Want to reduce your power bill by making the most of your ceiling fan? Just make sure that you have it rotating the right way! There is a little switch on the base of the fan that will change the direction of rotation. Here’s what you need to know:
Cooling in Hot Weather: To help cool your house when it’s hot outside, make sure that your fan is rotating counter-clockwise on a high setting. You ought to feel a cool breeze when standing underneath the fan.
Keeping Warm in the Winter: To help your home stay warm in the cool winter months, your fan needs to be rotating clockwise on a low setting. When the blades are running in this direction, they circulate the warm air back down from the ceiling, making the most of your heating system.
