Using Your Fan and Air Conditioner in Omaha

Stay comfy 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 might just be using ceiling fans to cool your home when essential. But did you know that running your fans with your air conditioner throughout the summer could sometimes be more efficient and also save you more money?

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

Adjust air direction

Contingent on the season, ceiling fans have the possibility to run clockwise or counterclockwise. Air should be moving down during the warmer months to distribute more air down. To test which way your fan is moving, you can stand underneath the fan and see if you sense the breeze, and if not, change the course of the fan’s movement. While ceiling fans don’t create cool air, they can make you feel comfortable through the wind chill effect.

Raise your thermostat

The best way to cut costs this summer is by increasing your thermostat a few degrees. With the assistance of your ceiling fan, you won’t even notice the greater thermostat temperature and your well-being shouldn’t be altered too much. For every degree you increase the temperature in your home, you’re helping your air conditioner to work not as hard and feasibly saving yourself money.

Turn off your fan when you're not home

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