Which direction should my ceiling fan spin?

Winter/Summer Modes Enhance Ceiling Fan Functionality

Counterclockwise in the Summer -

A Pleasant, Gentle Breeze

In the summer, Westinghouse ceiling fans keep your home pleasantly cool. The ceiling fan runs counterclockwise, and sets the air in motion. The airflow creates a wind chill effect on your skin. Summer mode allows you to lower energy costs while keeping you cool.


Clockwise in the Winter -

Increase Comfort Level

In the winter, Westinghouse ceiling fans can be switched
to the clockwise direction. As a result, the warm air that collects near the ceiling is distributed evenly throughout the room and eliminates cold spots and drafts. It dramatically increases your comfort level and decreases heating costs.
