White Tropical Ceiling Fans With Lights - 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 individuals who designed those fans, only too dumb to consider used reverse in winter?
During winter, when you make use of the central heating system, the warm air coming out of 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 heat unit runs until the temperature is comfortable at the lower levels of the rooms. However, from the time this happens, it'll be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there was a strategy to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the lower levels where we live. The heat unit would not 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 would not be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us only turn the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it is going to go flat in most directions until it hits the walls. Until it hits the floor, afterward it's going to come down vertically. Now it is going to travel back in toward the centre of the room and then back up to the ceiling fan.
