Ceiling Fan With Dimmable Led - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, just too ignorant to think about using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you utilize 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 in the ceiling level and gradually 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 happens, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But imagine if there was a way to get this hot air down to the low levels where we live. The heating unit wouldn't have to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. The temperature would basically equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be squandered 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's just turn the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it is going to go flat in most directions until it hits the walls. Afterward it's going to come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it's going to go, toward the center of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
