Harbor Breeze Hive Ceiling Fan - What exactly is the reason for having a reverse button on ceiling fans? Well "they," say that you aren't able to withstand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the reverse way. I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't have a reverse button. Were the people that designed those fans, simply too dumb to think of using reverse 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 at the ceiling level and gradually work its way down toward floor level. The heat unit runs before the temperature is comfortable at the lower amounts of the rooms. However, by the time this occurs, 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, off the ceiling where we dwell. The heat unit would not need to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill may be substantial. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat would not be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But someone said the draft produced by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Afterward it'll come down until it hits 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.
