Your Ceiling Fan Experts!

Deck out your home or office with the latest in ceiling fans from Oceanside Electrical.

Besides adding the right decor to your living room or bedrooms, there’s loads of great reasons to have ceiling fans installed. Here’s a few benefits of ceiling fan installation you may not have known…

Running a ceiling fan can make your room feel up to 8 degrees cooler. Ceiling fans don’t actually “cool down” the room, it’s the wind chill factor in action. The room feels cooler because you feel air blowing on your skin, effectively inducing evaporative cooling. It’s because of this that you shouldn’t run the fan when you’re not home.

When choosing blades for a new ceiling fan, remember that the benefit comes from the size of the blade, not the style or shape or number of blades.

Energy savings equals money savings! With a ceiling fan in your home or office, you are using a more energy-efficient cooling option than A/C—the benefit of this translates to you in as much as $165 in energy savings, or 15% off your electricity bill. Some fan manufacturers even estimate that you can save up to 40% when you use a fan in the summer, as your air-conditioner is one of your biggest power users.

A typical ceiling fan uses the energy equivalent of a 100-watt light bulb. In contrast, air conditioning and heating units use closer to 1200 watts. The new-style Energy Star fans use even less energy, which equals more savings for you! 

Ceiling fans have benefits in the winter time, too. Most people don’t think you can use a ceiling fan in the winter. But when you switch the blade direction on your fan (to go clockwise), the air will be driven upward, instead of downward. Since heat rises, the warmer air gathering at the ceiling recirculates and spreads across the room, allowing for a more efficient use of your heating system. 

As a bonus using your ceiling fan in the winter can save you an estimated 10% off your power bill, as it enables your heaters to work more efficiently and heat your rooms more quickly.
