July's Home Maintenance Tip:
Change the direction of your ceiling fans

With the summer months quickly approaching and the need of fans to keep you cool in the Central Valley, this tip will be a great energy bill saver for you! By simply flipping the switch on your fan to rotate counterclockwise in the summer, this will push the cool air down. Increasing the effectiveness of cooling your home.  In the winter, you would want to have your fan rotate clockwise.  By running your fan correctly in the winter you could save up to 10% on your heating bill.  The switch is often located near the motor box on your fan and is pretty easy to find.  Good luck and definitely give this a try!
