Keeping Cool With Ceiling Fans

By
Real Estate Agent with Classic Realty Realtor

So it's 102 degrees in Northern Virginia as I write this post today. As I've thought about the temperature outside, I've additionally thought about the temperature inside of my house and perhaps you should think about the inside of your house, too! 

As we know, effectively cooling a house can be quite a challenge. This is especially true when we want to keep cost for cooling at a minimum.

American Home Shield just wrote an interesting post... It is, Chill Out With Ceiling Fans . . . I hope you will take a moment to read this most interesting article in reference to staying cool at a minimum of cost. This post will help you in keeping cool with ceiling fans.

Jay, I just checked and we now have 103 degrees. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Sarah, I did check out your site and you gave wonderful, very useful tips for staying cool. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Li, We would love to send some heat your way. However, you never know when your cool weather might just turn hot. I'm glad you stopped by today.

I'd say the same as Li.  I am not complaining.  We are cooler than normal which is just fine for me. Here in the South Bay in Silicon Valley the temperature can be warm in one area (80) and just 20 miles away it can be 20 degrees cooler. If we are very warm we just drive a little.

Thanks for sharing the link.  Many in the area wish they had power for a ceiling fan.

Have a very special week with your camera in hand.

Ceiling Fans just make me feel cooler when I turn them on, David. And, they definitely help us keep the a/c a little higher. Good info.

It is HOT all over... but here in the desert we are familiar with over 100 degree heat.  Homes here definitely need ceiling fans to help move the air and keep cooling costs down.  Kathy
