Why we do this:
Switching the direction on your ceiling fan is important for various reasons. Ceiling fans typically have a switch that allows you to change the direction of the fan blades.
During the summer months, setting the fan to rotate counterclockwise creates a cooling effect by creating a breeze that helps to lower the perceived temperature in the room. This allows you to rely less on your air conditioning system and save on energy costs.
In the winter months, switching the fan direction to clockwise helps distribute warm air that naturally rises to the ceiling. The gentle updraft pushes the warm air down, evenly distributing it throughout the room, which can reduce heating costs and provide better comfort.
By adjusting the direction of your ceiling fan according to the season, you can optimize both cooling and heating efficiency in your home.
