Drum Lamp Shade Ceiling Fan Light Kit - I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, simply too dumb to think about using reverse in winter?
During winter, when you make use of 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 gradually work its way down toward floor level. Until the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But by the time this happens, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there is a strategy to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heat unit would not need to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill may be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then 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 then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel, at floor level, back in toward the middle of the space.
