Very Unique Ceiling Fans - What's the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't get a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, simply too ignorant to think of used inverse in winter?
The heating unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms. However, by the time this occurs, it will be very hot in the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there was a way to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we live. The heating unit would not need to work long and the savings on our utility bill could be substantial. This mix would essentially equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, which means that the heat would not be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft created by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. Until it hits the floor, afterward it will come down. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go back in toward the middle of the space.
