Ceiling Fans That Provide Good Lighting - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you cannot stand a draft during winter months, but that it is possible to equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the inverse way. I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not get a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, simply too dumb to think about using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you employ the central heating system, the warm air coming from the registers, in each room, will naturally rise and because the registers are up high already, the hot air will build at the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor amount. Until the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms, the heating unit runs. However, by the time this occurs, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there was a solution to get this hot air down to the low levels where we live. The heating unit wouldn't need to work long and the savings on our utility bill may be considerable. This mix would basically equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let's simply turn the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it will go horizontal in most directions until it hits the walls. Afterward it will come down until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the centre of the room, back in at floor level.
