Damp Rated Flush Mount Ceiling Fans - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? 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 inverse direction. I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, only too dumb to consider using inverse in winter?
The heating unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms. However, by the time this happens, it'll be quite hot at the ceiling level.
However, what if there was a way to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heating unit wouldn't need to work long and the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. The temperature would basically equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Afterward it's going to come down vertically until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the middle of the area, back in at floor level.
