Keeping cool in summer is easier with moving air which cools our skin by enhancing evaporation. In fact, studies show people are comfortable with air temperatures as much as 2 degrees higher if there is moving air. Unfortunately, many ceiling fans made in the past are ugly, noisy energy hogs. Wasting electricity is a double problem since the energy in the electricity that doesn’t turn the fan blades is given off as heat—defeating the fan’s purpose.
Many modern ceiling fans are carefully engineered to be considerably more energy-efficient and quiet than previous fans. The modern fans incorporate advanced materials in a wide variety of attractive designs.
