When you’re trying to create a more energy efficient living room, don’t just look around; you need to look up! Use ceiling fans to make the most of the cooler air in your home. Running your air conditioning system at a low temperature during the warmer months can be a costly way to use too much energy by overloading your HVAC system. Instead, install some high-quality ceiling fans to keep the air moving so that you and your family can keep cool all summer without blasting the AC. In addition, make sure you’re using low watt, energy-approved light bulbs in your fans. Not only will you save even more energy, but you’ll also produce less heat while you’re trying to cool off your living room.
