How Do Ceiling Fans Work?
While it may feel like a fan produces cooling, it does not. Instead, ceiling fans create a gentle breeze that moves air over your skin. In the summertime, this wind chill effect helps cool you down. In the winter, fans keep heated air circulating and prevent heat from pooling at the ceiling as it rises.
- You may wonder if the blades are spinning in the right direction—it depends. During the hot summer months, your fan needs to rotate counterclockwise to push the airflow downward. Change the setting to reverse the blade direction and run it clockwise in the winter to draw in the colder air and push down the warmer air that naturally rises.
- When you leave a ceiling fan on in an unoccupied room, it’s just a waste of electricity. Someone has to be in the room to feel the circulating air because the fan itself doesn’t add any heating or cooling to the space.
- Lowering the thermostat a few degrees when you turn on the fan in the summer will help reduce your energy bills.
- If you ever saw a wobbly fan, it’s because the blades are out of balance. While the fan is unlikely to fall out of the ceiling, who wants to look at a wobbly fan?
- Bigger blades do a better job when it comes to pushing the airflow. At the same time, avoid installing a monster ceiling fan that dwarfs the rest of the room!

Consider the type of room and its size when choosing a fan for professional ceiling fan installation. Larger rooms require fans with wider blades and more wiring than smaller spaces. Different blade materials affect the noise level of ceiling fan operation.
