Small Size Ceiling Fans - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't have a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, simply too stupid to think about used inverse in winter?
Until the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. But by the time this occurs, it'll be very hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there is a way to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the lower levels where we reside. The heating unit would not need to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill may be substantial. The temperature would basically equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft created by the ceiling fans will be too much for winter months. Then it'll come down until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the centre of the room, back in at floor level.
