Z Wave Ceiling Fan Remote - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I always wondered why the older ceiling fans did not have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, just too dumb to think about using inverse in winter?
The heat unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms. But from the time this happens, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
But what if there clearly was a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heat unit would not need to work long and also the savings on our utility bill may be significant. The temperature would basically equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft created by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us just reverse the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it will go horizontal in most directions until it hits the walls. Afterward it will come down until it hits on the floor. Now it's going to go, toward the center of the area, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
