Basement Bathroom Ceiling Fan - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, only too stupid to consider using inverse in winter?
Until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. However, by the time this occurs, it'll be quite 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 dwell. The heating unit would not have to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill could be significant. The temperature would basically equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Then it will come down until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the center of the area, back in at floor level.
