Types Of Ceiling Fan Motors - I always wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't have a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, simply too dumb to think about used reverse in winter?
During winter, when you apply 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 at the ceiling level and gradually work its way down toward floor amount. The heating unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms. However, by the time this occurs, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there is a solution to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we live. The heating unit wouldn't have to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill might be substantial. This mixing would basically equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us simply turn the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it will go horizontal in all directions until it hits the walls. Afterward it'll come down until it hits on the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel, toward the centre of the room, back in at floor level.
