Change your ceiling fan blade direction when the seasons change: counterclockwise in the summer, and clockwise in the winter.

Running your fan counterclockwise in summer directs air downward and creates a breeze; in the winter, running it clockwise will force cold air upward and warm air down to you. You'll save up to 40% on A/C in the summer and 10% on heating in the winter by managing air flow with a ceiling fan (that's up to $10/month).
