Do Ceiling Fans Help Air Conditioning?

Having a ceiling fan doesn’t cool the actual temperature of a room down when run in conjunction with an air conditioner. Instead, it will create a breeze over your skin. This wind chill will let you set your thermostat higher and make it so that your air conditioning system doesn’t have to work as hard. It’s generally accepted that a ceiling fan could let you keep your home four degrees warmer while still having the same level of comfort.

Disadvantages of Running a Fan

Having a ceiling fan could slightly increase the temperature of a room. This happens because it moves warm air that has risen to the top of a room back down to mix with the cooler air by the floor. Air from around the walls, which tends to be warmer, is also mixed in with the cooler air in the center of the room. Because of this, it’s important to only run a fan when you are actually in a room. Overall, having a fan running in an occupied room will save you energy.

Install the Right Fan

Having the right-sized fan installed in your home is important for the right amount of cooling effect. Generally, larger fans will work more effectively than smaller ones.
