It might be a weird question you never thought of, but there’s an answer. Google “What direction should a ceiling fan rotate?” and you’ll see articles from Home Depot, Consumer Reports and Southern Living.
According to “experts,” ceiling fans should rotate counterclockwise in the summer to blow air downward, making a room 4 degrees cooler and saving you air conditioning costs. In the winter, ceiling fans should rotate clockwise to send air upward, breaking up the warm air collecting near ceilings.
Add this to your big book of random facts, and enjoy saving on those air conditioning bills this summer.
