For those of us who don’t have the luxury of central air, it is still possible to stay in cool in Washington this summer. You can buy a portable air conditioner, a room air conditioner or you can install ceiling fans. In this article by Houselogic, you can learn how to keep your house up to 8 degrees cooler for a minimum investment. Here are a few tips:
- Energy Star-rated fans use about half the energy of a non-rated ceiling fan.
- Size matters so choose the right fan size for the room.
- Prices for ceiling fans range from $20 to $100 for a basic model, and average $200-600 for an upgraded model with a longer warranty.
