Pulley Ceiling Fan System - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you aren't able to bear a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature through the use of your fan in the reverse direction. I always wondered why the older ceiling fans did not get a reverse button. Were the individuals who designed those fans, only too stupid to think of using reverse in winter?
The heat unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the reduced levels of the rooms. But by the time this occurs, it will be very hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there was a solution to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we live. The heat unit wouldn't have to work long as well as the savings on our utility bill could be considerable. The temperature would basically equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it will come down vertically. Now it'll go, at floor level, back in toward the centre of the area and then back up to the ceiling fan.
