Hunter Ceiling Fan Fabric Shades - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you CAn't withstand a draft during winter months, but that you can equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the reverse direction. I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not get a reverse button. The individuals who designed those fans, just too dumb to think about used reverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the lower levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But by the time this occurs, it'll be very hot in the ceiling level.
But imagine if there clearly was a method to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the lower levels where we live. The heat unit would not have to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill could be significant. The temperature would essentially equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Until it hits the floor, afterward it will come down. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel, toward the middle of the area, back in at floor level.
