Planes Ceiling Fan - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't have a reverse button. Were the people who designed those fans, only too ignorant to consider using reverse in winter?
Until the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. But from the time this occurs, it'll be very hot at the ceiling level.
But imagine if there is a method to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heating unit wouldn't have to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill could be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at ceiling and floor levels, which means that the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Until it hits on the floor, then it's going to come down vertically. Now it's going to go back in toward the center of the space and then back up to the ceiling fan.
