Did you know your ceiling fan has had a hot and cold setting that can be switched??

There's a switch on every ceiling fan that switches your fan from a "warm air" setting to a "cool air" setting.

Here's what the switch actually does: A ceiling fan should rotate counterclockwise in the summer so that the blades push air down in a column. You are cooled by the wind chill effect. Ceiling fan direction in winter should be clockwise and the fan should run at the lowest speed. This pulls cool air up, which in turn displaces the warm air that rises and collects near the ceiling.

In short, your fan should spin counterclockwise if you want cool air and clockwise if you want warm air. Now go and spread the news!!
