Make sure that your ceiling fan is strategically located. Fans work by pushing air around the room and onto you. When the air makes contact with your skin, your body will feel cooler than the room temperature. This is known as the wind chill effect and it is an effective way of beating hot days. The power of a ceiling fan is in it’s ability to cool people, not rooms. That’s why running a fan in an empty room won’t work, because it has no opportunity to keep anyone cool. Make your home environment feel comfortable by placing a fan in the most frequented rooms.
