I prefer to have my ceiling fan pulling air up since that's the way the hot air wants to go anyway. I keep it on "Low" just to encourage the air to go where I want it.

3 pages for fan direction??? :confused: :funny:

I just leave it normal direction. My hydronic baseboards all run along the wall ... so the heat naturally will flow up the walls, then fall in the center as it cools. I only help it along with the fan when warming a cold room. I hardly use the fans, even in summer. They do nothing for me. I'd rather have the A/C on.

That's really not true.
You can only pull water up around 34'. That is it.
At 34 feet the pressure at the bottom of the pipe/column/vessel/whatever,
is equal to 1 atmosphere. You just cannot go past that with a conventional pump.
No matter how big it is.
That is why the pumps are at the bottom of a deep well, pushing,
and why they can work in a shallow well... pulling.

SO I wonder if a front wheel drive is better on gas mileage over a rear wheel drive :lol:
Kidding of course. :P

Doesn't matter IMO unless you want to feel a breeze in which case, push in down.
