A house fan question

Also, since the fan is only circulating the air, not cooling it, it's a good idea to turn it off when you're not in the room, so you can save energy.

this process works in reverse in the winter...if you reverse the fan in the winter...it pulls the cold air off the floor and pushes the hot air down to replace it

A ceiling fan fan serves two primary purposes: to provide a cooling breeze, and to circulate the air throughout a room or area. The first purpose is used primarily in hot weather but circulation can assist with heating as well as cooling. However you likely do NOT want to feel a cooling breeze in the winter. So the idea was introduced to run the fan in updraft instead of downdraft, blowing up towards the ceiling. This way air is circulated throughout the room without a breeze.
99% of ceiling fans currently in use run clockwise in "reverse" (updraft or winter mode) and counter-clockwise for regular operation. If you are not sure about your fan, run it on high and stand directly under the blades. If you do not feel a breeze, reverse the fan. When you feel the strongest breeze, that is downdraft or "forward" for summer operation.
