Pictures Of Ceiling Fans On Porches - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you CAn't stand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the reverse way. I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, only too ignorant to think about using reverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. However, from the time this happens, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, what if there was a method to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the low levels where we dwell. The heat unit would not have to work long and the savings on our utility bill might be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft made by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. Afterward it's going to come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it will go, toward the center of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
