Good day, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors, and today I want to talk to you about how to help distribute the heat in your home with ceiling fans. Now when it comes to this you want to make sure that you have the proper setting for the right season. Easiest way to tell which way the air is blowing is to turn it on, walk underneath it and see if the air is blowing down, if it's blowing down you want to change it to where the air is blowing up to help move that heat around from the top of your ceiling down. That way you don't lose it through the top of the ceiling but you can actually use it through the house and save on energy cost. What I like to do is I like to strategically place ceiling fans through the house, that way I can get a good air flow through it without just using one fan. So I'll put one in the living room, one in the dining room, one in the kitchen. That way there's constant air movement through the house. Now when you're running the ceiling fan through the summer you want to make sure that you're running counter clockwise. What this does is it pushes the air down, that way you can get a nice flow through the room of cool air. Now through the winter time you want to run it clockwise. That will pull all the air up and force that hot air down through the room and get a nice circulation of that hot air going. Now when it comes to switching the direction it's very simple. Just a flip of the switch and the fans will start moving the other way. Make sure you don't do this when the fan is in motion, it could wear out your motor. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors and we just discussed how to help distribute the air in your home with ceiling fans. Thanks for watching, good luck with this project.
