The heat is here! Do you change the direction of your ceiling fan based on the season? In the summer you should reverse your ceiling fan to a counterclockwise direction. This will change the airflow, pushing air down and creating a more cooling effect. If you’ve never done this, look for a small switch on the side of the base of your fan. Then remember to reverse it the other way in the cold weather. When it’s going a clockwise direction it will create an updraft and recirculate heat down. This is very helpful if you have wood burning stove, pellet stove, or fireplace and use your ceiling fan to help move heat around the house. But, we don’t have to worry about that right now, do we?!
