Thin Ceiling Fan With Light - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you aren't able to bear a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the inverse direction. I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, only too dumb to think of using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you utilize 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 before the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms. However, from the time this occurs, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there was a strategy to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heating unit would not have to work 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 produced by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Afterward it's going to come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level.
