Depending on where you are, summer is the ideal time that HVLS  Industrial Fans come in handy. If you are experiencing heat and humidity in your facility or property and it’s affecting your staff and products, this technology can improve these conditions all that. For industrial facilities, this shift in weather can cause unforeseen issues and problems that can impact your operating costs. Smaller, high-velocity fans cause tiny air streams that quickly diffuse the air where as, HVLS industrial fans rely on their largeness, to distribute air. HVLS industrial fans use their large size to circulate considerable amounts of air and consume power at a fraction of the cost while remaining energy efficient.

An HVLS industrial fan works by moving air towards the floor in the shape of a column.  This column ensures that the air diffuses air in multiple directions which causes air to flow in a horizontal direction and then back towards the fan itself once it reaches a barrier.  What this means is that the air current moves in a convection style.  With an increase in air circulation, this means that humid air gets replaced with dry air.  HVLS fans also have the benefit of being nearly silent and if spaced out properly within a facility, they disperse the air evenly over a large space.  This is not to say that HVLS industrial fans only provide a benefit during the warmer seasons – during the winter, they can redistribute air trapped by the roof back down to floor level.  HVLS fans have the benefit of circulating air and keeping your facility cool year-round.

When You Need One
Picking out a fan is like picking out your counter tops-there are many different styles and shapes available, and they all have different purposes. With so many applications that HVLS fans can be used in, it is beneficial having a trained consultant to come in and walk you through where the fans need to go for ultimate efficiency.  With their growing popularity in the “green” movement, HVLS fans are an excellent choice for keeping your facility cool without the noise and disturbance of multiple fans. Here are some benefits of HVLS fans;

  • They can help in decreasing your cooling costs
  • They can lower operational costs by having a piece of equipment that requires less frequent maintenance hours (depending on your fan)
  • Heat and humidity may be a safety hazard to staff and visitors. HVLS fans can alleviate these conditions
  • Depending on the products in your facility, weather or lack of  circulation can cause it to spoil. HVLS fans can ensure this does not happen
