Ceiling fans - Historic Market Square, San Antonio, TX, US

Ceiling fans promote air movement and draw hot air upward; both are beneficial means of improving thermal comfort in a hot-humid climate. In this example, the ceiling fans are placed in high porch ceilings above restaurant patrons. Outdoor dining, in the shade of the porch ceiling, also promotes the thermal comfort of the patrons.
