How to Switch Your Ceiling Fan in the Summer


ceiling fan summer Summary: Ceiling Fan Motor and Blade Rotation Settings In the summer, a ceiling fan makes the air seem as much as eight degrees (Fahrenheit) cooler.

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.
