find out which way your fan is spinning, you can stand below the fan and see if you sense the breeze, and if not, vary the course of the fan’s movement. While ceiling fans don’t create cool air, they can make you feel colder through the wind chill effect.

Raise your thermostat

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

Turn off your fan when you're not home

Everyone should consider their ceiling fans like their lights; when not a single person is in the room, it’s best to turn them off. Running fans in rooms without anyone in them limits the advantages from the wind chill and decreases energy in your home.
