One easy way to get ready for the Arizona heat

With one hundred degree weather coming soon every little bit helps when you’re trying to keep cool. One simple way someone could help with their electric bill is to turn their ceiling fans to “summer” mode. Not everyone knows this but, ceiling fans have a summer and winter mode to move air in different directions depending on the ambient temperature. Usually there is a switch located on the base of the fan that reverses the spin of the blades. This helps to push the cool air up and helps to make the room feel fresh. Doing so can make the ambient temperature feel about 4 degrees cooler according to consumerreports.org. In the hotter months of the year set your blades to spin in a counterclockwise rotation when looking directly up at it. Set the blades to spin in a clockwise direction in the winter winter to force the hot air down.
