High Speed Airflow Cfm Ceiling Fan - What's 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 it is possible to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the reverse direction. I wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, just too stupid to think about used reverse in winter?
The heat unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms. But from the time this happens, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
But what if there is a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heat unit would not need to work long and the savings on our utility bill could be considerable. The temperature would basically equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft created by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Then it will come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, at floor level, back in toward the center of the area.
