Using Your Fan and Air Conditioner in Marshfield

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

Here’s how you can utilize your ceiling fans and your air conditioner appropriately together:

Adjust air direction

Based on the season, ceiling fans have the setting to run clockwise or counterclockwise. Air should be blowing down during the warmer months to push more air down. To test which way your fan is moving, you can stand beneath the fan and check if you sense the breeze, and if not, vary the route of the fan’s movement. While ceiling fans don’t generate cool air, they can make you feel colder through the wind chill effect.

Raise your thermostat

The ideal way to drop costs this summer is by boosting your thermostat some degrees. With the help of your ceiling fan, you won’t even sense the greater thermostat temperature and your comfort levels shouldn’t be affected too much. For every degree you raise the temperature in your home, you’re helping your air conditioner to work not as much and feasibly saving yourself money.

Turn off your fan when you're not home

Everyone should consider their ceiling fans like their lights; when no one is in the room, it’s ideal to turn them off. Operating fans in rooms without anyone in them limits the benefits from the wind chill and misuses energy in your home.
