Repairing A Ceiling Fan Light Pull Chain - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you cannot withstand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the reverse way. I wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, simply too stupid to think about using reverse in winter?
Until the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms, the heat unit runs. However, from the time this occurs, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there is a method to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heat unit wouldn't need to work as long and the savings on our utility bill may be significant. This mixing would basically equalize the temperature at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let's simply turn the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it'll go flat in most ways until it hits the walls. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it's going to come down. Now it's going to go back in toward the centre of the space and then back up to the ceiling fan.
