Do you have a ceiling fan or two or three in addition to your air conditioner? In the south, we need all the help we can get to keep things cool in the summer. But are you using your fan correctly? Here’s what you need to know.
Most people think of ceiling fans as cooling tools only, but they have other benefits.
Many people don’t know that you can change the direction of the rotation of your ceiling fan. Why? Because the direction of the fan affects the temperature of the room. In the winter, you want your fan to rotate clockwise, pulling the air up and helping keep it circulated throughout the space. In the summer, you want the fan to turn counterclockwise, pushing the air down and creating a cooling effect.
It’s hard to live without air conditioning in the summer, especially in the south. But there are some ways to make your AC more effective and more efficient. A ceiling fan is a great way to boost your comfort. Just make sure it’s rotating counterclockwise for the greatest cooling.
