Hunter Augusta Iii Ceiling Fan - Well "they," say that you CAn't stand a draft during winter months, but that it is possible to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the inverse direction. I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, simply too dumb to think about used inverse 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 build in the ceiling level and gradually work its way down toward floor level. The heat unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms. However, by the time this happens, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, what if there is a strategy to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heat unit wouldn't need to work as long and the savings on our utility bill could be significant. The temperature would basically equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Then it'll come down until it hits the floor. Now it's going to go, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
