If you’re looking for home maintenance tips that can help you save money, here’s one that you may not have thought of: install ceiling fans in your house! This may seem counterintuitive, as putting in a ceiling fan may only seem to cost money, but the benefits to having improved circulation can lead to reduced energy and gas bills during the summer and winter, respectively. By having a ceiling fan in a room, you can greatly modify the movement of air in the room, leading to more consistent temperatures, since cold air sinks and hot air rises.
Ceiling fans can also be installed DIY-style if you have the confidence to do some basic wiring, though it doesn’t hurt to ask for help if you need some. If you put in the ceiling fan all by yourself, you’ll save money on installation and on cooling and heating bills throughout the year!
