Surterre Green Tip: Fans Beat the Heat

Did you know: Fans are cheaper, easier to install, use 90% less energy than central air-conditioning and can make a room feel seven to ten degrees cooler?

While central air-conditioning feels great, it is extremely energy intensive, and typically relies on ozone damaging fluorocarbons. For those that live in older buildings, or are on a tight budget, running central air-conditioning can become very pricey.

The best choice is an Energy Star-rated fan, which can save you money on energy costs, and keep your home looking and feeling much cooler all summer long.
