Hellar ceiling fan
When we recommend this product
Use of the ceiling fan in winter, well, seems a bit strange to some, but actually it too can save you money on your heating bills. Heat rises. A large amount of heated air can collect in a large room with high ceilings before it can even be felt. In cold climates, where possible, heater vents are put in the floor. This is the most effective way to heat a room, because the air will rise.
In the summer, ceiling fans are very effective at lowering the apparent temperature by making use of evaporation. When you are hot, you perspire, perhaps only a small amount. This is the body's way of cooling off - Evaporation of the perspiration pulls heat away from your body. Circulation of the air rapidly increases evaporation. The more evaporation, the cooler the apparent temperature.
How to get the most from this product
In Winter, with the reverse switch set for an upward airflow (clockwise), running your fan on low speed will force the heat accumulated at the ceiling down along the walls where it must rise again. This mild circulation of air provides a more evenly heated room, shortening the time it takes the heater to work. (Low speed is highly recommended to avoid drafts.)
In Summer, with the reverse switch set for a downward airflow, in almost all cases this is counter-clockwise (looking up), running your ceiling fan on high speed creates a turbulent column of air. Using your ceiling fan during summer will reduce your need for aircon thus saving you dollars.
