Recently I installed legitimately stylish ceiling fans in my condo because the existing fans looked out of date. The current fans were so quiet plus efficient in comparison to the old ones that I wondered if I could get away with running the air conditioner 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. She is interning with an Heating plus Air Conditioning business, so she said that people commonly make the mistake of using either the ceiling fans or the air conditioner, not both. I was surprised to learn that when you use them both you can legitimately 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 legitimately determined by laying 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, know it or not, you should turn up the control device on the air conditioner two or three degrees higher than your normal setting. It does seem to go against regular sense, but the U.S, but department of Energy claims that using ceiling fans with an air conditioner legitimately lets you feel comfortable at an indoor temperature that is up to four degrees higher than normal. In the end, the usual use of ceiling fans with air conditioners saves money because the control device setting is raised. The fans, of course, don’t make the house cooler – they just make it FEEL cooler.
