Ceiling fans reduce workload of oil furnace

I care about to clean my condo thoroughly, from top to bottom, in the fall… I guess that as soon as the weather cools off and the snow arrives, my family will be trapped inside for a minimum of multiple weeks with the oil furnace blasting.

I recognize better after making sure the condo is as clean and healthy as possible.

I steam clean the carpets, launder all the linens, clean the windows and clean behind furniture. I also set up the ladder and clean all of the overhead light fixtures and get rid of any cobwebs in the upper corners, and this past August, when I climbed up on the ladder, I realized that the temperature was much higher up near the ceiling. It occurred to me that when my oil furnace blows heated air into the rooms, it actually rises straight up! Warm air naturally rises and only drops back down once it has cooled. With the lowest temperatures in the room down near the floor, it’s necessary to set a higher thermostat setting. This causes greater demands on the oil furnace and leads to higher energy costs. I did a little research into the problem and study up on potential solutions. I decided to install ceiling fans in multiple rooms. I discovered that ceiling fans come in a wide range of sizes, prices and styles. I was able to choose a ceiling fan to perfectly match decor and handle the upgrade with a little help from my oldest son. The ceiling fans have significantly improved comfort year round! During the summer, the fans help to push the heated air up and out, making the room recognize cooler. In the summer, we reverse the rotation of the blades to push the heat downward. I’ve been able to set the thermostat to a lower setting and reduce wear and tear on the oil furnace.
