Five Best Reasons to Use Ceiling Fans in Your Home

Sep 5, 2008
Are you trying to make improvements to your home that can help you save energy and add to the resale value of your home? Adding ceiling fans to most of the rooms in your home, especially the bedrooms, can really increase the value of your home. Here are the top five ways that adding ceiling fans to your home can save you money:

1. Ceiling fans will lower your energy costs -- Ceiling fans help with air flow and circulation in the home. When there is good air flow throughout the home you won't have to use as much heat or air conditioning to control the temperature in the home so you will spend less money on energy costs. You might be able to leave the air conditioner off entirely during the summer which will lower your electricity bill dramatically.

2. Ceiling fans increase the value of your home -- Homes that have ceiling fans installed have a higher resale value than homes that don't have ceiling fans. If you want to make small improvements to your home that can result in a dramatic jump in resale value try adding a few ceiling fans to the rooms in your home and you'll see that those fans will add a lot to the resale value of your home.

3. Ceiling fans are a cheap way to cool your home -- If you don't have air conditioning and you live in an area that gets very warm in the spring and summer, you'll find that you may not need to install an air conditioner if you have ceiling fans. Opening the windows and leaving ceiling fans on can dramatically cool off a home.

4. Ceiling fans help heat your home in the winter -- Changing the direction of the blades on a ceiling fan can draw the hot air in a room and help it circulate throughout the room. So if you have radiator heat that tends to heat one part of the room and not the whole room adding a ceiling fan can help the heat circulate throughout the room so that the whole room is warm.

5. Ceiling fans are a convenient way to control the temperature in a room -- How many times have you been lying in bed wanting to get up and turn the heat up, or turn the air conditioning on, but been too tired to get up and change the temperature in the room? Many modern ceiling fan units are remote controlled so that you can control the temperature in a room with a touch of a button and don't have to get up to turn the fan on or off, or adjust the speed.
