Dual Head Rotational Ceiling Fan - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you CAn't stand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature through the use of your fan in the inverse way. I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, just too stupid to consider used inverse in winter?
The heating unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms. But by the time this happens, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But imagine if there was a solution to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heating unit wouldn't have to work as long and the savings on our utility bill could be considerable. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us just reverse the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it'll go horizontal in all directions until it hits the walls. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it will come down vertically. Now it's going to go back in toward the centre of the space and then back up to the ceiling fan.
