Big Ass Fans are the highest quality, most meticulously designed fans on the planet. And they aren’t just for the warmer months—they can save you money and keep you comfortable year round.
Stratification occurs because air from a heater, which is approximately 5-7% lighter than cool air, tends to rise to the ceiling. In the winter, Big Ass Fans are slowed, not reversed, to efficiently destratify heat, slowly moving large volumes of warm air off the ceiling without creating a draft. The steady mixing of air creates a uniform temperature throughout the space, which helps the heater maintain the same thermostat setpoint with less effort, resulting in a serious reduction of operating costs – over 30% in some cases! Providing a quick return on investment is more than enough to make you feel all warm and cozy inside.
Creating and maintaining consistent temperatures from ceiling to floor and wall to door can also reduce condensation and its buddy, corrosion, as well as mitigate mold.
Nature put us on earth with a built-in air conditioner: Smart. Big Ass Fans are designed to make the most of it: Smarter.
OSHA standards indicate temperatures of 100.4°F (38°C) and above are dangerous for workers, while air temperatures that exceed 95°F (35°C) significantly increase the heat load on the body. When temperature and humidity levels rise, the body’s natural ability to cool itself decreases. While air movement does not lower the actual temperature in a space, the perceived cooling effect can make a person feel up to 10°F (5.6°C) cooler.
And Big Ass Fans aren’t only for non-conditioned facilities – by using energy-efficient fans in conjunction with air conditioning, building managers can raise their air conditioning setpoint to save energy while maintaining thermal comfort. Specifying Big Ass Fans during new construction can also help builders reduce HVAC tonnage and ductwork, saving money before the fans are even turned on.
