Fans work up to a point after which only AC will work. I'm fine with them in Bangalore but in areas closer to sea level with high humidity i don't think ceiling fans are the answer. Electricity costs are the main reason we hold on to fans. AC power consumption is quite high and even more if you need to run off a generatr or inverter. Fans will work just fine in that case.
Quick googling says ceiling fans don't do shit when the ambient air temperature is above your internal body temperature, and will only make you feel warmer.

That's not often in the states, depending on where you are.

Other problem is sucking up extra humidity into your home...
