We both use fan and air conditioner. We only use aircon 3 hours every night only and it will automatically switch to fan. Aircon is expensive and our electric bill double when we first use it. Fan is more economical and practical

You can use both fan and air conditioner but air conditioner is quite expensive. It depends upon your budget. If you're confused in choosing the best brand to buy I hope this site can help you get the best gadgets for your home.

I love AC but I don't like the health problems that Come with AC.That's why I will choose ordinary fan.

Although, AC is more convenient for humans,its health implication calls for worry.

People that work in air conditioned environment can experience chronic headache and fatique.They can also experience constant mucous membrane irritation and breathing difficulties.This leaves you vulnerable to contracting cold,flu and other illnesses.

Long hours spent under AC can cause your skin to start losing its moisture.If you don't constantly moisturize,you may begin to suffer from dry skin.

AC can also enhance the effect of an illness you already have.AC increase the symptoms of low blood pressure, arthritis and neuritis

People who spend long hours under AC are always intolerant of heat.This intolerable of hear has lead to increase in heat related deaths during heat waves.

This are some reasons out of the numerous reasons I prefer ordinary fan to AC before you spend on that AC,think of the consequences I stated above.

Both are good but when you look at it from an environmental perspective, fans are better than air conditioners. Fans are more efficient as they save more energy. We know how expensive it could be to run and air conditioning. An air conditioner costs way more than a fan.
Also, with air conditioning, you skin is likely to get drier since the process of refrigeration removes the moisture from the environment. Henceforth you'd need to be well moisturized. There has also been cases of headaches linked to long hours under the air conditioner.

I guess when we use the air conditioner at the time we really need it, we can help the environment by saving up more energy. I honestly prefer the air conditioner but I opt for fan when I know that I can do without it.

Yea,fan is a better option if we can't possibly use the AC. It good to protect our skin from dryness. Constant use might not be in our best interest. 
I was about to write the same answer but i found that you have answered the same and in a very perfect way , thanks a lot brother for your help.

To be honest with you, I completely prefer air conditioning to any type of fan at any given moment.

Air conditioners are better tools or appliances for conditioning the air around you. I mean, a fan is no where close to achieving what an airconditioner does. The entire operations of a fan revolves around taking the air in circulation then blowing them out as strong winds to whatever direction it faces. This means that a fan will blow hot during hot weathers, and cold, in a cold weather.

Airconditioners on the other hand, work in a complete different way than a fan. Thats why it's called airconditioner, to condition the air. With an airconditiiner, one can simply make the atmosphere around any given room suit their needs. Hence, i see no reason why I should pick or substitute an airconditiiner for a fan.

I've heard of certain minor health risk which has been associated with regular and constant use of Airconditioners. For me, i haven't experienced any, so I doubt these health risk were actually even caused by air conditioning. And even if they were, then its probably because the users failed to condition the air in a way that suits the environment and also is proportionate to what their bodies need.

Yea, different strokes for different folks. Whichever suits one bodies can be used without trying to join the bandwagon.

Both has come with advantages and disadvantages which we are going to compare for those of us that may wish to make use of one and leave the other. One of the core advantages of making use of the air conditioner is that it is going to keep your room and the entire interior as fresh as possible. You will agree with me that the feeling when we are in a house where there is air conditioner is always great and better than fan. On the other hand, being in a room where there is fan, you get to feel that simplicity and mixture of cool and heat atmosphere.

The disadvantage of having an air conditioner is that the maintenance is always costly unlike what we have with the electric fan. When there is an issue with the electric fan, you get to see that it is not always expensive to repair. This is different from what we have with AC. So, I think I prefer making use of fan than AC.

Both the appliances have different pros and cons. The pros of AC are more than cons. AC cools down the air and keeps the room at a certain temperature that is liked by human body. We can adjust the temperature of an air conditioner from 16 degree to 25 degree. It feels good when you are in an AC room. But talking about the disadvantages then the advantages overcome the disadvantages. The disadvantages are that it is not good for human bones because it makes the skin loose and unhealthier.

Fan does not cools down the temperature. It just circulates the air and return it back to you. SO I would suggest you to install an AC instead of FAN. The plus point is that you can turn on the ac as well as the fan and pull the blanket. By this you will feel much comfortable and cozy.

The comparison is quite tough as if we see according to comfort than definitely an air conditioner is best but if we see from health perspective than fan is good as it does not release any harmful gas.

Ceiling fan provide light to moderate cooling, through a different mechanism as compared to an air conditioner, but at a much lower cost. Air conditioners, in contrast provides much greater cooling power but at a disproportionately higher cost.

Health wise, Air conditioners is more better than a ceiling fan, because an Air conditioner solely conditions the air by maintaining all parameters including heating, cooling, humidification and dehumidification.

it depends upon the climate or seasons because during the summer season the air from the fan will be very hot and we cannot tolerate that heat and especially if we consider the south Indian side we cannot bear that heat. so at that condition, anyone should need air conidtioners. apart from that, there is no need to use air conditioners. the fans are best because using more air conditioners is not good for health.
