Keeping cool in the summer is vital to productivity if you own, operate, or work in an ample space. Big Industrial Ceiling Fans can be the perfect solution for you. They help keep the temperature comfortable, use less energy, and reduce costs. HVLS fans run in warehouses, factories, distribution centers, sporting facilities, event spaces, barns, and agricultural production centers. No matter your business, you can keep comfortable while working regardless of the summer heat.
Don't let summer heat hinder your company's success in retaining labor.
Yes! Cooling large industrial or commercial spaces with air conditioning is expensive. It can be inefficient and impractical. If exterior doors are open a lot, the air exchange will be greater than the AC unit can handle. If vehicles are driving in and out, the doors stay open all the time, making AC impossible.
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.
What is an HVLS ceiling fan, and how does it work?
Industrial grade ceiling fans are High-Volume, Low-Speed fans also called HVLS ceiling fans. These fans have aerodynamic blades that let them move air quickly. HVLS ceiling fans move large amounts of air at low rotational speeds. They result in a pleasant breeze over a large area. Your first thought for fans may be to get one that goes as fast as possible to get the air whipping around the workspace. HVLS ceiling fans are more intelligent than that.
The fan creates a column of air that moves down. Once the air reaches the floor, it moves sideways toward the walls. It cycles through the space continually. This system keeps air moving throughout the area, creating an air conditioning effect. Technically the temperature isn't drastically lower than the heat outside. It feels much more comfortable while using dramatically less energy than AC.
