Green Tips: Fan Out For Maximum Heat

Radiators and wall heaters are often inefficient at heating large spaces. This can be a real drain on your heating bill. Go green! Make your old heater more eco-friendly by using an oscillating fan to spread heat evenly through the room.

Oscillating fans are especially helpful in older homes that rely on their heating from a central radiator, wood stove, fireplace, or something similar. Because the heat generated from these types of appliances is usually limited to a short range, placing an oscillating fan next to it can help to push that warm air out and to the rest your home. This means you won’t have to add more wood to the fire or raise the temperature on the thermostat in order to heat your entire home – and of course this means you save money in the long run.

This is a great technique that can be used in your own home if you find that certain spots are left warmer than others. An oscillating fan will spread the heat out evenly, allowing you to live more comfortably in all areas of your home during the winter months, instead of having to stay in one room or another. Spreading the heat throughout the room will also save energy by allowing you to use less heat to warm larger spaces.
