Big Ass overhead fans work with your HVAC to provide significant energy savings.
In summer, the fans’ cooling effect means the a/c can be set several degrees higher.
In winter, fans push the heat down from the ceiling, decreasing the work of your heater and leading to savings as high as 30 percent.
