Save Money By Using Your Mini-Split AC and Tower Fan Together

In an era where energy conservation and sustainability are of the utmost importance, it is essential to optimize the efficiency of our cooling systems while reducing power consumption. TOSOT Direct, your trusted source for high-quality air conditioners and tower fans, is committed to helping you achieve this goal.

In this blog post, we will explore energy-saving strategies through the combination use of split air conditioners and tower fans. By implementing these tips, you can enjoy a comfortable living environment while contributing to a greener planet.

Benefits of Split Air Conditioners

Split air conditioners have gained popularity for their efficient cooling capabilities and customizable settings. They consist of two main components: an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit, typically mounted on a wall, cools the air within the room, while the outdoor unit houses the compressor and condenser. Split air conditioners offer several advantages, including individual temperature control, quieter operation, and enhanced energy efficiency compared to traditional window units.

The Advantages of Tower Fans

Tower fans, on the other hand, are versatile appliances that provide excellent air circulation. These slim, space-saving units distribute cool air evenly across the room, making them ideal companions to split air conditioners. Tower fans offer a range of features such as variable speed settings, oscillation, and programmable timers. They are cost-effective alternatives to central air conditioning systems, consuming significantly less energy while effectively improving air circulation and creating a comfortable environment.

The TOSOT Tower Fan also features reusable ice packs for evaporative cooling, a water tank for humidification, and the option to add essential oils, turning your simple tower fan into a versatile aromatherapy machine. 

Complementary Cooling: The Power of Combination

By combining the use of split air conditioners and tower fans, you can maximize cooling efficiency while minimizing energy consumption. Here's how it works:

Zone Cooling

Instead of cooling the entire house or apartment, focus on specific areas using split air conditioners. By targeting occupied spaces, you avoid wasting energy on unoccupied rooms. Complement this approach with strategically placed tower fans to circulate the cooled air effectively throughout your home, saving power and money on your electricity bill.

Fan and AC Coordination

During mild weather, you can rely solely on tower fans, utilizing the natural breeze and avoiding the use of air conditioners altogether. On hotter days, set the air conditioner to a slightly higher temperature and supplement it with tower fans. 

You can increase the circulation of cool air over a larger area by strategically placing fans near A/Cs or central air vents, espcially for those who own a larger living room.The fans will help distribute the cooled air more efficiently throughout the room, allowing you to increase the temperature setting on the air conditioner without sacrificing comfort.

Nighttime Cooling

Use tower fans in conjunction with split air conditioners during the night to create a comfortable sleeping environment. Set the air conditioner to a slightly higher temperature and position tower fans near the bed to circulate the cool air directly. This combination reduces energy consumption while ensuring a restful night's sleep.

Additional Energy-Saving Tips

In addition to combining the use of split air conditioners and tower fans, here are some extra energy-saving strategies:

Regular Maintanance

Keep your cooling systems in optimal condition by cleaning filters regularly and scheduling professional maintenance when necessary. Well-maintained units operate more efficiently, reducing energy consumption, and saving you money.

Use Timers and Programmable Settings

Take advantage of timers and programmable settings on both split air conditioners and tower fans. Program them to turn on or off at specific times to avoid unnecessary usage. You can also use the Gree+ app, available on Apple and Android devices, to remotely control and schedule your favorite TOSOT appliances. (Note: the Gree+ app is not compatible with all appliances at this time.)

Optimize Insulation

Improve the insulation of your living space to minimize heat transfer. Blocking sunlight by pulling down shades or drawing curtains helps prevent rooms from heating up due to strong sunlight.Properly sealed windows, doors, and insulation will help maintain a cool environment and reduce the workload on your cooling systems.


By employing these energy-saving strategies through the combined use of split air conditioners and tower fans, you can achieve significant reductions in power consumption without compromising comfort.
