How to Save Energy with a Ceiling Fan

Change Your Ceiling Fan Rotation to Save Home Energy

Did you know your ceiling fan can help you save on energy costs?

All you have to do is reverse the direction of the blades spin twice a year.

For winter you want them to turn clockwise. This will help the warm air that rises to circulate throughout the entire room.

In summer, counterclockwise will help keep the room cool.

Reversing the spin is easy. See this switch? Just turn it up or down, left or right, depending on the make and model of your fan.

Turn the fan back on low to make sure it’s spinning correctly and that’s it, a new spin on air circulation.
