Many customers must wonder the same thing! Certainly, all appliances that use energy have an impact on your electricity consumption, to varying degrees.
For a 50-W ceiling fan, it would cost you about $36 per year, at the residential rate (Rate D), if you were to use it 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
There is a tool on our Web site, in the Energy Wise section, that will help you calculate how much energy your appliances use.
Did you know? You should change the direction of your fan twice a year – once in the summer and once in the winter. That way, when your fan is operating counterclockwise, it pushes air downward, which is the correct setting for winter. When it operates clockwise, it pulls air toward the ceiling, which is preferable in the summer months.
