When looking to cut costs, check out your ceiling fan for a simple solution. Sure you’re going to want to wipe off the blades, but after you pick up the dust bunnies, the savings are worth your time.

In the summer, use the ceiling fan in the counterclockwise direction. While standing directly under the ceiling fan you should feel a cool breeze.

The airflow produced creates a wind-chill effect, making you “feel” cooler. In the winter, 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!

“While changing out my toxic light bulbs in my office, and upgrading my room to LED lighting, Andy explained to me how to use my fan. The subtle change helped us save money in our bill each month.” – Tyler G, Happy Home owner.
