Ceiling Fan Direction/ Ceiling Register

I have a question about the direction of a ceiling fan if my register is on the ceiling. In the winter months, is the direction still clockwise since it won't be pulling the air up, but rather than blowing it directly down? Thanks for any advice you can give.

Re: Ceiling Fan Direction/ Ceiling Register

The point of changing fan directions depending on the time of year is for the reduction of draft (chilly breeze syndrome ). In the summer, you want the breeze of the fan blowing on you, in the winter, not so much, your ceiling register isn't going to change that.
