June 21st marks the first official full day of summer and there is one simple trick to help you stay cool all summer long while saving you some money since you won't have to run your AC unit as much.

Everyone is predicting that our cooling costs are going to increase in 2023 but if you do one simple thing you could end up saving some money and still feel nice and cool.

A simple switch of a button on your ceiling fan can help you stay cool and save some money.

Not many people know but there is a button on most ceiling fans that allow it to change direction. If you flip that switch and have rotation in reverse, instead of blowing cold air, it will take the warm air from the ceiling and push it down over the room.

In the Summer, you want to run your ceiling fan counter-clockwise to help push the air down and over you causing the cooling effect.

In the Winter, you want to run your ceiling fan in a clockwise direction. This allows the ceiling fan to pull the warm air from the top of the room and forces it down to where you are, helping you keep warm.

A simple flip of a switch can make a big difference in how warm or cool your room is. So this summer make sure your fans are rotating the correct way to keep you cool.
