UPDATE: Counterclockwise Fan Direction for Cool Summer Savings. In the summer, ceiling fans should rotate counterclockwise to push cool air down to the floor. The cool air evaporates perspiration and creates a wind chill effect, which makes you feel cooler without affecting the room temperature. Clockwise Fan Direction for Warm Winter Comfort. In the winter, ceiling fans should rotate clockwise at a low speed to pull cool air up. The gentle updraft pushes warm air, which naturally rises to the ceiling, down along the walls and back the floor. GUEST ROOM FINAL REVEAL HERE
Why have a ceiling fan?
Hi there everyone! Not sure what your thoughts and opinions are on ceiling fans in the bedroom. I see nowadays a lot of folks are going with the chande look. Which btw, I love that look too. However, we also love and need our ceiling fans. Why have a ceiling fan? For one ceiling fans save you money. Ceiling fans can save quite a bit of energy if summer users raise air conditioning thermostats. Running the AC in the summer can get very expensive and jack up your electric bill. Ceiling fans circulate the air creating a light breeze. We especially like this in the summer time. I hate being frigid from air conditioning. Ceiling fans definitely alleviate that. Ceiling fans were around longer than AC units. Back in the day they were used on porches so you could enjoy the outdoor humid evenings. Ceiling fans are available in different finishes, styles and materials, so you can find the perfect accessory no matter what style of home decor you’ve selected. They also provide a source of lighting for the room. *this is a sponsored/paid post, however, all opinions are authentic and my own*. I chose Build.com for my shopping and viewing experience while researching for ceiling fans. Build.com is well-known for it’s customer service and their on-site resources for people looking to improve their homes. On each product page, there are different sections with PDF instructions, installation videos, Q&A, reviews, and product specialist contact information help. Our guest room is in the midst of an overhaul. The first thing I needed to replace was the ceiling fan. It was outdated. Back a few years ago, I did however, jazz it up with my diy drumshade for a ceiling fan. It did the trick for the past 8 years but it’s time for a change. Plus as you can see from the above it was brushed silver and after replacing the floors in the bedrooms, it was not a nice compliment to the lovely flooring. I absolutely love the style and selection I found at Build.com.
We moved south and now have 15, yes, fifteen, fans, inside and out. The movement of the air is such a pleasure and keeps us from turning on the air. There’s something nostalgic and romantic about a fan during warm weather. Merry Christmas.
Thank you! Same to you. 15 WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW LOL!
I did not read anything about the reverse of the fans in the winter and in the summer. My hubby and I always disagree which way the fans should be going in the summer and in the winter? Debbie?
Read the comments, someone just mentioned that Jeanie..you should do it the opposite way in the winter. I don’t think my husband and I have ever did that, but I am going to try it tonight:)
Counterclockwise for Summer.
Clockwise Fan Direction for Warm Winter Comfort.
I just looked it up and added to the post. Thanks ladies. We all learned a little more something today.
I have 5 ceiling fans and I too love the movement of air that they provide. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Merry Christmas to you too Jessie!
I’ve also learned that most fans have a switch to reverse the direction of the blades. This helps to circulate the warm air that rises to the ceiling in the winter, helping to keep you warm and decreasing heating bills. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! I look forward to seeing more of your posts in the upcoming year
Yes, great point you make Linda! I never thought of that option, but yes, our fans do the same. Thanks. Merry Christmas to you too! XO
i love the fans ialso do what Linda does use it in reverse for winter helps the heat flow .i will be looking for a new fan on this site thanks Deb 🙂
I think some of the TV shows gave ceiling fans a bad rap a while back. We have one over the bed and I love it.
Really? That is cray cray! Who watches TV anyway lol! Merry Christmas Bliss.
We use ceiling fans in every room except dinning and living rooms. Just love them. I have 12 foot ceilings and master is pretty long so have 2 fans inn there. Have 2 on back porch and couldn’t live without them for sure.
Fans are a must have! Love yours!
I absolutely love the fan but I was wondering if you could share the name of the paint color for the bedroom ? I have such an awful time finding the right color and LOVE the color of your walls!!
The color is cappuccino by restoration hardware. We took the swatch to Benjamim moore to color match and use their paint.
thank you so much for sharing!
