- How to Change Your Ceiling Fan Rotation for Winter Time
- The experts claim that a ceiling fan should push the air straight down, essentially pulling the heat down to the cool areas of the room.
- However – I sincerely feel that it really depends on the characteristics of the room.
- Consider these Factors Before Adjusting the Direction Switch of Your Ceiling Fan
- Are there windows in the room? If not the walls will be warmer and create an upward air flow from the perimeter walls.
- Is there a fireplace or wood stove in the room, and how close is the ceiling fan.
- Is a chair or bed directly below the ceiling fan?
- Do the occupants of the room like the breeze coming down toward them, or do they prefer a more gentle distributed air flow coming from the outer walls of the room.
- Hopefully this will help you decide which way is best for you and you can be your own expert, go with what works for you!
