Dual Outdoor Ceiling Fans With Lights - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you CAn't withstand a draft during winter months, but that it is possible to equalize the air temperature through the use of your fan in the reverse direction. I wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, only too ignorant to think of using reverse in winter?
The heating unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms. However, from the time this happens, it will be quite hot at the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there was a strategy to get this hot air down to the lower levels where we live. The heating unit wouldn't need to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. This mix would basically equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft developed by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. Afterward it will come down until it hits the floor. Now it'll travel, toward the center of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
