Proper maintenance on a ceiling fan, especially in an environment like a hotel room is more than just wiping down the blades. Dust and other particles are on top of the blades and in the motor housing. Unlike a window air con, ceiling fans don’t have a filter that traps most of the dust particles. Ceiling fans have a pretty delicate balance (most have small weights to provide balance) and constant cleaning can throw that balance off pretty quickly. Wobbly fan blades are extremely likely to break or fall, but they’re really scary to look at and listen to.
There’s also the odd balance when using fans plus air-con. Unlike air-cons, fans don’t actually lower the temp of the room. And it actually heats up the room slightly because of the heat from the motor. It just feels cooler where the breeze hits you. Step outside of the air zone and it feels hotter. In a hotel room, if you raise the air con temp to feel comfortable when you’re in the fan’s air zone, you’ll feel hotter when you step out of it and complain that the room was bad because of the hot and cold spots. If you just used the air con, the entire room would eventually settle to roughly the same temp, feeling more comfortable anywhere you move.
