Outdoor Ceiling Fans With Heaters - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you aren't able to withstand a draft during winter months, but that it is possible to equalize the air temperature through the use of your fan in the reverse way. I always wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, just too dumb to think of using reverse in winter?
Until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms, the heating unit runs. However, by the time this happens, it will be quite hot at the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there was a solution to get this hot air down to the low levels where we reside. The heating unit would not need to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill might be substantial. This mix would essentially equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Until it hits the floor, then it will come down vertically. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the centre of the room, back in at floor level.
