Make sure your ceiling fans rotate in the correct direction to cool you in summer.

We're having a heat wave; so make sure your ceiling fans are spinning in the right direction to move air around the room. Most fans are reversible: One direction pushes air down, creating a nice summer breeze; the other direction sucks air up, helping you distribute heat in winter. There's normally a switch on the motor to change the fan's direction. Is your fan turning in the right direction for summer? •Stand beneath the running fan, and if you feel a cooling breeze, it's turning correctly.

If not, change directions, usually by flicking a switch on the fan's base.

 Typically, it's counterclockwise or left for summer and clockwise for winter, but the best method is to follow the steps above. Funny note: We read on Yahoo! that one clever person used bubbles to see which direction his fan was blowing.
