Home Repair & Remodeling : How to Set Ceiling Fan Direction for Winter

Hi I'm Tim Gipson, and I'm going to talk to you about how to set your ceiling fan for winter

Now there's two modes of operation in your ceiling fan One will make it run clockwise And then the other will make it run counterclockwise And you can see, you've got a pitch So when it's running in the clockwise position, what it's doing is it's pushing air down

So it's circulating air down and up around the sides And that is the circulation that we want to have for summertime Okay, you want to pull that warm air down, you want to mix it with the cooler air, and you want to keep that circulating to keep a more comfortable temperature in your room However, in the winter, we want to do just the opposite We want to take the warm air that's trapped and we want to circulate it back down into the room

Okay? So how we do that is we're actually going to set this so it runs in counterclockwise, and it actually pulls air up from the center of the room and then it will cascade the warmer air down over the other side And a big part of that is usually your sitting areas are around the periphery of the room And so you want that comfortable air, in the winter, being brought down around you And in the summer, you want the warm air being pulled away from you So to do that on your ceiling fan, each ceiling fan has a switch on the side

Now if it's in the down position, it's set for summer operation So all you have to do is you slide it in the up position And if you happen to have a ceiling fan that's on a switch, then you can turn it on, and you should see that the direction of the bevel is now rotating where the air is going to be pushed up towards the center of the room And all ceiling fans are pretty much like that, where you have that switch on the side So, again, down will be for summer setting

Switch it up for your winter setting And that's all you have to do So I'm Tim Gipson, and that's how to set your ceiling fan for a winter operation
