How do I know if my ceiling fan is going clockwise?

You can tell if your ceiling fan is spinning counterclockwise by watching the way the blades rotate. They should move from the top left, then down to the right, and then back up to the top. You should also feel air movement while standing under the fan. If you don’t, your fan is spinning clockwise.

How do I know which way my fan is?

Which way should a ceiling fan turn in the winter?

Summer = Counterclockwise; Winter = Clockwise

In the winter, the fan should spin the opposite direction: clockwise. This spin direction makes the blades create an updraft, sucking cold air up and forcing the room’s warmest air (remember, heat rises) downward toward the room’s occupants.

Which way should the fan spin in the summer?

During summer months, your ceiling fan blades should be set to spin counterclockwise. When your ceiling fan spins quickly in this direction, it pushes air down and creates a cool breeze. This helps keep a room’s temperature consistent throughout the day and reduces the need for an air conditioner to run constantly.

Which side of fan is exhaust?

If the fan blades look like the inside of a dish or bowl—that is, they’re curving toward you—that’s the exhaust side. (In other words, the concave side is where air exhausts.)
