USE A CEILING OR ATTIC FAN INSTEAD OF YOUR A/C

Tips to improve your home and lower your energy bill

However, it is even energy-efficient to use your ceiling fan while your air conditioner is on because it allows you to keep your thermostat at a warmer temperature, and the ceiling fan will take care of those last few degrees to get your home to the desired temperature. Just remember that the fan cools you by moving air, not by changing the temperature of the room, so there’s no benefit to leaving it on when you’re not there.
