Re: today

Hadn't heard that. But used with an A/C, they greatly improve the A/C's performance at higher temperature settings. To explain. Without ceiling fans my small abode would need an A/C setting of 72 degrees to be comfortable. With ceiling fans, that setting rises to 80 degrees. And on many days, the fans are enough. Tend to use them year around in fact. In winter, they bring that ceiling heat down [fans can be told to either "suck up" or "blow down" if you didn't know].

Did you know that ceiling fans actually warm the air?
