HVLS Fans (High Volume, Low Speed) are designed to move slowly and distribute large amounts of air at low rotational speed. Typically used in large warehouses or factory areas, technology improvements options has increased the demand for them. The HVLS Fan prevents product spoilage in warehouses with high storage areas where temperature is much warmer. Improve airflow, save on energy and reduce perceived temperature by 7-11 degrees. Moisture levels are also reduced, keeping your floors drier and safer. In addition, commercial HVLS fans set in reverse during the winter months bring cool air up and warm air down to floor level. Overall, HVLS industrial fans serve as a year-long tool to save on energy costs and increase employee comfort levels. Click to see how they work.
The benefits of having HVLS Fans in the Winter
During the Winter season, we all work to warm the spaces we live, play and work in. The larger the space, the more expensive the task. As we heat our space, stratification occurs, (all your warm air naturally rises to the highest point inside your space). Within a facility colder temperature can sometimes make it uncomfortable for staff, thus decreasing productivity. The solution, is using de-stratification HVLS fans which are purposely designed to force that hot air back down to ground level. This makes the space more comfortable to work in and in turn, your employees more productive worker.
The major benefit will arrive when you see your heating bill. On average, our de-stratifying fans save between 20-30% on your heating cost. We use one of the leading de-stratification HVLS fans in the industry manufactured by Enviro-North.
