Reverse direction for a ceiling fan is a clockwise motion producing an updraft. In the winter, when your heater is running, reversing your ceiling fan moves warm air near the ceiling down to the floor. This greatly reduces your energy use and can lower your energy bills by as much as 15 percent. You will need a ladder or a step stool to reach the motor housing. Turn off your ceiling fan and locate the direction switch on the motor housing. This one is here, sometimes they are on the top of the motor housing. Make sure your fan has come to a complete stop before flipping the direction switch in the opposite direction

You cannot do this because the remote has a connection for reversing the direction of the blades. Hunter does not post the schematic for their fans. There is a common, low, medium, high and possibly the light and the reverse direction. IF you do manage to connect it, you will lose a lot of functionality.
