With no further introduction, hands-on this tip and Save Electricity Texas Summertime 4 with your ceiling fan.

Many years ago, I thought that there was no difference in how the ceiling fans rotate. Here is the difference.

Summertime. Make the rotation in the direction that will push the air down. Many years ago, I thought that this was to make the airflow throughout the house and help the A/C work fewer times. Well, this is not the main reason, this is for the air to touch our skin thus we feel cooler. With this said, we do not need to have the A/C thermostat at lower temperatures. So, turn on the ceiling fans and raise the A/C thermostat temperature one or 2 degrees.

Remember that one-degree difference on your A/C will transform into $20 - $30 per month.

Wintertime. In wintertime we rarely use ceiling fans, however, this can help too. Rotation needs to be set in the opposite direction. This will push up and then down the hot air coming from the furnace. Most of our air ducts are up high close to the ceiling. Hot air is light and the ceiling fan pushing the air and circulates throughout the house.

Here is a quick video on how to change the direction of your ceiling fan.
