I only have window air conditioners so I have a fan to blow the air into half the house, another in the bedroom to get air in there and 3 ceiling fans going.  I HATE HEAT!!!!!!!

I have two and they are strong enough to cool us down.

I have an air conditioning unit, so I rarely use fans. However, there are some days where the AC conks out. In that case, I usually have two fans running (ceiling and standalone).

We have been using a fan regularly for the last couple of weeks, but it has nothing to do with the temperature.  We had a freak rainstorm in our neighborhood that ended up with flooding along a small creek.  We NEVER have flooding in this area, so it must have been an extreme amount of rain.  About that time we noticed that the carpet was wet in our back bedroom.  Again, that's never happened before, but we could only figure it had something to do with the amount of rain we'd had since our house was built on a concrete slab.  We've been running the fan to dry out the carpet.  So far so good!

Keep a watch for black mold on your carpets after they have been wet for sometime.. if you start having allergy symptoms & or it starts to smell musty.  Hopefully it drys successfully without mold.

I agree with the fact you could get a mold problem easily.  If you have padding underneath the carpet, it is very difficult to dry out satisfactorily. I once had some rather plush carpeting in a room in my basement, no pad.  However, the sump pump went out and I spent days with 5-6 fans blowing every which way.  Bottom line was that I just never felt it was completely dry and was afraid of a mold issue.  When the carpet came out, sure enough, the backing was not completely dry to the touch.  Almost, but not quite!  Add on a pad, and it would probably never have dried!

I don't have AC at all in my home so I rely on a trusty big fan that is blowing on me all day and all night long so long as I am in the house. I really don't mind the heat very much to begin with. I'm one of those people who can't stand the cold, though.

I have 2 fans and the AC on. I have COPD and when it is in the 90's I have a hard time breathing.

It is too hot here to just depend on fans.  All they would do is blow hot air.  I have to use my air conditioner.  Last week mine stopped working, but I had someone there within an hour to fix it.

We have 2 ceiling fans on and my son uses a floor fan for better circulation and better comfort.

My husband and 1 of my daughters are allergic to everything, so unfortunately I cannot open my windows.  So AC for us all the way, but I do not keep my house cold, we manage the AC to be around 70 to 75 depending onthe weather outside, during the day and then lower during night so we sleep comfortable.

We have two fans in our home that we have been using almost non stop in the past week since the weather got to the 80's (feels more like 90 or higher ) daily after it being comfortable. Our air conditioning isn't working which forces us to do so and our management is very slow or rarely fixes anything here. I bought an extra fan on ebay on Tuesday, a honeywell 908 15 inch to backup my honeywell 900 that I use in my room since it was formerly my aunt's fan and I don't know how much more life it has in it. I don't want to have to wait in these temps for a new one to be delivered should that one burn out.

We put the AC in the window in the back of the house on the first of the month, were we sleep.  The one in the front of the house we  may put in today. It is suppose to thunder storm for the next 5 days so we may wait so we can have the windows open.
