Wireless Ceiling Fan And Light Remote Control Unit - Well "they," say that you cannot stand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature through the use of your fan in the inverse direction. I always wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, just too dumb to think of using inverse in winter?
During winter, when you use 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 build in the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor level. The heating unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the reduced amounts of the rooms. But by the time this occurs, it will be quite hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there clearly was a way to get this hot air down off the ceiling, to the lower levels where we dwell. The heating unit would not have to work long and also the savings on our utility bill may be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. Afterward it's going to come down until it hits on the floor. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the center of the space, back in at floor level.
