Xpelair Whisper Ceiling Fan - Well "they," say that you aren't able to stand a draft during winter months, but that it is possible to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the inverse way. I wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't get a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, only too stupid to think about used inverse in winter?
During winter, when you make use of the central heating system, the warm air coming from the registers, in each room, will naturally rise and because the registers are up high already, the hot air will assemble in the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor level. Before the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. However, from the time this occurs, it will be very hot in the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there clearly was a way to get this hot air down to the low levels where we dwell. The heating unit wouldn't have to work long and also the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. The temperature would essentially equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us only reverse the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it'll go horizontal in all ways until it hits the walls. Until it hits the floor, afterward it'll come down. Now it'll go, toward the centre of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
