Not only can a ceiling fan help cool you off in the summer but it can also help warm rooms in the winter. This will help you reduce your energy usage during the entire year.
Most modern ceiling fans have a switch on the side that allows you to change the direction the blades are spinning. During the summer you want the blades to spin counter-clockwise. This allows the fan to push the air downward, causing a cooling effect or a breeze. Contrary to popular belief, ceiling fans don’t actually cool down a room. They just make the people in the room feel cooler. Which means, when you aren’t in a room, turn the fan off! This will help you save more energy in the long run.
When winter comes, flip that switch on the side of the fan and let it run clockwise. Instead of pushing down the air in the room to cool everyone off, it will push the cool air higher giving everyone in the room more access to the warm air.
