On ceiling fans which direction should the blades spin for winter use?

For winter use, a ceiling fan should spin so that warm air near the ceiling is pushed back down toward the floor. Think of the fan blades as scoops - you want the fan to turn so that the higher edge of the blade is in front, so it catches the air and pushed it down. If the blades slope upward to the right, you'll want the fan to turn clockwise when viewed from below; if the blades slant upward to the left when viewed from the side, set the fan to turn counterclockwise. Most fans sold in the United States should be set to turn counterclockwise in winter.

What is the optimum distance between a ceiling fan blade and the ceiling for maximum air flow in the room?

I've a 4 ft diameter ceiling fan with 3 blades of std width (about 3") hanging at a distance of 9" from the ceiling. Floor to ceiling distance is 8'5". Problem is that when I stand at a distance of about 3 to 4 feet from the centre of the fan - there is no air-flow. So, area covered by fan is 8 ft dia (max). If I stand beyond 8 ft dia circle there is hardly any air flow. Same fan in another room is hanging at a distance of about 12" to 13" and it's covering area 12 ft dia on the floor with a reasonable air-flow. It seems that there is some co-relation between height of fan from ceiling and area covered below it. Any idea? The distance from the ceiling is of little importance unless ceiling is very tall. Size of fan, width of blades makes the difference. Pitch of the blades The angle, or pitch, of each ceiling fan blade is also a determining factor in how efficient a ceiling fan will be. The angle of the blade affects the amount of wind resistance and the fan's ability to blow the circulated air downward. You can find more info on this website:

Why three winged ceiling fan is faster than a four winged ceiling fan?

Surface area of the fan blades determine the work involved. A fan with a 36 inch diameter having four blades has more surface area so must work harder than a fan of the same diameter having only three blades. More work on the same amount of energy supplied will be slower. If the surface of the additional blade adds 25 percent more drag then the speed of the motor will reflect it.
