Abstract

A combined ceiling mounted low velocity circulating fan and co-operating electric heating assembly includes a conventional ceiling fan and a heating assembly unobtrusively mounted below the ceiling fan and having a PTC heating element and second fan for circulating air over the heating element. The dual purpose fan provides heat in an efficient, effective and comfortable manner.
