When you reverse the fan, it draws air upward. Most people consider this to be a method of bringing the warmer air near the roof back down into the lower half of the room, where the people are. In the cold, that's a terrific way to employ the reverse function. It is, however, not the only way to use it. If your air conditioning vents are on the floor, reverse the fan to bring the cool air upward and distribute it throughout the room so you can truly feel it. It can help you maximise the efficiency of your air conditioner, allowing you to maintain it in a lower setting.

 

The reverse option can also blow warm air out of high windows, resulting in negative air pressure that draws cooler air in from lower windows. It is sometimes feasible to blast warm air out of the hot side of the house while drawing cooler air in from the side that does not receive direct sunshine.

So, the next time you turn on a ceiling fan, consider what it's supposed to do. Are you blowing air on your skin to cool it down? Are you attempting to attract cool air upward so that warm air may circulate back into the place you're in? Is the fan drawing in fresh air from outside or pushing it out an open window? Next time, think about it - and remember to use your fans instead of cranking up the heat or AC. Contact The Fan Studio to buy designer ceiling fans!
