National Ceiling Fan Day

Can you guess what appliance in your household actually helps reduce energy consumption and can help save on energy costs? If you can't tell by the post title - it's your ceiling fan! Yes, that's right - ceiling fans can help you save money!

It's not Fall quite yet, but we are in a stage of transitioning to a cooler season. This is a great time to turn down your thermostat and start using your ceiling fan more often - especially at night. When you adjust your thermostat by 2 degrees, it can actually add a whopping 14% to your energy bill! Using your ceiling fan will make you feel at least 2 degrees cooler so bring out the light blankets and use a fan instead of the costly central air that most of us are blindly using. By using nothing but ceiling fans, you can save over three trillion kilowatt hours of energy consumption!

Carolina Rustica is participating in National Ceiling Fan Day (started by Fanimation) on September 18, 2013 and we encourage everyone to be involved. The mission is to inform people about the cost-saving benefits that a simple ceiling fan can offer. All you have to do is:

1.) Turn off your central cooling system.
2.) Turn on your ceiling fan, floor fan, desk fan - any kind of fan!
3.) Let everyone know! Support by sharing - this will help bring more awareness.

Who knows - it may even become a routine habit for you and then you'll really see a difference in your energy bill. We carry several ceiling fans at our website that will look great in any of your rooms - and help you save money!
