Yes, I’m talking about spreading the warmth. Literally.
Winter weather has arrived in the south, I’m sorry to say.
We are not supposed to get above 44 degrees for the next five days. Lows will be around 20 degrees.
Now, that you’ve heard my weather forecast. And, in fact, it’s going to be a cold one from here on out. All I have to say is: “Why… oh why, oh why?” What did we do to deserve this Arctic Blast?
I’m going tomorrow to get a heated snuggle blanket. I think I will need it before this winter is over. Oh, I forgot. It’s NOT even winter yet.
This afternoon, I went to change the rotation of my ceiling fans. To my surprise, they have been on Winter rotation all Summer long. Geesh!
Here are the correct ceiling fan rotations for Winter & Summer.
During winter heating, to help move warm air that is trapped on the ceiling, blades should turn ‘forward’ in a clockwise motion. This movement will push up the air and pull the warm trapped air down the sides of the room improving heat distribution.
During hot summer weather, to help produce a comfortable breeze or ‘windchill’ that cools the skin, blades should rotate in a ‘reverse’ counter-clockwise motion. The air movement has the same comfortable effect as when you fan yourself with a magazine to get relief from hot, stifling air.
