Which direction should a ceiling fan go in the summer?

clockwise or counter clockwise?

Report as

The direction of fun rotation during summer should be counter clockwise or forward. This forces the cooler air through the blades and then back to the floor level accelerating the loss of perspiration on your skin.

I don't like Pushing the hot air at the top of the room down on me, so make it go up.

the highest direction, it will give a cycle to the air. Which will, of course, cool up the room faster!

counter clockwise, should blow air toward the ceiling to move the hot air and circulate it with the lower cool air.
