Hunter Ceiling Fan Light Kit Compatibility - I wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. Were the people who designed those fans, only too dumb to think of using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you utilize 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 slowly work its way down toward floor amount. Before the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms, the heating unit runs. However, from the time this occurs, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
However, what if there is a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heating unit would not need to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill could be substantial. This mixing would essentially equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us only reverse the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it is going to go flat in all ways until it hits the walls. Until it hits the floor, afterward it will come down. Now it'll travel, toward the center of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
