Run ceiling fans only when someone is occupying the room. Ceiling fans cool people not rooms. Using a ceiling fan allows you to turn up the thermostat about 4°F without any loss in comfort.

  • In the winter set the fan to run in the clockwise direction to help push warm air down.
  • In the summer months set the ceiling fan to run counterclockwise to circulate cool air.
  • Turn off kitchen, bath and other exhaust fans within 20 minutes after you are done cooking or bathing. When replacing exhaust fans, consider installing high-efficiency, low-noise models.
