Is there a way to make the fan kick on and then it start cooling only when the thermostat tells it to? Then after it has reached the desired cool temp, all turn off? Then repeat again. This would be just like your home ac system that cycles the fan and compressor on and off at the same time.
No easy way that I know of.
The continuous fan takes advantage of all the cooling that was generated, plus keeps the air circulating.
When the fan shuts off, the air becomes very still, quickly.
