According to Energy Star, a ceiling fan is a part and parcel of every home that can be used to save the cost of energy throughout the year. A clockwise rotation of the fan pulls the air upward and pushes the warm air downward, as a result, it causes lower energy costs. In addition, it also reduces the costs of heating. A counterclockwise rotation circulates the cooler air below and pushes the air downward and also reduces the cooling cost of your home. The reverse function on a hunter fan will help you to change the direction of the rotation on your unit.
How to Reverse a Hunter Fan
To change the direction of the air, you need to press the “Reverse” button on the remote control of the ceiling fan. Press the “Reverse” button again will reinstate it to the previous direction of airflow. You can move on to the next step if your fan does not have a remote control.
The first thing you need to do is to turn off the fan. Find the reversing switch. It is available on the base of the fan near the switches of the fan speed and light.
You need to slide the switch to the opposite direction and that is it. Now, turn on the fan to check if the reverse is successful. Change the rotation of the fan to counterclockwise in the summer and clockwise in the winter.
We hope that you have learned successfully how to reverse a hunter fan and the differences between clockwise and counterclockwise rotations and when to change them.

I am trying to reverse the fan. I pushed the * button on the remote and it did not reverse the fan. No light blinked on the lightbulb button.
