Caged Ceiling Fan Outdoor - I always wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. The people that designed those fans, just too dumb to think about used inverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms, the heating unit runs. However, by the time this happens, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
However, what if there was a strategy to get this hot air down to the lower levels where we live. The heating unit would not need to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill might be significant. The temperature would basically equalize at ceiling and floor levels, which means that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Then it'll come down until it hits the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel, toward the center of the area, back in at floor level.
