Ceiling Fans For Vaulted Ceilings - 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 through the use of your fan in the reverse way. I always wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't get a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, just too dumb to think of used reverse in winter?
During winter, when you use the central heating system, the warm air coming out of the registers, in each room, will naturally rise and because the registers are up high already, the hot air will build at the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor amount. The heating unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms. But from the time this occurs, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
But what if there is a strategy to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heating unit would not need to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill could be substantial. This mix would basically equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, meaning that the heat would not be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. Until it hits the floor, then it will come down vertically. Now it is going to go, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
