Ceiling Fans in Cooler Weather

Cooler weather is upon us, so it’s time to start thinking of changing the direction of your ceiling fan. Warm air rises, so turning the fan blades in a clockwise direction brings the air down. It will not only make you feel warmer but it will lower the cost of running your heater.

Winter Ceiling Fan Clockwise Direction

To change the direction of the blades:

Turn off the fan and wait for the blades to come to a complete stop.
Locate the direction switch on the fan housing. Flip the switch. Turn the ceiling fan back on and confirm direction.

If using a remote, stop the fan. When the blades have come to a complete stop, press the reverse button on the remote.
Turn the ceiling fan back on and confirm direction.
