Tuesday's Tip: Ceiling fans

With summer coming, anything that can help you keep cool and save money doing so is a great thing. If you have ceiling fans, now is a good time to make sure they are dusted and in working order.

Most fans also have a switch that can reverse the direction the blades spin. In warmer weather, you want the blades to turn counterclockwise to circulate cold air into the room. When the cooler air comes back in the fall, switch the fan to rotate clockwise to help warm the room.

By doing this, you can save energy and cut costs since running a fan requires less electricity than your heating and cooling system.
