Extra Large Outdoor Ceiling Fans - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't have a reverse button. The individuals who designed those fans, simply too ignorant to think of used inverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms, the heating unit runs. But from the time this happens, it'll be very hot in the ceiling level.
But imagine if there is a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heating unit wouldn't need to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill could be considerable. This mixing would essentially equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft developed by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let's simply turn the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it is going to go horizontal in all directions until it hits the walls. Afterward it'll come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel back in toward the center of the room.
