I'm not sure that the manufacturers are consistent on which way to mount the switch (many are mounted sideways).

For summer, you want the wind to blow down on you. Hold a strip of paper in your hand and see which way it goes.

For winter, you want the wind to blow upwards. This will push against the ceiling, forcing the warm air to circulate down to the floor level.

What is the December Solstice?

Winter solstice is an Astronomical phenomenon which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. Winter solstice occurs for the Northern Hemisphere in December and for the Southern Hemisphere in June

The axial tilt of Earth and gyroscopic events of the planet's daily rotation keep the axis of rotation pointed at the same point in the sky. As the Earth follows its orbit around the Sun, the same hemisphere that faced away from the Sun, experiencing winter, will, in half a year, face towards the Sun and experience summer. Since the two hemispheres face opposite directions along the planetary pole, as one polar hemisphere experiences winter, the other experiences summer.

Can't find a switch to change the direction of the fan. Not on the wall switch. Minka Aire F701-PW 52-Inch Pewter Delano Ceiling Fan

Generally, the fan directional switch is located on the lower portion of the fan's housing. It will be a 2 position slide switch. Up for Winter, Down for Summer. Do not try to change the direction wihile the fan is ON or rotating. In the Summer, the higher the speed the better. As it generates a wind chill, that fools your body into thinking it cooler that what it really is.

Hope this helped you.

I am unable to change the direction of the blades on my hampton bay fan. I am unable to locate the switch

Alexander, if you have a light kit on your fan, look just above where it's a attached to the bottom of the fan. There will be a 2 position slide switch on the side of the housing.. Up is for Winter operation, Down is for Summer operation. Turn the fan OFF and wait until the blades stop turning before switching the direction of the rotation.

Hope this helps you.

Fan has a switch for winter and summer. Is it up or down for summer?

This is probably a reversing switch changing the rotation direction. Check the air flow from the fan to find if it is pulling air up or pushing it down. Pushing down from the ceiling will be the 'winter' setting, pulling up, the summer. Since warm air gathers at the ceiling, it is beneficial to have it move that air downward during cold weather and have it pull up cooler air from the floor in summer. I frankly don't notice much difference though.

Jandy aqualink rs4: pool has been winterized with the spa left on. when switched from service mode into auto mode system switches back from spa into pool mode (motorized valve switches back to pool mode)....

the only thing you can do since the jandy does not have a "winter" mode is switch the valves off. Once you have the valves in spa mode, there should be a toggle switch on the valve actuators. You can set the switches to the middle position and that will lock them in that position. You will probably have to re-winterize the pool lines.

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.

Reversing rotation

The tech told me whre the switch was and at some point this winter I will get a very tall ladder and switch the fan over to clockwise - not a very good design on Hampton Bay's part.
