We just had 2 mini split air conditioners put in our home, which previously did not have air conditioning.  We have ceiling fans in every room and I am wondering how to use the fans in conjunction with the air conditioners that are at ceiling level.  Should the fans be on summer mode?  What speed is good to use to enhance the distribution of the cool air in the rooms?  

We usually keep the fans on high to keep the air moving, but with the air conditioners, I am not sure if the warm air near the ceiling is making the compressors work more.  

Any advice out there?

Thanks.

Thanks.  A very reasonable, practical answer.  We have done our experimenting and ceiling fans, on low, seem to make us comfortable.
