|Fans - Fans are inexpensive to buy and operate. Compared to air conditioning systems of any kind, you'll spend mere pennies instead of dollars. It's good to have a variety of fans, but if you can only have one, make it a floor model, with an adjustable height and movement. You can find them under twenty dollars and sometimes as low as ten dollars.
A very cost effective way to cool your house in all but the hottest climate is to use fans to cool the house at night. Pull hot air up and out through your kitchen and/or bathroom exhaust fan while pushing in cooler night air with the help of fans in open windows or doors.
Keep your fans in tip-top operating condition by keeping them free of dust and grime. Unplug the fan and use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean around the motor and small places. Mild soap and warm water will sufficiently clean everything else. Make sure it's completely dry before plugging it back in.
While fans are wonderfully frugal appliances, if they're running for hours and hours, needed or not, they're wasting electricity. Turn them off as soon as your cooling or circulating needs have been met.
