One Thing Everyone in Minnesota Should Do to Their Ceiling Fans in the Summer

I’ve been trying to come up with some tasks for my teenagers to do now that school is out  Every day, there is one easy cleaning task for them to tackle.

To help with this cleaning frenzy, I was looking for a checklist to work off and came across a tip that I'd never heard before.  Our ceiling fans need to be rotated so they spin in different directions - one way in the summer and one way in the winter.

Check Your Ceiling Fans and Make Sure They Are Twirling in the Correct Direction in the Summer and Winter

If you are a newbie to this ceiling fan news, here's what you need to know:

  • During the Summer - your fan should turn counterclockwise.  This direction will help cool our homes.
