I winter it blows up to catch the warm air from the ceiling and bring it down. In summer it blows down to cool you off by evaporation.

I have Hawkins ceiling fan. How do I switch blade directions - between warm weather (counter clockwise) & cool weather (clockwise)?


Clockwise on high for Summer. Counter Clockwise on slowest speed for Winter, to get the heat off the ceiling. A good way to remember which direction it should go from season to season , is by the directional switch on the side of the fan.. Switch Up for Winter. Switch Down for Summer.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

How to set humidistat for different seasons.


Vick, depending on the season and the humidity level in your home, is what determines the setting. For example, in the winter you want to maintain at least a 40% humidity level in your home. It will feel more comfortable, the heat will feel warmer and it will help keep static electricity at bay. In the Summer, you'll want to remove as much humidity as possible, as this will make the air feel cooler. If you have ceiling fans in you home, run them Clockwise at the highest speed you can tolerate. The more wind chill you generate, the cooler the air will feel and you won't have to set your AC at a lower temperature. Thereby, saving money. In the winter, run the ceiling fans Counterclockwise on the lowest speed. This will take the heat off the ceiling, wash the walls and bring it back down.

Clockwise and Counterclockwise are determined by looking up at the fan blades. Also, reversible ceiling fans have a switch on the side (where the pull chain is located). Generally, switch-up is Counterclockwise and switch down is Clockwise.

Hope this helps you to keep your home comfortable year round.

Clockwise, counterclockwise which is the summer setting?


Ceiling Fan Direction These recommendations depend actually on the height and size of the room; the season; and the activity taking place in the room.

The basic fact of nature is that warm air rises to the top and cold air settles on the bottom. Air settles in layers from warm at the top to cold at the bottom, if left alone at equilibrium.

Ceiling fan recommendations:

In the winter
Set the fan to run counterclockwise (reverse; this looks clockwise as you are looking up). This will redirect the warm air from the ceiling and down the walls and into the living space where the people actually are. In a house, you would run the fan at a low speed so that you don't actually cool the warm air that you are moving downward. If you have a high ceiling, or are trying to heat a hall or a church, you may want to increase the fan speed so that the warm air will reach the living space as long as the fan speed does not create an unwanted downdraft at the people below. In the summer
In a room of normal height (8 - 10 ft), you should operate your fan so that it turns clockwise (this looks counterclockwise as you are looking up), causing a more directed downdraft, especially with the fan running slightly faster. This causes a wind-chill effect because the skin evaporates slight amounts of water from the sweat glands and thereby provides cooling through the skin's surface. However, the air is only moved but not cooled! You may find that you can turn your thermostat down a degree or two and save more money on energy costs. The air blowing down won't actually cool the room though, so you should turn the fan off when there are no people (or animals) in the room. In a high hall or church
It may be best NOT to run the fans at all in summer. This lowers the demand for cooling since the hot layer on top is an excellent insulation between the cool air near the floor (and the people) and the hot roof and outside.

A large, tall manufacturing hall would typically have different goals. There one would have a floor full of heat producing machinery plus the people operating it, working hard and welcoming a bit of a breeze. Then it would make sense to run the fans at fairly high speed to create a certain and directed downdraft. And with the shifts going throughout the days of the week, the fans should be running all the time and maybe in all seasons.

Finally, fans typically use 80-100 watts. When used properly, ceiling fans can really help to optimize the comfort level of the people and save energy and money.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer

Does the switch to change the direction of the fan need to be up or down to pull warm air down


In the winter you would want the fan turningclockwise and on most ceiling fans it is in the up position. and in the summer you want it in the down position running counter clockwise creating a wind chill effect.

On the body of the fan motor is a small sliding switch(up and down), if you cannot reach it you can use a broomstick to carefully change it's position.
