  They are quiet and help to circulate air making a room more comfortable in any season.

Did you know that the direction of a ceiling fan's blade rotation makes a difference on the flow of air in a room?  Well it does.  If you look at the blades on a fan you will notice that the blades are on an angle.  This angle is important to help pull up air in a room or to push it down. 

Real Estate Delaware County PaMost ceiling fans are designed the same, in that if it goes counter clockwise it will push down on the air in a room and if it goes clockwise it will push the air up against the ceiling which then bounces down in a room.

During the summer months, set the blades to move counter clockwiseso the air is being pushed down, forcing the air to have direct contact with a person's skin. 

In the winter, have the blades goes clockwise, so the warm and cold air are set in motion, blending the two, making a warmer room. The current is a subtle current due to it bouncing off the ceiling.

To change the direction of the blades, turn off the fan, look for a switch that is located on the base of the unit close to the ceiling, and flip the switch.
