The next instalment in our seasonal selection of winter warming tips is a difficult one to believe but it really works! Usually your ceiling fan won’t see much action during the winter months – who wants to add more cold air into the mix?
However, amazingly your ceiling fan can actually be used to heat your home rather than cool it. The way it works is, when used normally, the angled blades on your fan spin anti-clockwise to push cold air down into the room and keep you cool. When spun the other way, the fan draws the cool air upwards. This pushes the hot air (which we all know rises) back down to the bottom and helps to keep the air warm.
