What Direction Should Ceiling Fan Turn in Winter Month?
In the winter, you want your ceiling fan to spin clockwise. A clockwise rotation creates an updraft, which moves cold air up and forces warm air down.
How Do You Reverse the Fan Direction?
First, turn your fan off. After the fan is no longer spinning, locate the toggle switch inside the fan motor and flip it. Once you turn the fan back on, it should be spinning clockwise.
Are There Other Benefits to Changing the Spin Direction?
The warm air that results should actually save you money, as it allows you to cut down on your furnace use. This should bring either your electricity or gas bill down during the winter months.
