Flush Mounted Ceiling Fans - I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, just too dumb to think of used reverse in winter?
During winter, when you employ 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 slowly work its way down toward floor amount. The heating unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms. However, by the time this happens, it will be very hot in the ceiling level.
However, what if there was a solution to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heating unit would not need to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. This mixing would basically equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft developed by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us just turn the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it'll go flat in all directions until it hits the walls. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it will come down. Now it is going to go, toward the center of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
