When it comes to big industrial fans, I often get asked, What are the differences between AmerWind and Big Ass fans®? We both offer high-quality, durable products that can move a lot of air. We are writing this from AmeriWind’s perspective, but what are the differences between the two? Let's take a look:
Don't let summer heat hinder your company's success in retaining labor.
The most significant difference is that AmeriWind fan tips are red.Big Ass Fan’s® motors and tips are trademarked yellow.
Electricity rates have gone through the roof, and you can save electricity by making warmer conditions hospitable and even eliminating AC or reducing its duty cycle. A 5MPH breeze will allow your AC to be 8° warmer.
AC can be limited when it comes to cooling the entire space. Since the cold air from an AC unit can't push the air in all directions, you may still end up with hot and stagnant air pockets. Cold air from air conditioning sinks to the floor. HVLS fan will eliminate extra ducting needed in these areas without natural airflow.
"I'll just buy a bunch of shop fans."
The concept here is not that fans are better than AC simply because they move air around. Corded pedestal fans are great at blowing air in one direction. They don't solve the problem of cooling an ample industrial or commercial space. Bulky cords all over the floors can be a tripping hazard. Don't waste your money if you have large areas. HVLS industrial ceiling fans work.
Its been proven that large brands often spend a significant amount on advertising. For example a 15% advertising expense means your $7000 purchase blows $1000 in the wind on advertising because those expenses get passed onto you as a consumer. With us as a smaller company we are able to give you a more personalized experience and don't have near the budget. It makes us more efficient and saves you$$.
Not only that but mixing the air in the room can also reduce the time it takes to warm occupants to desired temperatures. This sustainable solution can lead to a 15% reduction in usage for HVAC systems, which is a massive saving over time.
The most significant improvement you will notice is lower energy costs. Industrial ceiling fans can cut 30 percent off your cooling costs in the summer. There are extra benefits to using HVLS fans.
Using big ceiling fans in warehouses keeps products at a safe temperature by consistently circulating air. The air movement ensures even temperatures for consumer goods. Even temperatures eliminate spoiling from micro-environments with a temperature-controlled space. Don't accidentally let critical skids go over temperature.
Using big ceiling fans for manufacturing will keep your workers and equipment cool and dry. The fan will eliminate excess moisture from condensation, and rust won't destroy your building or machines. Employees can maintain a steady pace since they won't suffer heat exhaustion. They won't need extra breaks or shorter hours. Maintain your business' constant output and success regardless of outside heat.
The ISO 50001 policy requires companies to lower energy usage, and large industrial ceiling fans improve real-life working conditions. They do this even while meeting ISO 50001 requirements. It's a dual benefit, helping corporate and your workforce meet 50001 specs with a big ceiling fan.
After working with other fan brands, we discovered design changes to optimize fan design. A common problem was blades and hubs fatiguing from crosswinds until they broke. We used those past experiences when we designed AmeriWind fans. We designed thicker walled blades with internal supports and 5/16th steel hubs. These improvements make them strong enough for open-sided agriculture buildings. It also eliminates unsightly guy wires in many installations.
Gearboxes are great while they work, but after eight years, we experienced issues. The shaft goes straight down through the oil sump in HVLS fan applications. Fans are up at the ceiling, and leaks don't get noticed until too late. Minor oil leaks took out gearboxes.
We have decided gearbox shafts need to come out of the sides. Then a leak will only drain some of the oil. There is no way to do this with HVLS fans. We decided to eliminate oil problems by only using direct magnet propulsion.
