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.
