Ceiling Fan Regulator Types - Well "they," say that you cannot stand a draft during winter months, but that it is possible to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the inverse way. I wondered why the older ceiling fans did not have a reverse button. Were the people who designed those fans, simply too ignorant to consider using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you use 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 build at the ceiling level and gradually work its way down toward floor level. The heat unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms. But by the time this occurs, it will be quite hot at the ceiling level.
But imagine if there was a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heat unit wouldn't need to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill may be significant. The temperature would basically equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us simply reverse the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it will go flat in most ways until it hits the walls. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it'll come down vertically. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the center of the area, back in at floor level.
