Playroom Ceiling Fans - I wondered why the older ceiling fans did not have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, simply too stupid to consider using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you apply 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 slowly work its way down toward floor amount. Before the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. However, by the time this happens, it'll be quite hot at the ceiling level.
However, what if there is a strategy to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we live. The heat unit wouldn't have to work long and also the savings on our utility bill might be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft made by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Until it hits the floor, afterward it's going to come down vertically. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the centre of the area, back in at floor level.
