Industrial Fans: Take Control of Your Heating and Cooling with a Big Ass Fan

With automatic fan recognition and an intuitive touchscreen interface, setup and control of Big Ass Fans is a breeze in any space. Operate the fans manually, or use integrated SmartSense technology to automatically match the speed of the fans to seasonal conditions.

Without industrial fans, it can be a pain to maintain a consistent, comfortable temperature in large buildings like truck shops, manufacturing plants, airplane hangars, and livestock structures.

As heat rises, these larger spaces can have floor-to-ceiling temperature differentials of up to 30°F (16.7°C). 

As a building supplier, we’ve worked on hundreds of projects and found the most elegant solution is often a large, high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fan.

Large HVLS fans are cost-effective, efficient, and easy to install. Most importantly, they move massive amounts of air and the cooling effect of air movement can make a person feel up to 10F (5.6C) cooler.

The Leading Industrial Fans: Big Ass Fans

Big Ass Fans solves the floor-to-ceiling temperature differential pushing hot air down without creating drafts. Spanning up to 24 feet (7.3m) in diameter, a HVLS fan can move air throughout the entire space, from floor to ceiling and wall to wall, including up and over trucks, lifts, and other equipment. This airflow pattern ensures air reaches all corners to maintain consistent conditions throughout.

This steady mixing of air—or destratification—creates a uniform temperature throughout the entire building. The thermostat setpoint remains the same, but the heating system no longer has to work as hard to maintain it, reducing both energy costs and consumption. 

Instead of a 30°F temperature differential, you could be looking at 30 percent savings on your heating costs. The result is similar to turning the thermostat down 3°F – 5°F (2°C – 3°C).

Big Ass Fans employ their own R&D lab, which ensures their product will outperform the competition from the engineering to the materials to the performance.

Our supplier, the HVLS industry leader Big Ass Fans, are specifically designed for commercial spaces, have patented gearless motors, which eliminate the audible mechanical noise that can be created by gearbox friction. Add advanced onboard controls to prevent electrical “noise” and you have a Big Ass Fan that runs quietly at maximum operating speed.
