Save Money on Heating Costs With a Simple Flip of a Switch


Is your ceiling fan flowing in the right direction? One simple switch will save you money and keep you warm this winter.
Every ceiling fan has a switch or chain that allows you to change the direction that the blades turn.
The clockwise rotation moves the warm air out and and around the room, keeping you warm on those cold wintry nights.
And since you're already on the ladder, this is a good time to dust the ceiling fan. Just grab an old pillow case to catch the dust.

    Can someone please demonstrate how to use the pillowcase? Call me dumb, but I still get the dirt all over my floor. Obviously, I'm doing something wrong. HELP!

      Once you get your fan blades cleaned, wipe them with a dryer sheet.
