Plane Propeller Ceiling Fan - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you cannot withstand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the inverse direction. I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, simply too stupid to think of used inverse in winter?
Until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. However, from the time this occurs, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, what if there was a solution to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the lower levels where we dwell. The heating unit wouldn't have to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. This mix would essentially equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, which means that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft developed by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Afterward it'll come down until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go back in toward the middle of the space.
