Just so, where should a fan be to cool a room?
A great two-fan method is to place oneneara window facing out with another in a doorway, effectivelycreatinga wind tunnel. You can also set a tower fan in adiagonalcorner from another, facing the center of the room,and getthem to oscillate in rotation.
Beside above, is it better to have a fan blowing in or out? Real Simple notes that a fan blowingairout of your room is better than oneblowingin. When your fan is facing out thewindow, it blowshot air out of the room, which his replacedby cold air fromoutside. It's best if you have anotherwindow to openelsewhere so you can get a cross draftgoingtoo.
Considering this, how much does a fan cool room?
