I winter it blows up to catch the warm air from the ceiling and bring it down. In summer it blows down to cool you off by evaporation.

Should the blades of a reversible ceiling fan turn clockwise or counterclockwise in the Summer?


Seeing as to how hot air rises and cold air falls, you may get better results with air circulation if you have them blowing upwards (as it will help pull the cooler air up and flow elsewhere.)

I know I should reverse the direction of the ceiling fan for summer/winter. Which way is which?


you want the fan to turn anti clock ways in winter as this sucks the cold air upwards pushing the hot air from the roof downwards. and clock wise in summer blowing cool air downwards to cool you

take care
please remember to rate this repair.

Clockwise, counterclockwise which is the summer setting?


Ceiling Fan Direction These recommendations depend actually on the height and size of the room; the season; and the activity taking place in the room.

The basic fact of nature is that warm air rises to the top and cold air settles on the bottom. Air settles in layers from warm at the top to cold at the bottom, if left alone at equilibrium.

Ceiling fan recommendations:

In the winter
Set the fan to run counterclockwise (reverse; this looks clockwise as you are looking up). This will redirect the warm air from the ceiling and down the walls and into the living space where the people actually are. In a house, you would run the fan at a low speed so that you don't actually cool the warm air that you are moving downward. If you have a high ceiling, or are trying to heat a hall or a church, you may want to increase the fan speed so that the warm air will reach the living space as long as the fan speed does not create an unwanted downdraft at the people below. In the summer
In a room of normal height (8 - 10 ft), you should operate your fan so that it turns clockwise (this looks counterclockwise as you are looking up), causing a more directed downdraft, especially with the fan running slightly faster. This causes a wind-chill effect because the skin evaporates slight amounts of water from the sweat glands and thereby provides cooling through the skin's surface. However, the air is only moved but not cooled! You may find that you can turn your thermostat down a degree or two and save more money on energy costs. The air blowing down won't actually cool the room though, so you should turn the fan off when there are no people (or animals) in the room. In a high hall or church
It may be best NOT to run the fans at all in summer. This lowers the demand for cooling since the hot layer on top is an excellent insulation between the cool air near the floor (and the people) and the hot roof and outside.

A large, tall manufacturing hall would typically have different goals. There one would have a floor full of heat producing machinery plus the people operating it, working hard and welcoming a bit of a breeze. Then it would make sense to run the fans at fairly high speed to create a certain and directed downdraft. And with the shifts going throughout the days of the week, the fans should be running all the time and maybe in all seasons.

Finally, fans typically use 80-100 watts. When used properly, ceiling fans can really help to optimize the comfort level of the people and save energy and money.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer

Does the switch to change the direction of the fan need to be up or down to pull warm air down


In the winter you would want the fan turningclockwise and on most ceiling fans it is in the up position. and in the summer you want it in the down position running counter clockwise creating a wind chill effect.

Which way should the fan turn for winter use?


Although there are those who would say otherwise, it really doesn't matter much which way the fan turns regarding summer or winter. It does matter regarding whether you want air blown directly down upon you or sucked up past you toward the ceiling. Some would say that the fan should blow down in the winter, since hot air rises and the fan would blow it back down, but if you think about it, if the fan is blowing air toward the ceiling, the hot air up there has to go somewhere, like down when it reaches the walls. It is, once again, really a matter of what makes you comfortable in summer or winter.
Hope this helps.

On the body of the fan motor is a small sliding switch(up and down), if you cannot reach it you can use a broomstick to carefully change it's position.
