Hunter Ceiling Fan Mounting Bracket Adapter - 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 you can equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the inverse way. I always wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't get a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, simply too ignorant to think of using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you employ the central heating system, the warm air coming out of the registers, in each room, will naturally rise and because the registers are up high already, the hot air will assemble in the ceiling level and gradually work its way down toward floor amount. The heat unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms. But from the time this happens, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But imagine if there clearly was a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heat unit would not have to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill may be considerable. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat would not be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft developed by the ceiling fans will 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 back in toward the middle of the room.
