Beat the Heat -- Feel the Breeze
Tip # 3: Feel the Breeze
There's nothing like a steady flow of air to improve your mood on a hot day. Fans use 90 percent less energy than central air conditioning and Energy Star rated ceiling fans are 50 percent more efficient than conventional fan/light units. Remember to turn off the fan when the room is unoccupied to increase your energy savings.
Too hot for a fan? Ease your eco-guilt by opting for a solar powered air conditioner.
