.. you should use a lower speed settings. .
.. if the room is extremely large... with very high ceilings ( over 10 feet)...
then you may want to push the air downward
room size and shape will matter.. but in a standard height room.. displacing heat trapped at the ceiling and pushing it down the walls should be your best bet..
... but the truth of the matter is... try it both ways- and see which 1 gives you the most comfort.
I do however suggest you keep the fan speed low.
.. good luck and stay warm!
