Summertime can be taxing on your body temperature. And there’s no better way to cool down than by chilling out in an air-conditioned environment right?
Air-conditioning makes a significant contribution towards global warming, both directly and indirectly. There are far better, more economical ways to stay cool this summer.
Ceiling fans use around 75% percent less harmful electricity than air-conditioning units and don’t blast any hot air out into the surroundings while in operation.
These environmentally-friendly appliances don’t need to put a damper on the look of your room either. There are many unique ceiling fans available in designs to uplift the look of any living space.
Unique Ceiling Fans Work Just as Well as Boring Ones
Ceiling fans work in exactly the same way as a cool breeze. The downward draught they create by spinning anti-clockwise cools down perspiration on your body to make you feel cooler.
What they don’t do is cool down the room. It is a waste of electricity leaving your ceiling fan running while you are out. Simply flip the switch on for instant relief when you return.
In winter, you can reverse the direction of your fan so that it spirals air upwards. This will force any hot air that has risen towards the ceiling and down the walls again to warm the room. The resulting warming effect means you can turn your central heating down a notch in winter and save.
Modern ceiling fans come in a range of designs that look cool while they keep you cool. Take a look at our pick of some of the greenest, best-looking models on the planet.
