Sports Ceiling Fan Light Kit - I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not get a reverse button. Were the people who designed those fans, just too stupid to consider using reverse in winter?
During winter, when you utilize the central heating system, the warm air coming out of the registers, in each room, will naturally rise and because the registers are up high already, the hot air will build at the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor level. The heat unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms. However, from the time this happens, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
However, what if there clearly was a method to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the lower levels where we reside. The heat unit would not need to work long and the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. This mix would basically equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft created by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Afterward it'll come down until it hits on the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel, at floor level, back in toward the middle of the space.
