It’s definitely that time of year to think about your ceiling fans, if you have any. I’m in love with them and have the one over my bed going all night, every night – even in the winter. OK, so I’m weird to have my ceiling fan blades churning away when it’s 20 degrees outside, but I love the moving air.
Energy Star ceiling fans will help any homeowner save money with a lower energy bill, and at the same time help save the earth with less harmful greenhouse gas emissions. The Environmental Protection Agency, in 1992, teamed with the US Department of Energy in a voluntary labeling program to help curb greenhouse gases emissions. The labels help consumers identify energy –efficient appliances, and the first consumer products to adopt them were personal computers and monitors. By 1995, the label program had grown to include both office equipment and home climate control systems, and today the labels can be applied to entire homes and buildings.
Consumers who buy only Energy Star-labeled goods can expect to see a decrease in their energy bills, while simultaneously helping to curb global climate change.
And like all home appliances, ceiling fans can be labeled under the Energy Star program. Energy Star ceiling fans are available under a variety of manufacturer brand names, so the consumer has a wide variety of Energy Star ceiling fans from which to choose.
Those who choose Energy Star ceiling fans can feel good that they are doing their part to decrease the national consumption of energy, as well as their own. By doing so they will, as the Energy Star program intended, help reduce the amount of greenhouse gasses released into the earth’s atmosphere, cutting down on pollutants and slowing the rate of climate change.
Energy Star ceiling fans are no different from those which do not bear the Energy Star label, and are appropriate for use in homes, offices, commercial establishment-—in fact, anywhere that ceiling fans are normally used.
So, if you are one of the many millions of energy and environmentally-conscious Americans, and are in the market for a ceiling fan, keep your eyes open for the Energy Star Ceiling fan label. You’ll get all the quality and style that your fan company puts in all its products, and the assurance that you are buying a “green” appliance as well. The Energy Star ceiling fan will both save you money on your energy bills, and let you feel good about your purchase as well!
