Why Buy a Ceiling Fan

In today’s environment of increased energy consciousness, quality design also mandates greater efficiency. With this in mind, Casablanca is dedicated to creating fans that work smarter, not harder, so that each element is fine-tuned to contribute to overall savings in energy costs. The powerful Casablanca motors move more cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) while using significantly less energy. Fan blades are set at the optimum pitch to provide maximum airflow at each speed setting. Even at the highest setting, each fan consumes about the same amount of power as a 100-watt lightbulb.  Furthermore, a large number of Casablanca fans are ENERGY STAR® qualified and provide even greater energy efficiency (look for the ENERGY STAR logo throughout this catalog). Consumers can realize additional savings on energy costs by using the forward and reverse settings, which allow for increased circulation of air in the summer and winter. Better yet, consumers can save up to 40 percent on cooling costs and 10 percent on heating costs by operating a Casablanca fan year-round. Whoever said getting the utility bill had to be a bad experience?


...Casablanca Fan Company is proud to offer you ENERGY STAR® qualified ceiling fans that help you save energy and money and help protect the environment, without sacrificing features or performance.

Energy Star
What is ENERGY STAR?
Products that earn the ENERGY STAR use less energy and prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protectection Agency and the Department of Energy. With energy costs and global warming top of mind for consumers, Casablanca is committed to offering solutions that help conserve energy and improve the quality of our environment.

ENERGY STAR-qualified ceiling fans:
• Move air 15-20 percent more efficiently than conventional ceiling fans
• are 50% more energy efficient when coupled with an ENERGY STAR-qualified ceiling fan light kit

ENERGY STAR not only saves you money, it helps protect the environment.
Did you know that the average house can be responsible for twice the greenhouse gas emissions as the average car? That's because every time you flip on a light switch or turn on your air conditioner, you use energy, which means more greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. So the more energy you can save through energy efficiency, the more you help to reduce greenhouse gases and the risks of global warming.

Summer
Ceiling fans cool PEOPLE (not rooms). In hot weather operate the fan in the NORMAL direction. This creates a cooling "wind chill" effect to make you feel 8 degrees cooler. Research has shown that you can then raise the thermostat setting, resulting in reduced air conditioning energy consumption of 40% or more. Remember: operating fans in empty rooms just wastes energy, so turn it off when you leave the room.
 
Winter
In the cold weather, operate the fan in the slow speed, REVERSE direction. This creates a gentle updraft, which recirculates the hot-air trapped at the ceiling to provide even, comfortable heat throughout your room. The recirculation of warm air allows you to lower the room's thermostat setting, resulting in energy savings of 10% or more.
