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.

After all, a company is but a group of individuals working together to achieve a common goal. We hope never to lose sight of the fact that every person involved in our company is important, and to keep that personal touch in whatever we do.

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.


Solutions To Your Warehouse Cooling Problems

The dog days of summer are upon us. Historically, “dog days” was an astrological term referring to the appearance of the “Dog Star,” Sirius, on the horizon. These days, most of us associate it with heat when the dogs just lie there panting.

Tips For Cooling Warehouses In The Summer

With the heat of summer around the corner, it’s time to think about ways to keep your warehouse operations running smoothly. Many warehouses don’t have air-conditioning systems, but there are other warehouse cooling options available to keep your crew, equipment and inventory in good shape in spite of the heat.

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.

Preventing Sweating Slabs Syndrome In Airplane Hangars

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.

How HVLS Fans Benefit Small Businesses

Small businesses are always looking for cost-saving ideas for manufacturing, retail and office facilities. Adding high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) small business ceiling fans to any facility is an easy and cost-effective improvement. The benefits are far-reaching, beyond the walls of your business.

Managing Energy Costs In Distribution Centers

Are the maintenance and utility costs in your distribution center getting out of hand? It’s time to think about ways to reduce energy costs!

According to ENERGY STAR®, distribution centers at the 95th percentile in energy consumption use 16 times more energy than those at the fifth percentile. While differing climates, facility sizes and operations account for some of this difference, this illustrates the tremendous savings that can be realized when measures are taken to improve a facility’s energy efficiency.

Why HVLS Fans Are The Better Choice

Big fans are getting popular! In all sorts of environments — from farms to retail, from warehouses and industrial spaces to theaters and restaurants — large HVLS fans are becoming an increasingly common sight. Here are a few reasons why.

The Importance Of Airflow In Barns

“Do I need barn ventilation?”

That’s a question not every livestock owner asks — but they should. Airflow is every bit as important to animal health as it is to human health. Without proper airflow, barn air can get pretty unpleasant. But it’s not just a matter of aesthetics. Improper barn ventilation can damage the structure of the building as well as create significant health and safety hazards for animals and humans alike.

Benefits Of Using HVLS Fans In The Winter

Winter is nearly here, and every property manager knows what that means: It’s time to budget for heating!

While buildings require minimal heat to prevent structural damage in cold weather, it’s another story for their occupants. The ideal temperature for human productivity is 71.6 degrees, according to one Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory study. More than a couple of degrees colder, and the body prioritizes keeping warm over fueling the brain. Simply put, chilly workers make mistakes, which impair productivity, raise labor costs, and can potentially compromise safety.
