Repairing A Ceiling Fan Motor - Well "they," say that you cannot withstand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the inverse way. I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not get a reverse button. Were the people who designed those fans, just too ignorant to think about using inverse in winter?
The heat unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms. However, by the time this happens, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, what if there is a method to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the low levels where we reside. The heat unit would not need to work long and the savings on our utility bill may be considerable. This mix would basically equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let's just reverse the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it will go horizontal in all ways until it hits the walls. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it will come down. Now it's going to travel, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
