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.
Make sure that your ceiling fan is strategically located. Fans work by pushing air around the room and onto you. When the air makes contact with your skin, your body will feel cooler than the room temperature. This is known as the wind chill effect and it is an effective way of beating hot days. The power of a ceiling fan is in it’s ability to cool people, not rooms. That’s why running a fan in an empty room won’t work, because it has no opportunity to keep anyone cool. Make your home environment feel comfortable by placing a fan in the most frequented rooms.
Does your house stay stuffy at night when the temperature has dropped outside? Try using a portable fan to exhaust hot air out of the house to bring the temperature down a few degrees. When hot air is guided outside, the decrease in pressure allows for cool air to flow more effectively. This simple tip should help your ceiling fan produce the best possible circulation...Give it a try!
Outdoor ceiling fans are wondrous things. They bring a light breeze to even the most humid days, allowing you to enjoy your patio without suffering for it. Though some wonder, “Why not put a regular, indoor ceiling fan outside? Why bother getting one that’s specially made for the outdoors?” Indoor fans are great – indoors. If you want to put a fan outside, it has to be ruggedized and protected against the elements. Only outdoor ceiling fans have this. Make sure to get the right fan for the job.
Indoor Ceiling Fans
An indoor fan is a delicate, beautiful thing, like a fluffy white cat. They brighten up any room they’re in with an extra level of elegance. However, that perfectly groomed fur wouldn’t last long in the dirt or rain. A wet cat would be just as out of place as a wet indoor fan.
Outdoor Ceiling Fans
An outdoor fan is gorgeous and tough, like a friendly golden retriever. Water dogs are a delight indoors, but
