Yes, ceiling fans certainly help an air conditioning unit keep your room temperature at a comfortable level.
How Ceiling Fans Help Air Conditioning
Ceiling fans work by continually moving the air around. They reduce the air stillness which is responsible for much of the discomfort caused by a hot room.
Lowering the temperature of your air conditioning will cost you more in energy and isn’t as effective as having a ceiling fan and ac unit working together.
As the fan moves the cool air around your room, it moves the air over your skin which evaporates any perspiration and reduces your body heat. This leaves both you and the room feeling cooler. In some cases, this requires you to raise the air conditioning temperature as the room is too cold, which again saves you energy.
With modern ceiling fans costing as little as 16 cents per day to run, using one as an accompaniment to an air conditioning unit is a smart idea.
