include ceiling fans, oscillating fans, or whole-house fans. Energy-efficient models can help cool your home without using a lot of energy. Remember to turn fans off when you leave the room - fans cool people, not rooms.
If you're on the market for a ceiling fan, look for the ENERGY STAR
label. ENERGY STAR-rated fans are guaranteed to be high-quality and energy-efficient.
Federal, local, or utility programs may offer incentives
for energy efficient fans.
