Punkah Wallah Ceiling Fan - I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, simply too dumb to consider using reverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the lower levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. However, by the time this happens, it'll be very hot at the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there clearly was a way to get this hot air down to the lower levels where we dwell. The heating unit wouldn't need to work as long and the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. The temperature would basically equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft created by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Afterward it will come down vertically until it hits on the floor. Now it will travel, at floor level, back in toward the centre of the space and then back up to the ceiling fan.
