Just think about sitting in the grass on that hot summer day, and a breeze comes up and just feels fantastic – like it’s suddenly five degrees cooler. It feels good because the movement of air past your skin means you can transfer heat from your body faster – it really does cool you down. You can have that in your home as well, courtesy of your ceiling fan - breeze at the flip of a switch. As a bonus, easing the need for air conditioned cooling with a ceiling fan can save energy by taking some of the load off your HVAC system.
