:199 Fan Direction

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:199 EcoTip: Ceiling fans can reduce summer air conditioning costs by increasing evaporative cooling on the skin and allowing you to run the AC at a higher temperature setting. During the summer, operate your ceiling fan so that it is blowing air downward. To check to see if it is rotating in the correct direction – stand directly beneath the fan while it operates on high. If you feel a breeze, the blades are spinning in the correct direction.
