This reminds me of the toilet paper roll controversy, except the to actually had a patent that clearly showed the "right" way...

If it's summer and I'm sweating I want a downflow.  

If I'm already cold I don't want downflow making it worse so that's when I reverse the fan.

Having rental houses, I found when the tenant has the fans blowing up, the ceiling gets dirty, 

I epoxy the switch in the down mode

Seriously, the fan in the living room is Pull air Up in the summer and Push air Down in winter. In our bedrooms, push down year round. We sleep better that way, even with the windows open in the fall/winter when temps are not below freezing. I used to sleep on a screened in second floor porch in a old style feather bed in the winter in Joplin, Missouri. The sink in so far you almost do  not need a blanket kind. Big Grin

Down in the summer.
After working out in the heat all day I often radiate heat.

Don't ask me why, just do it.

Ceiling fan direction is what ever you want, not what someone else tells you.
Run it the way you want....
