Electric Fans vs Air Conditioners
Before 1902, air conditioners did not exist, and it was considered a luxury to have a ceiling fan. Today, most of the American public have an A/C unit installed in their home, and it’s hard to imagine life without it. There are clear benefits to using electric fans instead of air conditioners, however, and we’ve outlined some of the differences below.
Lower Your Electric Bill
Today’s electric fans are highly energy-efficient, with motors that move air using minimal electricity. Meanwhile, even the latest air conditioners still consume a tremendous amount of power, costing American homeowners around $11 billion a year. That’s about 5% of the energy consumed in the entire country!
The oscillating design can cool down a large room, but it doesn’t require a special installation or assembly. It’s the perfect solution for a budget-conscious household.
Harness the Air Movement
Ducted air conditioners do an excellent job of cooling an entire home, but many people rely on window units, which are far less effective. Instead of living like a hermit in the only air-conditioned room in your apartment, you can invest in a few tower fans and place them in strategic locations. Unlike window A/C units, these fans can be positioned however you like, and the LCD remote makes it easy to turn them off when you leave a room.
Avoid Costly Installation and Maintenance
Finally, duct air conditioner systems are extremely expensive to install in a home, and they require periodic maintenance to stay in working order. On the other hand, portable electric fans have no installation costs, and they only require minimal cleaning with compressed air and a dry cloth. Simply spray compressed air (or run a hand vacuum) over the panels to get rid of accumulated dust. It’s the most cost-efficient way to stay cool.
