Slow Ceiling Fan Speed - Well "they," say that you cannot stand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature through the use of your fan in the inverse direction. I wondered why the older ceiling fans did not have a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, just too stupid to consider used inverse in winter?
During winter, when you use 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 gradually work its way down toward floor amount. Before the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. However, from the time this happens, it'll be quite hot at the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there clearly was a strategy to get this hot air down to the low levels where we live. The heat unit wouldn't have to work as long and the savings on our utility bill may be considerable. This mixing would essentially equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, which means that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Afterward it will come down until it hits the floor. Now it's going to go, at floor level, back in toward the centre of the space and then back up to the ceiling fan.
