Mission Style Ceiling Fan Light Shades - Well "they," say that you aren't able to bear a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the reverse way. I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't get a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, only too stupid to think about used reverse in winter?
Until the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But from the time this happens, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
But imagine if there is a strategy to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heat unit would not need to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill could 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 only reverse the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it'll go flat in all ways until it hits the walls. Then it's going to come down vertically until it hits on the floor. Now it's going to travel, toward the middle of the area, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
