Do Ceiling Fans Really Help in the Winter?
While ceiling fans may seem like a staple in the summer months, they are actually just as beneficial during the fall and winter seasons. Depending on which direction your ceiling fan is spinning, you can adequately keep your space cool or warm. This is also an energy-efficient option to help you maintain your home's comfort while reducing your heating and cooling bills.
Which Way Should a Ceiling Fan Turn?
- Summer – Your fan should turn in a counterclockwise direction during the warmer months. This helps the cool air to circulate down, helping to lower the temperature and cool the room.
- Winter – Change your fan to rotate clockwise. This allows the warmer air to be evenly distributed throughout the space, by bringing the warm air down and cooler air up, often referred to as an updraft. It's important to note that in winter you should keep your fan at a low speed.
Depending on the type of fan you have, you can change the direction by either flipping a switch on the ceiling fan, clicking a remote or even updating it through an app for newer smart home fans.
