Tip of the Week

It's that time of year when the weather gets colder and we've got to turn on the heat.  It can get pricey, and we've got a trick that can help you spare a few degrees on your thermostat:

If your ceiling fan has a reverse switch, flip it on after you've turned on your heat.  This will cause the fan's blades to turn in a clockwise direction.  The fan will push heated air down into the room, since heat rises, and you'll be able to keep your thermostat a couple degrees lower.  This is especially helpful in rooms with high ceilings!
