Green Tip

Think your ceiling fans are useless now that summer's over? Think again.  Running your fans in the opposite direction (that would be clockwise instead of counter clockwise) helps push warm air back down. Essentially having the opposite effect of its original purpose. Doing so allows you to keep your thermostat at a lower temp, reducing your winter heating costs and lessening your environmental impact. Most fans should have a switch located above the blades that changes the direction of their spin.
