One of the most popular requests Fusion Electric receives as a Kansas City electrician is for ceiling fan installations. It’s no wonder with the extreme temperatures we experience in summer and winter here in the Midwest. Ceiling fans can make us feel cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Benefits of a Properly Installed Ceiling Fan
- Helps energy efficiency
- Keeps air moving in your home
- Adds style to any room
- Is inexpensive to operate
Installing Ceiling Fans Can Lower Your Energy Bills
Did you know that ceiling fans can save Kansas City homeowners up to 40% on their air conditioning bills? That’s because ceiling fans create a breeze that makes the temperature in the room feel seven or eight degrees cooler than it really is. That means you can set your thermostat seven degrees higher than the normal level and still feel comfortable in a room with a ceiling fan. A thermostat set at 80 degrees will make the room feel like it is set at 72 degrees with a ceiling fan going.
Ceiling Fans Create a Wind Chill Effect
Ceiling fans cool the room by creating a “wind chill effect”. While they do not actually lower the room temperature, this wind chill effect makes it feel cooler by accelerating the evaporation of perspiration on your skin. Just making the air move makes the room feel more comfortable. In the winter, because heat rises, ceiling fans can help push down all of the warm air that rises to the ceiling, and make it feel warmer. This helps lower your heating bills. Fusion Electric can install or replace all brands of ceiling fans.
We Can Install a Ceiling Fan Almost Anywhere Indoors or Out
Kansas City homeowners are adding ceiling fans to almost every room in their homes. Sleeping below a ceiling fan in a bedroom is much more comfortable during the hot summer. And with the popularity of outdoor rooms, we have been installing ceiling fans rated for outdoor use in three-season rooms, outdoor kitchens, under decks and more. We can make you comfortable inside and outside your home!
