Fact or Fiction: Ceiling Fans Can Cool Down My Room

Before the cooling season in Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati, Ohio officially hits, we’d like to bust a myth out there about ceiling fans in your home.

Ceiling fans do NOT condition the air, they just move air.  That movement may make the air 'feel cooler', but a ceiling fan has no way of controlling the temperature within the room.

Why should you need to additionally condition a room? 

Many homeowners find it essential to properly heat and cool rooms in their home for health reasons, comfort reasons, or even to get a proper night’s sleep. A ceiling fan may even be used to help overcome a poorly operating cooling system or a home with no central cooling at all.

What can be used to add proper cooling to a room instead of a ceiling fan?

In many homes throughout Ohio, the traditional, ducted heating and cooling system does not have the capacity or the technology to adequately keep all rooms a consistent temperature.  Homeowners that choose Logan A/C and Heat Services have trusted its team of experts which recommend Mitsubishi Electric ductless heating and cooling applications for rooms and spaces that experience hot and cold spots or a lack of heating and air conditioning.

How does a ductless HVAC system work?

Mitsubishi Electric mini-split systems are designed to both heat and cool spaces up to 400 sq ft.  The system requires an indoor powerhead attached to an outdoor condenser with a copper line set.

These systems are controlled by the homeowner using a remote to select various temperatures, air speeds, and air-flow direction.  The control can be programmed to run at various times of the day, and the system can even be controlled by using a remote app called KumoCloud.

Where are mini-split systems best utilized?

The short answer may be any room you’ve felt a ceiling fan is necessary, however through the 10+ years of installing these systems our team at Logan A/C and Heat Services have found the most popular applications tend to be located in the following areas:

What seasons are ductless HVAC systems generally used in?
