October 24, 2008, Newsletter Issue #138: Ceiling Fans for Winter and Summer

Tip of the Week

Many people enjoy lighted ceiling fans in the summer. They provide cooling breezes while allowing people to enjoy fresh air, and they use less power than air conditioners. But did you know that ceiling fans can help keep your house warm in the winter?

This works best if you have high ceilings. Simply reverse the direction of your fan. Most ceiling fan lights have a switch that will let you do this, though you may need a yardstick or ladder to get at it.

Then turn the fan on at its lowest speed. Instead of pulling cool air up and into the center of the room, as it does in the summer, your fan is now pushing down the warm air that has gathered at the top of the room where no one can enjoy it.
