Dual Blade Ceiling Fans Home - Well "they," say that you cannot withstand a draft during winter months, but that it is possible to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the inverse way. I always wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, just too stupid to consider used inverse in winter?
During winter, when you make use of the central heating system, the warm air coming from the registers, in each room, will naturally rise and because the registers are up high already, the hot air will assemble in the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor level. The heating unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the low amounts of the rooms. However, by the time this happens, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there was a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heating unit would not have to work as long and the savings on our utility bill may be substantial. 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 that the draft made by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Then it'll come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, at floor level, back in toward the center of the room.
