Remote Control For Hunter Ceiling Fans - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, simply too ignorant to think about used reverse in winter?
During winter, when you apply 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 assemble in the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor amount. Before the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms, the heating unit runs. But from the time this happens, it'll be very hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there clearly was a method to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the lower levels where we reside. The heating unit would not need to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill may be considerable. This mix would basically equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us simply reverse the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it is going to go horizontal in all directions until it hits the walls. Until it hits the floor, afterward it will come down. Now it's going to travel, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
