Casablanca Polished Brass Ceiling Fan - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, simply too dumb to think about using reverse in winter?
The heating unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms. But by the time this happens, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there is a method to get this hot air down to the low levels where we live. The heating unit wouldn't have to work long and the savings on our utility bill could be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans could 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'll go flat in all directions until it hits the walls. Then it'll come down until it hits on the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel, at floor level, back in toward the centre of the space.
