Recently I installed entirely stylish ceiling fans in my condo because the existing fans looked out of date.
The new fans were so quiet plus efficient in comparison to the seasoned ones that I wondered if I could get away with running the air conditioning system less in order to save money.
I brought up the idea with a group of friends one night, plus wouldn’t you know it – one of my friends argued that it wasn’t a great idea to turn the air conditioning system off, and he is interning with an Heating, Ventilation & A/C contractor, so he said that people commonly make the mistake of using either the ceiling fans or the air conditioning system, not both. I was surprised to learn that when you use them both you can entirely save money more so than if they are used independently. The real trick is what direction that the ceiling fan is blowing air. The air should be pushed down, which is entirely determined by resting directly under the fan while it’s on. If the air isn’t blowing down on you, then turn it off plus flip the switch to change the direction of the blades. Then, suppose it or not, you should turn up the temperature control on the air conditioning system two or three degrees higher than your normal setting. It does seem to go against usual sense, but the U.S. Department of Energy claims that using ceiling fans with an air conditioning system entirely lets you feel comfortable at an indoor temperature that is up to four degrees higher than normal. In the end, the official use of ceiling fans with air conditioning systems saves money because the temperature control setting is raised. The fans, of course, don’t make the condo cooler – they just make it FEEL cooler.
