Ceiling Fans

Should My Ceiling Fan Spin Clockwise or Counterclockwise?

Grogg’s offers ceiling fans that come with a reversible switch, allowing you to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

When it’s hot outside, the airflow should be downwards. This creates a cooling effect through wind chill when the fan is set on medium or high and the blades are turning counter-clockwise.

When the outdoor temperature is cold, the fan should spin the reverse direction (clockwise). This draws the air upwards, and forces warm air that has risen downwards.

Think of a ceiling fan like a lightswitch; it’s only useful while you’re in the room, so remember to turn it off after you leave the room to conserve energy. A ceiling fan doesn’t produce cool air, only making you feel cooler.
