If you are wanting to install some ceiling fans for the summer, you can do it by following this diy ceiling fan installation tutorial. You will learn everything you need to know from start to finish and be able to hang your own ceiling fans. They will allow you to bring heat down from the ceiling in winter and move the air around in the summer.
This in turn will allow you to use less energy by not needing to run the furnace or air conditioning as much. Heat rises so in the winter while you are running the furnace to keep warm a lot of the heat from it is staying up near the ceiling while you may feel chilly and keep the furnace at a higher temperature to try to keep warm. A ceiling fan can be set to pull that warm air down into the room allowing you to turn the thermostat down.
When you are trying to cool the room in summer, letting a ceiling fan circulate air will keep air flowing and this helps you to feel cooler so you can turn the setting on the air conditioner up. The tutorial is from Hammerzone and covers everything from what type of box you should have to hang the fan from to the wires and installing the ceiling fan and light fixture assembly with pictures to help you see the process.
