Keep cool and save energy

When the temperature rises it is hard to maintain comfort inside a home or office without a high energy cost. A local supplier presents an affordable, classic solution as an alternative to investing in air conditioning.

Solent suggests installing a ceiling fan in each living space or office area. If the building is still using old generation ceiling fans, an upgrade to its new product range should result in further savings. Many newer models are more efficient than before and are better styled to suit décor requirements. Using a ceiling fan as opposed to an air conditioner can save you as much as 40% on your bill. Ceiling fans create a breeze that makes the temperature feel seven or eight degrees cooler than it actually is by creating a wind chill effect. When a ceiling fan is used in conjunction with an air conditioner, it can lower energy costs because the thermostat of your air conditioner may be set to a higher temperature and run for a shorter period of time. Solent Ceiling Fans advises that installing ceiling fans in unusual places, such as a laundry room and closets, may also assist circulation in these environments and help to prevent staleness and dampness.
