Okay, I have a confession to make! I can't believe myself! We just bought a ceiling fan last weekend for our bonus room and it was turning counterclockwise and we were like WOW, that is cool! I said OOPS, it is going the wrong direction! So my husband flipped the switch and "fixed" it! LOL It wasn't cool anymore. I said well it supposed to be clockwise for the summer and vice versa for the winter! Boy, how wrong I was!!! Embarrassed! I went to my friends house yesterday and ironically she had bought a new ceiling fan also for her guest room! Guess what? Her fan was turning the "wrong" direction to me also! Then, DUH (and seriously, I am not normally this stupid), well, I MUST BE WRONG, not everyone else and the breeze coming from the fan!!! So I looked it up to confirm my "wrong-ness" and yep! It read "MOST ceiling fans turn for a cool breeze counterclockwise in the summer and vice versa the winter!" Well, it is almost the end of summer here and we finally have all our fans going to the Real "RIGHT" way! Thank goodness! We DID lower our bill from last year to this year with better blinds and thick curtains, just IMAGINE how great it would have been if all the fans were turning the correct way! We were fighting ourselves! LOL
Anywho, I almost need a jacket now!!! Seriously!
Check you fans! :-)
(Again, these directions are for MOST fans, it depends on the tilt of the blade, probably as long as you don't have something super fancy the directions above will work for you! And if all else fails, go with your gut! Is it cooler?)
