Using the air conditioner in fan mode - Costly?

My air condition has a mode that allows it to use the Aircon unit more as a fan than anything else.

My stand fan recently broke down after years of service, and I have no idea whether my parents actually do intend to get a new fan. The stand fan has been dead since the start of the year... I live in southeast Asia, where the weather is extremely warm and humid. With summer coming up, things will only get worse. Running the air condition all day will be really costly. But if I ran it on the fan mode, will it be less costly? That's my question. Hope you guys can help me out. Thanks :)
