Growing up my Dad owned and operated an air conditioning and heating company.
Words like capacitor and fan motor and freon were a part of the everyday lingo in my childhood home.
So the other day, when I couldn’t find that just-right setting on the thermostat, I knew what to do. I grabbed the ladder from the garage, and climbed up to reach the ceiling fan.
One flip of the switch and warm air was circulating through the living room.
When you do this, make sure the ceiling fan blades are rotating clockwise. This motion pushes the warm air up and out across the room, keeping you warm and cozy on these cold, wintry nights.
Just by changing the ceiling fan direction and turning your thermostat down a couple of degrees, you can save money on your heating bill. And make sure to keep the ceiling fan on low.
This would be a good time to dust your ceiling fan, too.
See you in class,
