Energy costs and temperature continue to rise and you are looking for effective ways to lower your bills at the same time stay cool and comfortable effectively no matter what weather it is. The right combination of products, appliances, and technology can give you the comfort you need.
Using ceiling fan alone might not be enough to provide sufficient comfort, that’s why you consider an air conditioner as another option. Is it really using a ceiling fan far cheaper to run than an air conditioner?
You should be guided in the right direction as to which is the better choice for your family’s needs and budget.
1. Air Conditioners
2. Ceiling Fans
A low risk/low reward method (Ceiling Fan): Cheaper to run with no ongoing maintenance costs, the repair cost is cheap once broken.
A high risk/ high reward method (Air conditioner): More effective at cooling you down and making you comfortable, requires more money spent on energy, maintenance, repair costs.
A lower-risk/medium-reward method (Combined): Combining the benefits of both at a lower cost than air conditioning alone, but with more adequate levels of cooling than ceiling fans alone.
It’s up to you to decide what cooling option is best for your home. If you can’t stand daytime temperatures then the best choice is an air conditioner, but if you’re more bothered with high bills than the hot weather better stick with ceiling fan. Or, better yet try using both, a combination at medium setting can be more efficient and effective than using either of one on its highest setting.
Few simple strategies can make a big difference in your energy bills. If you want to save money, its time to put together your energy savings plan.
