Why Ceiling Fans?
Cincinnati Ceiling Fan Installation, Replacement & Repair Services
Installing ceiling fans throughout your home and exterior space, such as covered patios, does more than add decoration or light up a room. Interior ceiling fans complement your air conditioner, cutting the costs of your electricity bill.
Ceiling fans were the first electrical, indoor comfort device, becoming common in residences during the 1920s, many operating on a simple pulley system. Efficient fans today can cost as little as 1 cent per hour to operate. By supplementing air circulation in the proper direction for the season, a ceiling fan installation in your home can make you more comfortable while lowering utility costs.
Ceiling fans move a large volume of air at low velocity. Their slowly rotating paddle-like blades induce gentle air circulation without blowing papers around or making noise. Did you know they’re useful in the winter as well? They can support your indoor comfort and energy efficiency year-round.

Ceiling Fans in Winter
As the warmth from your furnace enters your living spaces, the laws of physics quickly take effect. Heat energy naturally rises and accumulates in a layer at the ceiling, radiating into the attic or out of the house. In winter, running a ceiling fan disrupts the accumulation of heat at the ceiling. It continuously pushes it out toward the walls and down into the room, keeping occupants more comfortable. Additionally, because you’re not compelled to turn up the thermostat to compensate for heat loss, a ceiling fan can reduce heating expenses by up to 15%.
During winter, the directional switch on a ceiling fan should be set to the clockwise or “reverse” setting to circulate air properly and augment heating.
Ceiling Fans in Summer
Known as the wind-chill effect, moving air makes any environment feel cooler. In summer, a ceiling fan makes rooms more comfortable without actually changing the thermometer reading. This allows you to keep the air conditioner thermostat at a higher temperature, like 74 to 76 degrees. Generally, for every degree you increase the thermostat setting, you decrease monthly air conditioning costs by 1%.
Change the fan directional switch to the counter-clockwise or “forward” setting in summer. Then, you should be able to feel the breeze when standing directly beneath the fan.
