A Different Spin on Energy Efficiency

Ceiling Fan Guide: When it comes to ceiling fans, you're definitely not in the no-spin zone. Unlike in politics, spin is good when you deal with modern ceiling fans. While installing Emerson ceiling fans in every room won't replace air conditioning, it will lower your heating bills by 10 percent, and your summer cooling bills by 40 percent.

This is especially true if you set the blades to spin clockwise in the winter and counter-clockwise in the summer. Combine your efficient spin action with Energy Star or "green" bulbs, and you'll help the environment. Now there's a step that needs no positive spin!
