With another heat wave upon us, your A/C is again stressed to the max. Supplementing your A/C with fans is a way to stay comfortable without lowering your thermostat. In fact, you may even be able to raise that temperature setting for greater savings without sacrificing comfort.

Most people use ceiling fans to cool when the A/C is not running. But they can also efficiently supplement your A/C.
Here's what to do:

Change the switch on the fan to have the blade turn in a clockwise direction. Then set the fan to turn slowly. This will not blow air directly on you -- rather it will pull colder air that otherwise would settle at floor level and circulate it throughout the room. This movement of air over your skin helps your body stay cool and dry.

When a room is unoccupied, turn the fan off.

Today's more efficient systems have variable speed blowers that gently circulate treated air throughout your home. And because they operate with low cost direct (DC) rather than alternating current (AC), we recommend that you leave them in the on position throughout the cooling season. The added circulation not only keeps you cooler but has the added benefit of cleaner air as a result of increased circulation through your system's air filter.
