One affordable way to stay cool in the summer heat is to install ceiling fans.
“The best way to understand the benefits is to do a few simple calculations,” Joe Rey-Barreau, education consultant for the American Lighting Association, said in a news release.
If the ambient air temperature is 80 degrees F, your body will feel as if it is 72 degrees F if you’re seated under a ceiling fan. In fact, most ceiling fans can make a room feel 10 degrees cooler.
Have you ever wondered what size ceiling fan to buy?
To get maximum comfort and energy savings, it is necessary to choose the correct size fan for a room. Blade span is the key. A fan that is too small or too big for your room may look awkward. A fan that is too small probably will not move enough air and a fan that is too big might overpower the room. We recommend the following:
- Large Rooms – For rooms up to 225 square feet (15′ x 15′) and larger, use a fan with a blade span of 50″, 52″, 54″, or 56″.
- Medium Room – In rooms up to 144 square feet (12′ x 12′) we recommend fans with blade spans of 42″ or 44″.
- Small Rooms – Rooms up to 64 square feet (8′ x 8′) should use a fan with a 32″ blade span.
