Minka Aire Mesa White Hugger Ceiling Fan - Well "they," say that you aren't able to bear a draft during winter months, but that you can equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the reverse way. I always wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't get a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, just too ignorant to consider used reverse in winter?
During winter, when you make use of 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 in the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor amount. Until the temperature is comfortable at the lower levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But from the time this happens, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But imagine if there clearly was a solution to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heat unit wouldn't need to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill might be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans could 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 ways until it hits the walls. Then it's going to come down until it hits on the floor. Now it's going to travel, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
