Tractor Supply Ceiling Fan - Well "they," say that you cannot stand 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 didn't have a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, simply too dumb to think about using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you utilize 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 at the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor level. Before the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. But by the time this occurs, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
But imagine if there was a method to get this hot air down to the low levels where we dwell. The heating unit wouldn't need to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill could be significant. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, which means that the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft developed by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let's simply turn the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it will go flat in all ways until it hits the walls. Then it's going to come down until it hits the floor. Now it will go back in toward the centre of the space and then back up to the ceiling fan.
