Kendal Ceiling Fan Downrod - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? 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 have a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, only too stupid to consider used reverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But from the time this occurs, it will be quite hot at the ceiling level.
But what if there is a solution to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heat unit wouldn't have to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill could be considerable. This mix would essentially equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft developed by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us only turn the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it'll go flat in most ways until it hits the walls. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it will come down vertically. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go back in toward the center of the room.
