Ultra Slim Ceiling Fan - Well "they," say that you CAn't bear a draft during winter months, but that you can equalize the air temperature through the use of your fan in the inverse direction. I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, only too dumb to think of using inverse in winter?
The heat unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms. But from the time this occurs, it will 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 where we dwell. The heat unit would not have to work long and also the savings on our utility bill might be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat would not be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let's only 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. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it's going to come down. Now it'll travel, at floor level, back in toward the centre of the room and then back up to the ceiling fan.
