Energy Star Ceiling Fans with Light – Ceiling fans have made marked technological improvements, particularly over the last decade. More often, fans are becoming ENERGY STAR-rated. Casablanca, Emerson and Progress Lighting are proven leaders in designing products aimed at preserving the environment. So, here’s the million dollar question: Can ceiling fans be used in the summer and winter?
Absolutely. Adding one can be the most energy-saving addition to any room with a potential 40 percent reduction in energy costs. During the summer months, use of a ceiling fan can make a room feel up to seven degrees cooler, so you can set your thermostat higher to save money. In the winter, running it in reverse will re-circulate hot air trapped at the ceiling, and you can set your thermostat lower to save on heating costs.
