It is official, our "second" summer here in New York is over and we are going to see some below-average high temperatures over the next couple of days.

With cold weather coming, many people will turn on their furnaces for the first time in months.

If you are looking to save some money on your heating bill, there is one thing you NEED to do. This little trick not only will help keep you warm but also save you some money on your heating bill.

We all know that hot air rises and if you could recycle that air into your house, you would be able to stay warm and wouldn't have to run your furnace as much.

If you have ceiling fans, the good is that you can recycle the warm air. Not many people know but there is a button on most ceiling fans that allows 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.
