Improve your energy efficiency by installing a ceiling fan
A little know fact about the humble ceiling fan is that run in conjunction with
energy hungry air-conditioning it can considerably reduce energy use - saving
carbon emissions and money.
Air-conditioning particularly in the extreme climates of Australia definitely
has a role in both cooling and heating, but its effectiveness and efficiency can
be significantly enhanced when used with properly designed ceiling fans that are
matched to room size and context.
According to Hunter Pacific's Managing Director Philip Allen, ceiling fans offer
the best value for money and a low carbon footprint when it comes to assisted
circulation of air in and around a room.
"Ceiling fans act to de-stratify the air in a room and break up hot and cold
pockets of air that form in corners and along ceilings and floors. As a result,
air-conditioner thermostats can be set at a level requiring less cooling or
heating so less energy is used.
"Ceiling fans are invaluable in winter also. When combined with heating, they
keep the warm air circulating throughout the room rather than accumulating on
the ceiling, resulting in lower energy consumption.
"Hunter Pacific ceiling fans are engineered and tested to achieve optimum
circulation. They are a sustainable solution that will keep electricity costs
down and also assist in raising the body's tolerance threshold for high
temperatures by about three degrees," said Mr Allen.
"We undertook a customer survey recently and 32 per cent of our customers told
us that energy efficiency was the most important factor when choosing a ceiling
"With sustainable living now becoming a fundamental element of good design,
sustainable solutions such as ceiling fans are being integrated to achieve a
high level of energy efficiency and sustainability without compromising on those
creature comforts we take for granted. Fans tick all the boxes," he added.
Hunter Pacific International is a leading Australian-owned designer and
worldwide distributor of ceiling and exhaust fans and accessories in both
