Summer Settings for a Ceiling Fan Motor and Blade Rotation
Ceiling Fans can help Save Energy During Summer
To enjoy the full cooling effects of
a ceiling fan, the fan should have reversible direction switch which is typically found on the center hub where the light fixture may be mounted.
Single-direction fans are generally useful only for cooling.
The air movement from a ceiling fan makes the occupants feel more
comfortable. Ceiling fans cool in the summer by wind chill.
In the summer, a ceiling fan makes the air seem as much as eight degrees (Fahrenheit) cooler.
The breeze of a ceiling fan can make a temperature of 78-80 degrees feel like 72, so the air conditioning thermostat can stay set at 78, resulting in
a lower electric bill.
