Winter is very mild for most of the southern Florida region, but there are a few weeks every year that are quite chilly. Many of us will be dusting off the space heaters and firing up the furnace in the coming weeks as we prepare to ward off the cooler temperatures. If you don’t have one yet, you should think about having a ceiling fan installed before those cooler temperatures do hit. Yes, ceiling fans are beneficial in the winter months explains an electrician in Miami. The team at Elcon Electric can help you get your ceiling fan up and ready to go before you turn on the heater that first time.
A ceiling fan helps reduce your heating bill in the winter and your cooling bill throughout the summer months. The fan is designed to circulate the air through a room. We all know heat rises. In the winter, you don’t want to heat your ceiling. That leaves you feeling cool as you lie in bed or sit on the couch watching television. When you are cold, you are likely to crank up the heat a few degrees, costing you more money. However, when you have a Miami electrician install a ceiling fan, that warm air that hovers near the ceiling is pushed down.
It will not create a breeze and chill you. The fan blades will push the air towards the outer edges of the room and down. The thermostat, which is typically mounted on a wall, will read the warmer air and will not kick on as often in order to keep the room at the set temperature. In the summer months, the fan blades are switched to turn the opposite direction and the cooler air is pushed down directly into the center of the room. This prevents the air from getting stagnant and stirs up a cool breeze. If you would like to schedule your ceiling fan installation, give Elcon Electric a call today.
