About Ceiling Fan Installation
Ceiling Fans Circulate the Air
During the summer, your ceiling fan basically creates an indoor breeze, cooling your skin as the passing air evaporates perspiration. This can make a room feel noticeably cooler. To create this effect, the fan must be blowing air down into the room. This occurs when the fan spins counter-clockwise, with upturned edges pushing air down.
Use the reverse button to change the direction of airflow during the winter. This will help keep your family warm by circulating warm air up and back down through the room. The fan blades should be spinning clockwise, with downturned edges of the blades leading air up and out. If the blades are left to spin counter-clockwise, as they are in the summer, the wind chill effect will make you feel colder during the winter.
Use Less Electricity
It costs much less to operate a ceiling fan than an air conditioner or furnace. You can feel cooler while spending less on energy with a fan. Fans don’t do anything outside of the room where they are spinning, so turn them off if you leave the room.
