Winter Ceiling Fan Use
Did you remember to change the direction on your ceiling fans this winter? CLOCKWISE (as you look up at the fan).
Set the blades of your ceiling fan to rotate clockwise at a low speed to push the warm air down from the ceiling where it rises. It'll help keep you warm and toasty and give your heating system a little help too. A gentle updraft is created by changing the direction the blades rotate. This updraft forces warm air near the ceiling down into the space we live in.
This is in contrast to counter-clockwise in the summer. When the ceiling fan rotates in this direction the air is blown straight down. The higher the speed, the cooler it will help you stay. Don't worry, we'll remind you to switch it back this summer!
