Baby, it's cold outside!

We've had a couple chilly evenings lately here in Georgia.  My husband and I have not had to use the heat yet but it won't be long.  In the meantime, we (read: HE) have remembered to reverse our ceiling fans which seems to have made a difference.

Like every year, I either forget or cannot remember which setting does what.  To recap for the 25th time:  Spinning Counter-Clockwise: Makes a room cooler by blowing the air downward.  Spinning Clockwise: Makes a room warmer by creating subtle updraft which pushes the warm air near the ceiling down along the walls and into the room.   Remember to turn fan off (wait for it to stop spinning) before flipping the switch.  While it's off, take the opportunity to dust/clean.  You'll be surprised what collected up there!

Stay warm!
