Hunter Hugger Ceiling Fans With Lights - Well "they," say that you CAn't withstand a draft during winter months, but that it is possible to equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the inverse way. I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not get a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, just too stupid to think of used inverse in winter?
The heat unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms. However, from the time this happens, it'll be very hot in the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there is a way to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heat unit wouldn't have 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, meaning that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us just reverse the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it is going to go horizontal in all directions until it hits the walls. Then it will come down until it hits on the floor. Now it will go, toward the center of the space, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
