Save on A/C With Chic Vintage Fans

AC-less this summer? Don’t get hot and bothered; get cool with these summer energy alternatives, brought to you by our friends at EcoSalon:

This summer, expect air-conditioning to take up 60-70% of your summer energy bill. Pocket that premium by keeping the AC off and investing in quality ceiling fans, dependable insulation and good old-fashioned oscillating gem.

According to Mr. Energy, a typical window unit uses 500 to 1440 watts (and a 2.5-ton central system, 3500 watts) while an oscillating fan uses just 100 watts--on the highest speed. Following are a dozen-plus that will not only save you on energy costs, but look good in the process.
