Hello,

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

Barbara

The fan should blow down in the summer and pull the air up toward the ceiling in the winter.

I always have mine set to blow down.

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.

Barbara, we have 5 ceiling fans and every one turns counterclockwise to blow air down to the floor. This is if you are under the fan looking up.
