Reversing the Fan

Reverse Switch Updraft (clockwise rotation) creates a more indirect airflow. Updraft airflow is great for moving warm air downward.

Downdraft (counterclockwise rotation) creates a direct breeze and maximum cooling effect.

Ceiling fans work in two directions: downdraft (counterclockwise rotation) and updraft (clockwise rotation). To change the direction of air flow, turn the fan off and let it come to a complete stop. Slide the reversing switch to the opposite position. Restart the fan.
