Hunter Flush Mount Ceiling Fans White - Well "they," say that you cannot bear a draft during winter months, but that you can equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the reverse direction. I always wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. The individuals who designed those fans, simply too stupid to consider used reverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the reduced levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But by the time this happens, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there was a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heat unit would not need to work as long and the savings on our utility bill might be significant. The temperature would basically equalize at ceiling and floor levels, which means that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it's going to come down. Now it will go, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
