The simple answer? Yes!
Let's break down this wind chill effect into dollars and sense. A ceiling fan can make a room feel six to eight degrees cooler than the actual ambient temperature (so an 80° room feels like 72°.) Now your air conditioner doesn't have to work as hard. Nice!
What about winter? Don’t make the mistake of turning off your fan. Instead, run it clockwise to push warm air down and gently recirculate it without creating a cooling effect. Congrats—you just saved up to 47% on cooling costs and up to 15% on heating costs. (Of course, your savings will depend on local climate conditions and energy rates. But still—not too shabby, right?)
