Outdoor Themed Ceiling Fans - I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not get a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, only too dumb to think of using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you employ 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 gradually work its way down toward floor level. The heat unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms. However, from the time this happens, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, what if there was a method to get this hot air down to the lower levels where we dwell. The heat unit wouldn't have to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill may be significant. The temperature would basically equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft created by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. Then it'll come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it is going to travel, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
