Full Answer

Leaving the fan on continuously can increase the life span of the fan's motor and help keep the air in a home cleaner. It also distributes heated or cooled air through the house evenly. However, to do this costs more in utility bills than if the fan is set to Auto or manually switched to Off when necessary.
