Exhaust Fans For High Ceilings - Well "they," say that you aren't able to stand a draft during winter months, but that you can equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the inverse direction. I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, just too stupid to think about used inverse in winter?
Until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But by the time this happens, it will be very hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there was a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heat unit would not have to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. This mix would basically equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft developed by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Then it will come down vertically until it hits on the floor. Now it'll go back in toward the middle of the area and then back up to the ceiling fan.
