Outdoor Ceiling Fan With Light And Heater - What's the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. The individuals who designed those fans, just too ignorant to think of used inverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But by the time this happens, it will be quite hot at the ceiling level.
But imagine if there clearly was a solution to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we live. The heat unit would not need to work as long and the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. This mixing would basically equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft created by the ceiling fans would 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 is going to go horizontal in most ways until it hits the walls. Afterward it will come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the middle of the space, back in at floor level.
