Aviator Ceiling Fan Minka - I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, just too ignorant to think about used inverse in winter?
During winter, when you utilize 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 build in the ceiling level and gradually work its way down toward floor level. Until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But from the time this happens, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But imagine if there was a method to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the low levels where we dwell. The heat unit wouldn't have to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. This mixing would basically equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft created by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Until it hits the floor, then it'll come down vertically. Now it is going to go back in toward the middle of the space and then back up to the ceiling fan.
