Surya Vortex Ceiling Fan - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I always wondered why the older ceiling fans did not have a reverse button. The people who designed those fans, only too stupid to think of used inverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But from the time this happens, it will be very hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there was a method to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heat unit would not have to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill may be considerable. This mix would essentially equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, meaning that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft developed by the ceiling fans would be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us only reverse the ceiling fans and allow the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it will go horizontal in all directions until it hits the walls. Until it hits the floor, afterward it's going to come down. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will travel, at floor level, back in toward the centre of the area.
