The rotation of the blade should be set tocounterclockwise for cooling and clockwise for redistribution of warm air during the heating season. Ceiling fans can be used in conjunction with your heating and cooling system.

How does the direction of spin affect a fan?
The fan blades should be turned counterclockwise in the summer. You’ll get a cooling “wind chill” effect on your skin when that pushes air downwards. During the winter season, the fan should be rotating in a clockwise direction. The cool air is pulled up and the warm air is pushed down.
Do ceiling fans really help in the winter?
The moving fan blades make a room feel cooler than it really is. It is possible to lower your thermostat by 4 degrees if you run a ceiling fan.
Does it matter which way your fan blows?
In the summer, the blades of the ceiling fan push cooler air down into a column. This is the best direction for a ceiling fan to go because it makes the air feel cooler. The thermostat can be turned up a few degrees.
Why do fans look like they spin backwards?
When the speed of rotation is so fast that a new blade moves nearly into the position occupied by a blade in the previous frame, it’s called the backward motion illusion. It appears that the propeller did not turn at all if the timing is correct.
Why do fans run in anticlockwise direction?
The motor has a counter clockwise motion. The blades of the fan are attached to the motor and it’s counter clockwise direction causes the blades to move in the anti clockwise direction. The fan rotates in a counter clockwise direction because of the motor rotation.
How can I cool down my room fast?
You can spread the cool temperatures in your room by placing a shallow bowl of ice, ice packs or a frozen hot water bottle behind your fan. If you want to keep cool at night, you can use a spray bottle of chilled water and a small fan.
Is it better to point a fan up or down?
It is better to point the fan out than it is to point it in a certain direction. The fan motor will cause some heat to be dissipated when the air is blown out.
Should fan face in or out window?
