Oversized Ceiling Fans With Lights - Well "they," say that you cannot stand a draft during winter months, but that you can equalize the air temperature through the use of your fan in the reverse way. 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 reverse in winter?
The heating unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms. But from the time this happens, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
But imagine if there clearly was a strategy to get this hot air down to the low levels where we live. The heating unit wouldn't need to work long and also the savings on our utility bill might be significant. The temperature would basically equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft developed by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. Until it hits on the floor, then it's going to come down. Now it's going to travel, toward the center of the space, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
