Energy Efficient Use of Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fan performance and energy savings rely
heavily on the proper installation and use of the ceiling
fan. Here are a few tips to ensure efficient product
performance.
Using the Ceiling Fan Year Round
Summer Season: Use the ceiling fan in the counterclockwise direction. The airflow produced by the ceiling
fan creates a wind-chill effect, making you “feel” cooler.
Select a fan speed that provides a comfortable breeze,
lower speeds consume less energy.
Winter Season: Reverse the motor and operate the ceiling
fan at low speed in the clockwise direction. This produces
a gentle updraft, which forces warm air near the ceiling
down into the occupied space.Remember to adjust your
thermostat when using your ceiling fan - additional energy
and dollar savings could be realized with this simple step!
Choosing the Appropriate Mounting Location
Ceiling fans should be installed, or mounted, in the middle
of the room and at least 7 feet above the floor and 18
inches from the walls. If ceiling height allows, install the fan
8 - 9 feet above the floor for optimal airflow. Consult your
Fanimation Retailer for optional mounting accessories.
Turn Off When Not in the Room
Ceiling fans cool people, not rooms. If the room is
unoccupied, turn off the ceiling fan to save energy.
Electrical and Structural Requirements
Your new ceiling fan will require a grounded electrical
supply line of 120 volts AC, 60 Hz, 15 amp circuit. The
outlet box must be securely anchored and capable of
withstanding a load of at least 50 lbs. Figure 1 depicts
different structural configurations that may be used for
mounting the outlet box.
Ceiling
▲WARNING
Ceiling
Joists
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal
injury, mount fan to outlet box marked acceptable for
fan support. Use screws supplied with outlet box. Most
outlet boxes commonly used for support of light fixtures
are not acceptable for fan support and may need to be
replaced. Consult a qualified electrician if in doubt.

▲WARNING
Figure 1
Turning off wall switch is not sufficient. To avoid
possible electrical shock, be sure electricity is turned
off at the main fuse box before wiring. All wiring must
be in accordance with National and Local codes and the
ceiling fan must be properly grounded as a precaution
against possible electrical shock.
▲WARNING
To avoid fire or shock, follow all wiring instructions
carefully. Any electrical work not described in these
instructions should be done or approved by a licensed
electrician.
