Clod is right, at least for cooling. Airflow = increased evaporation = feel cooler.

Check which way the fans blades are angled, and make them turn so as to push air downwards onto you; i.e. the higher edge of each blade should be the leading edge as it spins, and the lower edge should be the trialing edge.

Dunno about clockwise vs counter, but you want the air to blow down in the summer (the breeze dries the moisture on your skin and helps cool you). In winter you want the air to go up so that it doesn't cool you (but gets the warm on the ceiling down where you are).

OR... just stand under it and see which way it's blowing on you.

By the way, I should have asked before; Northern or Southern hemisphere? *ducks*

You're moving the same amount of air. You're moving the same air. After a few minutes all the air is mixed.

Unless the windows are open.

Ooh, and don't forget Fan Death!!

Despite widespread reporting from the media and other agencies in South Korea about fan death, it has never been explained by these organizations why this phenomenon has never been reported or even heard of in any country other than South Korea.

Where's tw? I bet HE could resolve the question for us. Although I bet his answer would involve MBA's and/or top management.

It has nothing to do with me, or what my criteria is, or why you would care to convince me. That is way off-point.

The only thing that matters is doing the work to verify facts, to check hypothes. Demonstrate the foundation for a statement, i.e. what are the fundamental components--how do we know they fit together in the fashion suggested?

If these things can't be done, then what has been posited is classified as "file 13" --garbage. Not by me, but by the tireless global community of thinking individuals which constitute the vanguard of human culture and knowledge.



It has nothing to do with me, or whether you think I'm arguing with you. There is a correct procedure, well-defined and having stood the test of time. If you aren't following it, and I'm the one who has to bust your balls, and you want to spin that as me "arguing" with you, then you're really missing the point. Do your homework, because you aren't getting any free passes.

To flip this to the counterpoint--why should I care enough about you to take your glib statements at face value?

A Google Image search for 'ceiling fan porn' (no quotes), returns at least two images of a man hanging from a ceiling, taking it in the chili ring.

I went blind after just the two images.

For extra cooling, get a water spray bottle and mist yourself in front of the fan.
