Fall is the perfect time to change the rotation of your ceiling fan. Use your ceiling fan to save energy on heating bills by setting it at a low speed in a clockwise rotation. This mixes the warm air trapped at the ceiling with cooler air at the bottom of the room – warming up the living space.
To help understand, lie on your back looking up at your fan. Imagine the spinning blades are the arms of a clock. If those blades are moving clockwise, that’s the winter heat setting. If they’re moving counter-clockwise, that’s the summer cool setting.
