Which way are your ceiling fan blades rotating???

So you have a ceiling fan that is helping you save money, or so you think! Did you know that ceiling fans have a little switch on them that determine which way the blades are going to rotate making your home warmer or cooler?

The blades are tipped slightly up for a reason... during the colder months, you should have them rotating clockwise which circulates the air in the room making it warmer, but during the hotter months you should have them rotating counterclockwise which will help push the air down to make you feel cooler.

Check your fan to see which way the blades are rotating to save big time on your energy bill. You may be costing yourself unnecessary money by running the ac when you really don't need it or even worse, making your air conditioner work harder to cool your home! :)
