    Yeah.. I'm not going to replace it. I put oil in it every few years. It works beautifully and does a nice job keep us cooler in the summer too.

    I bought one of these to push colder floor air from my back rooms down a short hallway into the main living area and it does a nice job getting warmer heated air back into the two back rooms off that hallway.

    You can make that "reversible" by replacing the blade "irons" with adjustable ones.

    I got my last set on Ebay. I don't see any adjustable ones there currently.

    I have a setup similar to yours, a cathedral ceiling in the stove room that is open to a balcony on the second floor, I have ours blowing down. My dad was telling me about something he read that I should reverse it in the winter so the hot air is sucked up and comes back down the walls. Long story short, I reversed it for a day, then switched it right back. The heat was sucked up all right, but never came back down.

    You could try contacting the Hunter fan company, (have the model number handy), and see if they still make parts for that fan, from the pictures, yours appears to be either a 36" or 42", so parts may be scarce, if they even made reversible irons for that fan.

    Actually, I just took a second look at your picture, and you *may* already have revers-air irons. Could you post a better picture of the blade irons? I think I see the pivot point where they would turn, to reverse the airflow.

    ok, I couldn't tell without looking at them side by side.

    Thanks Dustin, a phone call is worth it. I'll give that a try.
