Hunter Ceiling Fan Led Light Bulbs - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't have a reverse button. The individuals who designed those fans, only too ignorant to think of 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 assemble in the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor level. Until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. However, by the time this occurs, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, what if there was a strategy to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heat unit would not have to work long and also the savings on our utility bill might be substantial. This mixing would basically equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, which means that the heat would not be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Afterward it will come down until it hits the floor. Now it's going to travel, at floor level, back in toward the center of the room and then back up to the ceiling fan.
