Good day, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors, and today I want to talk to you about the proper settings for your ceiling fans for winter and summer. When it comes to this you want to make sure you get the right one, that way you can save on that energy bill. Now, for summer time you want to run your ceiling fan counter clockwise. That will help distribute that nice cool air through the house and create a nice breeze. The way you do that is to kill the fan, kill the power at the switch, flip it back on and see which way the blades actually start to move. You want to make sure they're moving counter clockwise for the summer. Now for winter you want them to move clockwise. That will force all the air up and all your hot air that sits across the ceiling, you want to force that down, that way it's actually usable and not being lost up there. The way you do that is just the flick of the switch when the fan is off. Make sure you don't do it when the fan is on because it could ruin the motor on your fan and then you've got a lot more work to do. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors and we just discussed proper ceiling fan settings for winter and summer. Thanks for watching, good luck with this project.
