I mean right now it's sucking coolER air from the room and blowing it over the rad. wouldn't blowing warm air over the rad actually RAISE its temp?

help me understand this plz
when you pull, you don't get a dead spot like when the fan is pushing(dead spot is where the fan motor is mounted) I always make my rad suck outside air, why make it pull in pre-heated air? makes no sense to me.
