Winter Settings for a Ceiling Fan Motor and Blade Rotation
Ceiling Fans can help Save Energy During Winter.
To enjoy the full warming 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.
Ceiling fans warm in the winter by re circulating warm
air (which rises).
The difference in temperature
between warm air at the top of a room and
where people move around can be as much as
15 degrees (Fahrenheit).
By redistributing the
warm air, ceiling fans help heat up the occupied portion
of the room.
