In that situation, most buildings will have a dedicated AC unit for the server room.  If you need to use a fan, be sure to get one designed for a 100% duty cycle, and make sure the room's inlet is low, exhaust is high, and they're as far apart as possible.

You may want to check the server's temp sensors to determine what is an acceptable room temp.  Just because it's uncomfortable for tou doesn't mean the servers aren't OK.
