No one enjoys feeling hot and miserable during the summer months, especially inside your own home; but keeping the AC working overtime costs a lot of energy dollars. You can cut costs and still be comfortable by raising the thermostat five degrees and using ceiling fans whenever you’re in a room. The air circulating around you will help make the room seem cooler than it actually is, believe it or not, by disrupting the envelope of heat surrounding your body! This simple trick helps you keep your cool and save money, too. Just make sure the fan is rotating in the proper direction. When standing under the fan and looking up, the blades should spin counterclockwise.
