I just had a new ceiling fan installed in my dining room to replace the one I had for over 20 years. I had always believed that the fan should go clock-wise in the summer. The electrician set it counter-clock-wise and insisted that was correct. This doesn't seem right to me. Although a lot of air blows down on me, I think it's the hot air that is blowing. I know it has something to do with the angle of the blades. Please advise.
Thank you both. Would that mean that it should go clockwise or counter-clockwise? I reversed the direction to clockwise and am feeling cooler air blowing on me, though not as much. The blades are angled down on the right.
