What direction should the blades turn during warm months and cold months? I was always told that the blades push the air down during warm months and pull air up during cold months.
And a mnemonic that I've used for years is the old nursery rhyme, "hickory, hickory dock, the mouse ran up the clock." Clockwise is therefor up!
Great question! Most people don't know that you can use a ceiling fan in both the winter and summer months. During the winter, set your ceiling fan to turn clockwise to move rising warm air, down into your room. When the weather heats up, set the fan to turn counter-clockwise for a cooling breeze. Hope this helps!
