Ceiling fans help with heating and cooling

I like to thoroughly clean my house over the winter. The winter weather in my local area is extremely cold and snowy. When there’s six feet of snow on the ground and the temperature drops down to negative fifteen degrees, I’m in no hurry to spend time outside. It’s the perfect opportunity to meticulously scrub every corner, crevice and surface of the living space. I move furniture, launder the curtains, sort through drawers and wash windows. I wipe down ceiling lights, walls, baseboards and shelves. I empty the refrigerator, clean the inside of the oven, clean the dryer vent and drain the water heater. This past winter, I set up a ladder in the living room to clean the light fixture. When I climbed the ladder, the temperature was obviously much warmer near the ceiling of the room. Standing on the floor, I was tempted to raise the thermostat setting. Standing on the top step of the ladder, I got sweaty. That told me that the very expensive heat produced by the furnace was rising straight up to the ceiling and not falling back down until it cooled off. I looked into ways to solve this problem and decided to install ceiling fans in the main rooms of the home. I discovered that there are all sorts of sizes, styles and prices of ceiling fans. I was able to customize my choices to suit the decor and needs of the specific room. With a little help from my husband, I was able to handle the installation on my own. During the winter months, I set the ceiling fan blades to spin clockwise. This direction pulls cool air up toward the ceiling and displaces the heat that rises up. In the summer, I revere the direction of the fan blades. Having them spin counterclockwise creates a cool breeze and helps to keep room temperature consistent.
