Cathedral ceiling fans and energy efficiency
I just moved in to a house with cathedral ceilings and a wood burning stove (insert) and trying to figure out how important a ceiling fan is. People say it will circulate heat down in the winter (if in reverse) but do folks have a sense of how substantial energy savings might be in gross ballpark percentage terms? Also, is it a benefit in the summer with central air and if so how much? Does the air movement get all the way down to cool in a meaningful way? Do you have to hang it low? Or can it be right at the top. I appreciate any wisdom any of you have to offer.
