Ceiling Fans With Bright Lights And Remote - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you CAn't stand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by using your fan in the reverse direction. I wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't have a reverse button. The individuals who designed those fans, only too stupid to consider used reverse in winter?
The heating unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms. But from the time this occurs, it will be quite hot at 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 wouldn't need to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Afterward it'll come down until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel back in toward the centre of the area.
