Hunter fans have the power to cut your cooling costs up
to 40%.
Beat the High Cost of Cooling
The air movement created by a Hunter ceiling fan
lets you set your thermostat higher and still stay
comfortable. Every degree you raise the thermostat
saves up to 7% on energy costs. So, you can cut back on
expensive air conditioning ... and save up to 40%* on
cooling. In winter, your Hunter fan recirculates warm air
and saves up to 10%* on heating bills.
* On average at low speed settings. Your savings may
vary based on climate, building type and thermostat
setting.

the Environment
