Chantilly Home Owners: Save Money By Properly Using Your Ceiling Fan

Just in case you forgot, every year at the turn of seasons, you can save a little on energy bills and add comfort to your Chantilly area home by changing the rotation direction of your ceiling fans.

Take a look at this 2-minute video and you will get a simple demo on how this works.

During the cooler months, you want the blades of the ceiling fan to rotate clockwise.  It moves warm air at the top of a room downward.  The right blade direction can change a room’s “feel” by 8 degrees or more, and that will achieve the same level of comfort at reduced energy costs.

Many of these money and energy saving strategies are easy.  You just have to know and do them.
