A question we are often asked is whether a ceiling fan is less expensive than air conditioning. If your house doesn’t come equipped with ceiling fans, should you make that investment? The short answer is that ceiling fans absolutely use less energy than air conditioning units, and therefore will have a lower energy cost. That being said, we wouldn’t recommend entirely replacing air conditioning with fans if you live in the NOVA area. The best case scenario is that you have both ceiling fans and air conditioning. Fans help distribute the cold air from your air conditioning unit throughout the house. They can also enable the different residents of your home to regulate their own comfort without adjusting your AC settings. Like Attic Fans, ceiling fans are a cost-friendly way to help your AC unit function more efficiently over time. Interested in adding fans to your home? Contact us for an estimate today!
