This one is all about your Ceiling Fan!

Quick Tip - Counterclockwise i nthe summer, Clockwise in the winter.

You'll save up to 40% on air conditing costs in the summer and 10% on heating cost in the winter by manging air flow with ceiling fan.

Most Energy star rated ceiling fans use only about as much power as a 100-watt incandescent bulb.  Setting the blade direction on your fan to run counterclockwise directs the air downward and creates a breeze; in the winer, running it clockwise will force cold air upward and warm air down to you.

Who would have thunk!
