Ceiling fans can cut your heating bills quite a bit in summer by making use of evaporation! A flow of air against your sweaty skin makes you feel much cooler. In summer, you'll want your fan to blow downward. If you're standing under the fan looking up, this means it will be turning counter-clockwise. If you feel a breeze blowing on you, you've done it right! Otherwise, click your toggle switch to the other side.
