As we head into winter, there are already plenty of dire predictions being made. The Old Farmer’s Almanac has declared this winter will be especially harsh. Are you ready to ride it out? Is your home ready? You can save yourself some money on your heating bills this winter by hiring an electrician in Salt Lake City to install a ceiling fan in your home. The team at Captain Electric, LLC is ready to help you get ready to weather the harsh winter temperatures.
Ceiling fans are not reserved for summer time use only. They are actually very helpful in the winter as well. Whether you use a woodstove to heat your home or a furnace, you can still take advantage of a ceiling fan installation by a Salt Lake City electrician. There is a right and wrong way to use your ceiling fan. Using it wrong could actually be counterproductive.
During the summer, your fan should be set to spin counterclockwise. This creates a nice breeze that you will certainly appreciate when the heat is stifling. During the winter, you will want to turn the fan to spin clockwise. As you are probably aware, hot air rises. All the hot air that your furnace generates or your woodstove puts out, will rise to the ceiling. The ceiling fan pushes the hot air down into the room. The thermostat on the wall will read the warm air in the room and will not be forced to run excessively. This is why you need a ceiling fan. Your ceiling fan can be installed in place of the current light fixture in the room by an electrician. Salt Lake City residents will notice the savings on their electric bill within the first month. Give Captain Electric, LLC a call today and schedule your ceiling fan installation.
