Use of Ceiling Fans and Recent Insulation

Postby AliThompson33 » Mon Apr 25, 2022 4:57 pm

Hi to all,

I'm hoping this is a fairly simple question to answer!

We're having some work done on our house where one of the big benefits is vastly improving the insulation luckily.

We currently have ceiling fans in the bedrooms for use in the summer, but our builder is claiming we don't need them anymore as the insulation not only keeps the house warm in winter, but cool in the summer.

Now I feel that there is little downside, besides the heat the motor generates, to keeping the air movement in the bedrooms...

so the question is does good insulation really negate the use of fans?

Educated thoughts appreciated please!

Thanks so much

Hi alithompson33,
If your bedrooms have south or southwest facing windows it is likely that you will still need fans.

Thanks stoneyboy - I have gotten back to leaning on just getting them. They don't look bad, do definitely still work and are cheaper than air con. Appreciate you coming back to me. thanks.
