Welcome to the Go Fan Yourself® blog!

We appreciate that you’ve taken the time to dig a little deeper into who we are as a company. We believe that a blog is not just a platform for us to wax poetic about our products. Instead, we see it as an opportunity to connect with you on a more personal level.

So, in all our posts, we promise to do our best to show a personal side as well as to give you a more in-depth glimpse into what we do and what Go Fan Yourself® is as a company. And, to not just make announcements that are of interest to us, but to address some of the most common questions and concerns our customers have about our products, policies and philosophy.


Why HVLS Fans Are Your Best Bet For Cooling Large Spaces

Any facility manager can tell you: Regulating the temperature in warehouses, lecture halls, and other large rooms or open buildings can be ultra-challenging. A big part of that challenge has to do with air flow. An HVAC system tends to dump cool or hot air into a space, without distributing it. This can lead to problems in large spaces.

How HVLS Fans Enhance Industrial Environments

The average working person spends a little over a third of their waking hours at work. The environment they work in thus has very significant impact on their health and well-being. Anything in the work environment that leads to discomfort can negatively impact employee morale, health and productivity. When that happens, no one benefits.

How Fast Does Your Investment In HVLS Fans Pay For Itself?

For many companies, HVAC represents a significant chunk of monthly overhead.

Environmental Benefits Of HVLS Fans

High-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fans are causing a revolution in the way large, open-space, industrial and commercial facilities handle the challenges of air quality control. It’s no wonder, considering the benefits these energy-efficient fans provide. Areas of major concern for managers of large facilities have pushed the use of HVLS fans to the forefront of air quality control.


How HVLS Fans Can Benefit Restaurants

Every restaurant owner knows as important as it is to serve great food, it’s the quality of the service you provide that keeps your customers coming back. Good service goes beyond having a friendly, polite staff to include the physical environment you create in your restaurant. Providing your customers with a comfortable, pleasant environment in which to enjoy their dining experience is one of the most powerful ways to show them you care.

Airplane hangars are made of concrete slabs and tall metal walls, with slightly pitched or arched metal roofs. Pretty simple, right? But without adequate moisture control in this wide open space, you’ll also find these costly problems.
