Hunter Black And Silver Ceiling Fan - Well "they," say that you CAn't bear a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the inverse way. I always wondered why the older ceiling fans did not have a reverse button. Were the people who designed those fans, only too ignorant to think of using inverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms, the heating unit runs. But from the time this occurs, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But imagine if there clearly was a method to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the low levels where we reside. The heating unit would not need to work as long and the savings on our utility bill could be considerable. The temperature would basically equalize at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat would not be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft developed by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let's only turn the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it will go flat in all directions until it hits the walls. Until it hits the floor, afterward it'll come down. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel, toward the centre of the area, back in at floor level.
