Ceiling Fan Wall Switch Timer - Well "they," say that you cannot withstand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature through the use of your fan in the inverse way. I wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't have a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, just too dumb to consider using inverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms, the heating unit runs. But from the time this happens, it'll be quite hot at the ceiling level.
But imagine if there is a way to get this hot air down to the lower levels where we reside. The heating unit wouldn't need to work long and the savings on our utility bill may be considerable. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us just turn the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it'll go flat in all ways until it hits the walls. Then it will come down vertically until it hits on the floor. Now it'll travel, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
