The weather this morning is cooler and Fall is in the air. While i was thinking about getting my home ready for the Fall and Winter months I remembered a great home tip I came across while reading All You Magazine’s December 2010 issue .
“Change the blade direction on your ceiling fan in the colder months. (from counter-clockwise to clockwise) creates an updraft that recycles heat throughout the room.”

I have lived in homes with wood heating my entire life and some how managed to miss this great advice. Most ceiling fans have a switch on them which you can use to change the directions of the fan’s spin. Don’t forget to clean your fan blades before reversing the direction, or you might have some unwelcome dust bunnies flung around the house.
