Royal Pacific Ceiling Fan Remote - What is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? I wondered why the older ceiling fans didn't have a reverse button. The individuals who designed those fans, only too ignorant to consider used reverse in winter?
During winter, when you utilize the central heating system, the warm air coming from the registers, in each room, will naturally rise and because the registers are up high already, the hot air will assemble at the ceiling level and slowly work its way down toward floor amount. The heating unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the lower levels of the rooms. However, from the time this happens, it will be very hot at the ceiling level.
However, imagine if there is a way to get this hot air down to the lower levels where we reside. The heating unit would not need to work as long as well as the savings on our utility bill might be considerable. The temperature would essentially equalize at ceiling and floor levels, meaning the heat would not be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft made by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let's only turn the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it is going to go flat in most ways until it hits the walls. Then it will come down vertically until it hits on the floor. Now it's going to go, toward the middle of the room, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
