National Ceiling Fan Day

National Ceiling Fan Day 2020

National Ceiling Fan Day (NCFD) falls on September 18th each year and is a day to help inform and encourage people of the energy saving potential of using ceiling fans. We celebrate National Ceiling Fan day by using ceiling fans instead of air conditioning. So you are encouraged to turn off your AC and turn ON your ceiling fans to save energy! This day was originally founded by Fanimation in 2013 based on this statement: "If every American participated in NCFD by turning off their air conditioning and using fans for their cooling needs, the United States would save over three trillion kilowatt hours of energy consumption. That is enough energy to power the entire city of New York for months." Read more below...

More about National Ceiling Fan Day

Fanimation founded National Ceiling Fan Day in 2013 and here is a copy of their blog post for 2017:

Posted: Sept 13, 2017 at blog.fanimation.com

Five years ago, we initiated, in partnership with other manufacturers, National Ceiling Fan Day (NCFD)—a day to mark the importance of ceiling fans to energy consumption and air movement… and also to enjoy some cake.

This tradition continues next Monday, Sept. 18, with the 5th annual National Ceiling Fan Day. NCFD has become a collective effort to power down cooling systems and rely on fans to potentially save trillions of kilowatt hours of energy consumption. Together with the American Lighting Association (ALA), energy conservation groups such as the EPA’s Energy Star Program and thousands of retail partners, we’ll mark the day with fan education, a challenge to conserve energy and—as a bonus—a retail discount on our products.

First, here’s why you should care about NCFD:

With advancement in technology, today’s ceiling fans are capable of even greater energy conservation than their predecessors. Many of today’s fans feature energy-efficient DC motors, which consume as much as 70% less energy than their non-DC motor counterparts. Plus, several have earned the coveted ENERGY STAR rating, proving they are among the elite in energy conservation technology.

Ceiling fans are recommended either in place of or in addition to HVAC or air conditioning units as they require much less energy to operate. It is estimated that the average ceiling fan consumes 30 watts of electricity, whereas an air conditioning unit can use up to 5,000 watts.

Saving energy equals saving money! Ceiling fans can help significantly reduce electric bills. Running an air conditioner for a month can cost up to one hundred times more than it costs to run a ceiling fan. Running a ceiling fan for a month may cost as little as $1, but an air conditioner can cost upwards of $100 to run for the same period of time.

Now, the challenge:

If every American participates in NCFD by turning off their AC and using fans for their cooling needs, the United States will save enough energy to power the entire city of New York for months. So, help us reduce energy consumption by turning off your central cooling systems and staying cool with ceiling, floor, desk and wall fans to save trillions of kilowatt hours of energy consumption.

Icing on the cake:

As an extra incentive to participate in the energy-saving effort, many fan retailers are offering discounts to consumers in conjunction with NCFD. At Fanimation, we are offering 20% off our retail prices on all products between Sept. 15-19. The discount is valid at our participating lighting and fan showrooms or online retailers.

Join us this National Ceiling Fan Day! Cool down, save money (and energy) and eat your cake, too.


Here's the blog post from Fanimation when National Ceiling Fan Day was originally announced in 2013:

Posted: Aug 9, 2013 at blog.fanimation.com

On September 18, 2013, Fanimation is initiated the first annual National Ceiling Fan Day (“NCFD”) and invited everyone to join our fight to reduce energy consumption by turning off their central cooling systems and relying on ceiling, floor, desk and wall fans to save trillions of kilowatt hours of energy consumption. Studies published by Energy Information Association (EIA) show that 94 million of the 113.6 million residential homes in the United States use air conditioning equipment and 110.1 million use space heating equipment. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends using ceiling fans to reduce or eliminate the need to use air conditioning because ceiling fans consume far less electricity. Many Fanimation ceiling fans consume as few as 30 watts during operation while air conditioning systems can use upwards of 5,000 watts. Ceiling fans are also significantly cheaper to operate. Operating a fan can cost as low as one dollar a month while an A/C unit can cost approximately $100. Fanimation was inspired to initiate NCFD to raise awareness about how ceiling fans can fit into an overall energy and cost savings plan.

As a society, we’ve grown dependent on air conditioners. We use them in our cars and rely on them at home. That’s not to say air conditioners should never be used. However, we should educate consumers about the energy and cost saving benefits of using fans in conjunction with central air. The purpose of NCFD is to bring national attention to escalating energy costs and consumption and propose the use of ceiling fans as a way to decrease our reliance on central heating and cooling devices. If every American participated in NCFD by turning off their air conditioning and using fans for their cooling needs, the United States would save over three trillion kilowatt hours of energy consumption. That is enough energy to power the entire city of New York for months.
