Running your ceiling fan in reverse will help you enjoy the full effect of your home’s heat, and can actually save you up to 10% on heating costs this winter
Fans in Winter?! Most people think fans help keep you cool, and they do, but there is more to it than that. Many ceiling fans come with a handy switch that reverses the direction that the blades spin. However, if you don’t have it, you can get it now by calling your local electrician. Standard, counter-clockwise rotations create a cooling breeze for warmer weather. Clockwise spinning, on the other hand, causes the warm air that pools near the ceiling (because heat rises, of course!), to circulate back down into your living space. Running your ceiling fan in reverse will help you enjoy the full effect of your home’s heat, and can actually save you up to 10% on heating costs this winter.
During the long winter, you need to make use of every possible tool available in your house to help you stay warm. That is why so many homeowners now use ceiling fans. Efficient ceiling fan models can even help circulate air without a large increase in your electricity bill, so it would be wise to reach out to a local electrical service similar to MZ Electric (https://mzelectric.com/electrical/). Correspondingly, if your home is too cold in the winter, it might be time to consider installing a ceiling fan, or replacing an old, inefficient model. To learn more about the benefits of installing a ceiling fan, take a look at some of the useful resources on the Aardvark Electric, Inc. website here: aardvark-electric.com/electrical-services/ceiling-fans/.
