    Question Use of Fan?

    Hi, I am new here.

    I am not able to make out what should we say when we want someone to increase the speed of a fan/cooler/AC.

    Should we say - "Please, speed up the fan." or something else?

    Also, what should we say if we want someone to decrease the speed of the fan?

    And are the expressions "Please switch on/of the fan" right?

    "Turn up the fan" - increase the speed

    "Turn down the fan" - decrease the speed

    "Switch on/off" is OK, but I prefer "turn on/off"
