I remember the day vividly, it was on our honeymoon on a lovely Fijian island. It had been a hot day and we were going to retire to our unairconditioned hut and I was actually dreading the night. Imagine the surprise I felt when I discovered what a great job the ceiling fan did to keep us cool. On our return home I had ceiling fans fitted to all the bedrooms as well as the family room.
The family room is the only room that has an air conditioner and we only use it on the hottest days. Imagine the power that I have saved over the years.
