Are Your Ceiling Fan Blades Spinning the Correct Direction?
Ceiling Fan Blade Direction for Summer and Winter: In the summer, spin the blades counterclockwise. In the winter, spin the blades clockwise.
In the summer, turn the ceiling fan counterclockwise to help create a downdraft, which creates a direct, cooling breeze. In the winter, turn your fan clockwise to create an updraft and circulate warm air around the room.

Ceiling Fan Blade Direction in Summer
Ceiling fan blade direction during summer should be counterclockwise. This correctly creates a downdraft to keep cool air close to the lower area of your room. Counterclockwise is the fan blades spinning to the left. As you stand under your ceiling fan, the blades move from top left, down right, then back to top. You’ll feel air movement blowing down on you.
Ceiling Fan Blade Direction in Winter
Ceiling fan blade direction during winter should be clockwise. This correctly creates an updraft to properly keep warm air circulating around your room. Clockwise is the fan blades spinning to the right. As you stand under your ceiling fan, the blades move from top right, down left, then back to top. If you don’t feel air blowing down you, it’s spinning clockwise.
