new ceiling fan is not only elegant and quiet but is also the epitome
of energy efficiency. Even at maximum speed, a ceiling fan uses only
50 to 75 watts (the same amount of energy as one incandescent light
bulb), less than one-tenth as much as a medium-size air conditioner.
Running a fan 12 hours a day costs about $1.50 a month, compared to $25
for an air conditioner. Make sure the ceiling fan blades are rotating counter-clockwise for a downdraft cooling effect.
