Don’t Flip on the Furnace, Flip on the Fan

I was amazed when I woke up this morning and found the temperature outside was 30 degrees. It was only two weeks ago that it was in the eighties! I didn’t want to turn the furnace back on so I opened the curtains and switched the direction of the ceiling fan.

Ceiling fans have two directions, but not all fans are made the same. Stand under the fan, if you feel the air blowing down on you that is the setting for summer. The other direction is for winter.  To make it easier on myself, I marked the fan with an “S” for summer and a “W” for winter, that way when the weather changes, I can tell at a glance if I have the fan going the correct direction.
