We decided to install Ameriwind fans rather than circulating fans because there was not a big difference in the initial cost of the fans. Plus, the cost of running the Ameriwind fans is considerably less because they require less voltage. And, the Ameriwind fans push air down and creates air movement between the cows and throughout the barn.
I manage the shop and do the really technical repairs after hours for better concentration. If I leave the doors open, people keep coming. If I close the doors it gets so hot. With the big 18” AmeriWind ceiling fan, I can leave the front doors shut, and it's still comfortable. I really appreciate how well the fan works.
We first had another brand of large ceiling fan in our shop, then we also installed several AmeriWind fans. The AmeriWind fans move the same amount of air, but they don't make near as much noise. We like the fact that AmeriWind is a direct drive so it doesn't have a noisy gearbox like the other brand.
We eliminated the mold on our pallets by installing 6 AmeriWind fans above our pallet storage area. The fans have worked very well
