Powerful Ceiling Extractor Fans - What's the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you cannot stand a draft during winter months, but that you can equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the reverse way. I wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, simply too dumb to think about used reverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the lower levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. But from the time this happens, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there clearly was a method to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heating unit would not need to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill may be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft made by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let's simply turn the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it'll go flat in most directions until it hits the walls. Until it hits on the floor, then it will come down. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel back in toward the centre of the space.
