In home ceiling fans are a great way to enhance the heating and cooling systems within the house. In the summer they create a wind chill factor that lowers the temperature in the house. In the winter, they can help distribute the heat generated by the furnace. Energy Star certified ceiling fans have a low power use electric fan motor and compact fluorescent lamp (CFL). An Energy Star rated ceiling fan can save you more than 50%. To be energy Star rated, a ceiling fan must meet minimum efficiency standards at low speed as well as high speed. In addition, all parts must be covered under a multi-year warranty. For example, the fan motor must be warranted for 30 years.
