Ceiling fans help you save money

Yes, you read that correctly. Ceiling fans do indeed save you money.  It is estimated that in the summertime you can comfortably set your air conditioner's thermostat four degrees higher if your house has adequate ventilation supplied by ceiling fans.  And if you are not aware, your air conditioner is one of your biggest energy consuming appliances.  It draws a lot of current and this in turn causes your electric bill to be higher during the sweltering months.

Ceiling fans can also be used in the winter.  If set in the clockwise position, the blades help push the air up toward your ceiling.  You may be asking what is the point of air hitting the ceiling?  Well, the air tends to be warmer closest to your ceiling (heat rises). So the fan's clockwise blades cause the air to circulate from your ceiling,  down your walls, and eventually to the floor, until the whole process repeats itself.  This causes your room to be warmer.

Attic fans, exhaust fans, supply fans, and more...

The purpose of an attic fan is to properly exhaust any hot air in the attic to help with the cooling of the house in the summertime.  They are usually controlled by an external or internal  thermostat that comes with the fan.  There is some controversy though as to the effectiveness of attic fans as some suggest that they actually pull out the air conditioned air through wall cracks and improperly sealed places in the house. The evidence can point in either direction so it is the discretion of the home owner to decide whether or not an attic fan replacement is necessary.

In industrial and commercial settings there are commonly large supply and exhaust fans in an area such as a parking garage.  MKO Electric can supply the power needed to run these fans or repair these fans if they are not turning on. Often times these large fans have a motor starter or variable frequency drive controlling them. We can check to see if you have any problems such as overload or over current conditions.

In residential, we can also power up exhaust fans used in a bathroom.
