Qualified Ceiling Fans
¦	The U.S. government-backed symbol of energy efficiency
¦	A program dedicated to identifying products that save
energy without sacrificing quality or performance.
Why Buy ENERGY STAR Qualified Ceiling Fans?
Save energy
¦	Qualified ceiling fans move air 20% more efficiently than standard models
due to efficient motors and improved blade design.
¦	Qualified ceiling fans with light kits are about 50% more efficient than
conventional fan/light units and the light kits produce about 75% less heat.
Save money
¦	Qualified ceiling fans with light kits can save more than $15 per year in utility
costs; the savings for the fan alone are $10 per year.
¦	CFLs featured in qualified light kits only need to be replaced once every 7 years
on average—convenient for hard-to-reach ceiling fans.
Save the environment
¦	By using less energy, qualified ceiling fans reduce greenhouse gas emissions
caused by burning fossil fuels at power plants.

Share These Tips With Your Customers
To maximize energy savings:
¦	For year-round savings, adjust your thermostat during fan use to save on air
conditioning costs:
-	In the summer, use the ceiling fan in the counter-clockwise direction. The airflow
produced creates a wind-chill effect, making you feel cooler.
-	In the winter, reverse the fan motor and operate at low speed to produce a gentle
updraft, which redistributes warm air near the ceiling down into your living space.
¦	Hang the fan 8-9 feet above the floor for optimal airflow (minimum height
requirement is 7 feet).
¦	Remember that ceiling fans cool people, not rooms—be sure to turn them off when
leaving the room.
