Ceiling fans are a great way to save money in the winter and summer. In the winter months it is best to have the direction set to clockwise at a low speed which causes the fan blades to push the warmer air down into the room. This process will help keep you comfortable while lowering your winter heating bill by 10-15%.
In the summer the fans should be turning counter clockwise to create a downward air flow. Although this won’t lower the room temperature, it does provide a breeze which cools the skin and makes the room feel 6-8 degrees cooler.
