High Power Ceiling Fan - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I wondered why the older ceiling fans did not have a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, only too ignorant to think about using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you employ 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 gradually work its way down toward floor amount. Before the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But by the time this occurs, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there is a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels where we live. The heat unit wouldn't have to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill could be significant. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft developed by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Afterward it'll come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the centre of the space, back in at floor level.
