Ceiling Fan Uses Much Less Energy than Air Conditioning Unit

The American Fan Company will keep your house cool as it gives a wind chill factor of up to 5 degrees C. It is the environmentally-friendly option, as it only uses 5% of the power required for an air conditioning unit - the fan uses about the same electricity as a 100 watt light bulb compared to the 2,000 to 3,000 watts required for an equivalent air conditioning unit.

Peter Lloyd, director of The American Fan Company, says: "The Hunter ceiling fan uses much less energy than an air conditioning unit which makes it kinder to the environment. This saves on the related CO2 emissions as well. The ceiling fan effectively moves the air around the room, providing a cooling solution. Its patented designs makes the ceiling fans wobble-free and quiet, there are no annoying hums or vibrations. Hunter invented the ceiling fan in the USA in 1886 and it has a worldwide reputation as a top quality brand."

There are 28 models, 10 motor finishes and 25 different blade finishes to choose from. You can find a Hunter ceiling fan to match any room's décor, whether it's the lounge, bedroom, kitchen, home office or hall. Hunter offers a lifetime warranty on the motor. They are easy to install by an experienced DIY person or an electrician.

In the winter, save money on heating bills by operating the fan in the reverse direction. This creates a gentle downdraft, which recirculates the hot air trapped in the ceiling downwards, thus reducing heating costs by up to 24%.
