The Differences Between HVLS Fans And Air Conditioning

If you’ve ever been shopping in the summer, you know how amazing it feels to walk from the hot sun into the cool oasis of a store. Either fans or air conditioning — or a combination of both — can be used to create this refreshing effect.

Benefits Of HVLS Fans For Dairy Farms

At first glance, an HVLS fan looks a lot like a household ceiling fan, except bigger — a LOT bigger. (Our largest overhead dairy farm fan, the Z-Tech™, measures 24 feet in diameter!) They’re large on purpose; it allows one fan motor to move huge amounts of air far more efficiently than a bunch of smaller fans ever could.

How Your Ceiling Fan Works

Everyone knows what a ceiling fan is — a motor hanging from the ceiling with blades that spin and help us feel cool during summer. But how many of us actually know how ceiling fans work? There are many common misconceptions about ceiling fans and how they operate, but don’t worry — understanding ceiling fan physics isn’t as daunting as it sounds.

The Best Cooling Solution For Gyms

Heat and humidity. Wonderful things to enjoy in the sauna, not so great for working out at the gym. And for gym and health club owners, they also can add up to a higher monthly utility bill.

Discover How HVLS Fans Can Help Animals

Since their invention in the 1990s, high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fans have exploded in popularity as a cost-effective, energy-efficient solution for cooling large interior spaces. From warehouses to swanky restaurants, people in many indoor environments appreciate the comfort and cost-saving benefits of HVLS fans. However, did you know that these big commercial or industrial ceiling fans were invented to help animals?

5 Ways Your Retail Business Can Benefit From HVLS Fans

Invented in the late 1990s, HVLS fans are a relatively new technology, but they’re already revolutionizing indoor climate control in large buildings.

Tips For Installing An HVLS Fan

How To Improve Employee Safety And Productivity

It’s annual planning time: time to sit down, roll up your sleeves, crunch the numbers, and decide how you’re going to meet next year’s strategic goals for your warehouse facility or distribution center.

Cooling Your Facility Without A/C

Air conditioning. Once, it was considered a luxury. Now, A/C is a standard feature in most workplaces. But for warehouses, barns and many other facility types, air conditioning is simply not always the most practical option. It can be expensive to install or run. It’s not always effective at cooling large areas. Plus, in some facilities, the need or desire to keep doors or windows open can make it difficult or impossible to use A/C.

Industrial Fans: Why Bigger Is Better

Regulating temperature and air quality in large commercial and industrial spaces can be challenging. Proper ventilation and air flow is essential to help maintain consistent temperatures throughout the space and to keep air fresh for employees and customers. And because these spaces can be expensive and difficult to heat and cool, facilities managers are always on the lookout for technology that can reduce operating costs while improving performance.
