Small Wall Hugger Ceiling Fans - I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older did not have a reverse button. Were the people who designed those fans, just too ignorant to consider using inverse in winter?
Until the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heating unit runs. But by the time this occurs, it will be quite hot at the ceiling level.
But imagine if there clearly was a way to get this hot air down to the low levels, off the ceiling where we live. The heating unit wouldn't have to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill may be significant. This mixing would essentially equalize the temperature at ceiling and floor levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be wasted keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft produced by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. So someone else said "well, let us just turn the ceiling fans and let the air blow up until it hits the ceiling and then it'll go flat in most directions until it hits the walls. Until it hits on the floor, afterward it will come down vertically. Now it then back up to the ceiling fan and will go, toward the middle of the area, back in at floor level.
