Celing Fan 101: For. or Rev.jrm
Jul 19, 2003 5:43 AM
I was thinking rev. I have it installed in the bedroom which is on a mezzanine 2nd floor. And i would like to draw the coooler air coming from downstairs via the hallway.

I was using one of those fit in the window fans on exhaust to draw the air into the room and shoot it out the bedroom window. Any suggestions?

Peace..time to ride..

Your window fan drew air into the room by removing the air that was already in the room and throwing it out the window, very effective.

A ceiling fan will not do this job. Basically in a room less than about 9' high, ceiling fans are decorative and they make a breeze which is confortable for the occupants in the room. They don't affect air movement like your window fan. Basically down draft for summer, up draft for winter, just like it says in the instructions.
