So, as evidenced from the earlier test of Ceiling fans and air conditioners against air conditioners alone, it is obvious that ceiling fans, and their useful circulation of room air, can save consumers money on a monthly basis.
One of the most obvious ways that you can save money by using a best energy star ceiling fan is on the monthly electricity bill, when used in conjunction with a thermometer set at a reasonably-low, yet comfortable, temperature. The ceiling fan will allow consumers to use their air conditioners less often, thus causing the amount of electricity used to plummet.
What are some other ways in which a ceiling fan could save money? Most ways are going to revolve around using the fan instead of using the high-energy consumption that occurs with using an air conditioner. Probably the most extreme alternative that one could use to cut the costs associated with air conditioning would be to build a Homemade Air Conditioning unit out of a Styrofoam cooler, ice, and an upward-pointing fan. The instructions for building such a box can be found from numerous sites online, simply by performing a search-engine search on “homemade air conditioner.” Once this device has been built, having it placed directly below a ceiling fan would cause the ceiling fan to better distribute the cold air throughout the room. It can be modified further using home made ducts, but the simple device pointed towards a ceiling fan has the possibility of cooling off the largest portions of a home during the hottest parts of the summer, and the only thing that has to be replaced is ice – which can be made at zero cost in a home freezer or by buying a couple of bags of ice for less than a dollar each. Thus, even if one decided to purchase a bag of ice each and every day, the costs to cool the home would end up less than $35 per month at the absolute most. Now, most people will not go to this extreme to save money on an electric bill, so the majority of consumers will see savings from ceiling fans coming in the form of using a ceiling fan in conjunction with a home air conditioner set at a higher temperature on the thermostat than normal. The ceiling fan will continually circulate the cold air that is pumped through the ducts and vents, thus allowing much more efficiency than an air conditioner alone, all the while saving hundreds per year.
Keeping all of this in mind, it is obvious that one could save hundreds of dollars per year, as mentioned above, by employing a ceiling fan in their daily home lives. Using the more extreme methods, a household could possibly save thousands per year by utilizing a ceiling fan with the homemade air conditioning unit. When choosing the best manner in which to use a ceiling fan to save on electricity costs, one should take into consideration the benefits versus the maintenance labor required to keep something like an ice-fed air conditioner running at all times. If this is not practical, just using the fan to circulate the air from a standard central A/C unit will still provide massive monthly savings that can be used to purchase something really desirous.
