Stay Comfortable with New Ceiling Fans

How often do you use the ceiling fans in your home – or do you even have any? If you don’t have ceiling fans or use them enough, you might want to start taking full advantage of them. Ceiling fans aren’t just for decoration. In fact, they are extremely beneficial to have in your home – for both looks and effectively moving warm or cold air around your home.

Ceiling Fan InstallationCeiling fans come in a range of different shapes, sizes, patterns, colors and styles. They have certainly come a long way since 1882 when the first electrically powered ceiling fan was developed. The classic natural wood, symmetrical blades and ordinary light fixture has seen many improvements in the decades since, with upgraded features and more modern, sleek and elegant stylings. The appearance and designs of these popular fixtures may have evolved, but one aspect has always remained much the same – installation.

Are you an avid DIYer? Do you like installing, fixing or replacing things in your home to save money and time? How many times have your jobs gone south and left you with a more costly bill? Installing ceiling fans might sound easy, but it’s an entirely different ballgame when you try doing it yourself.

If you have little to no experience with electrical fixtures, it might work in your favor to rely on a professional to install your new ceiling fan. Whether you want your ceiling fan installed inside your home or as an addition to a covered porch, make sure you call on an electrician with experience in all kinds of electrical work. This will ensure the job is done right and your home will remain nice and cool – and properly wired!

A correctly installed ceiling fan will help reduce heating and cooling costs by circulating air more effectively throughout your home and make it an overall more comfortable place to live – whether indoors or out. Rather than going straight to your thermostat when you want to even the temperature out in your home, flip on the switch to your fan instead! From remote controlled options and dual-motor fans to Energy Star-rated high efficiency models, and standard or low-profile ceiling fans, each and every kind is designed to do the same thing – keep you and your family comfortable!

Tips for Saving Money on Electricity This Summer

Cleaning Air Conditioning Unit Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly all walks of life, forcing people to find creative ways to save money as we wait for things to return back to normal. As the calendar inches closer and closer to summer, home and business owners may be thinking of ways they can save on their electric bills. Here are some tips to help you achieve that goal this summer.

Be Efficient With Your Air Conditioning Use

If you have an AC unit in your residence or business, make sure it’s only turned on when you’re at home or employees are in the building and are actually able to use it. Moreover, savings can add up if you turn it off when you’re go to bed for the night or if you set the temperature a bit higher than usual when you leave for the day.

On days and nights where it’s naturally cool outside, consider turning off the unit all together and simply open up your windows and let in a cool breeze. Also, utilizing the ceiling fans in your home or business can help reduce your dependence on your unit, also helping you save at the margins.

Keep Your Air Conditioning Units in Great Shape

Make sure the vents in your AC unit are clean and free of debris, and that the unit’s filters are periodically cleaned and/or replaced. Failing to perform maintenance on it will cause your air conditioning unit to not work as efficiently, which consequently, will cause the unit to consume more energy. And more energy consumption means a higher bill.

Choose a Great Thermostat

Learning how to properly program your thermostat is another way to save money this summer (year-round, actually). Whether it’s doing it the old school way and reading the instructional manual that comes with it, or it’s googling and watching a YouTube tutorial, accurately programming your thermostat will help you save bundles of money.
