Large Ceiling Fans For Great Rooms - I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, simply too dumb to consider using reverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. However, from the time this happens, it'll be very hot in the ceiling level.
However, what if there was a way to get this hot air down to the low levels where we reside. The heating unit would not have to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill could be significant. The temperature would basically equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat would not be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans would 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 is going to go flat in all directions until it hits the walls. Until it hits the floor, then it's going to come down vertically. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go back in toward the center of the space.
