When it comes to ceiling fans in warehouses, size really does matter. So do placement, speed, efficiency, and a long list of other variables. How do you know just how big your warehouse ceiling fan needs to be? And is there such a thing as too big?
Big Ass Fans has answers.
We’re the world’s leading manufacturer of big warehouse fans, and we also invented them. So if you want the best information about big ceiling fans, you’re in the right place.
The Benefits of Warehouse Ceiling Fans
Not all fans are created equal. The average ceiling fan you might have in your bedroom is perfect for a small room. You can feel the breeze as it cools you off. It can even make a room warmer in the winter by forcing hot air downward.
But when it comes to combating the heat in a huge space like a warehouse, small ceiling fans just aren’t able to get the job done. No matter how fast they spin, they’re just not able to circulate air well and cool down your employees.
Big fans work differently than small fans because, well, they’re bigger. Their long airfoils are powerful enough to move large amounts of air through a warehouse. Even though they rotate at a slower speed, warehouse cooling fans are much more effective at airflow.
The result? Your hot and sweaty workers are happier because the breeze flows across their skin, making them feel cooler. And making them more productive.
The best part is that warehouse fans are energy efficient, reducing energy bills dramatically. That makes big ceiling fans far more economical than air conditioning or other cooling systems.
How Big Are Big Warehouse Ceiling Fans
When we say big, we mean BIG. The best cooling fans for warehouses can reach up to 30-feet (9.1 meters) in diameter. Everything about them is large: the Neodymium magnet motor, the gearbox, the mounting system, and the extensive safety features. And the results are even bigger.
Big Ass Fans offers a variety of widths to meet the needs of any sized warehouse space, factory floor, distribution center, or other huge building. Our warehouse cooling fans range in diameter from 8-feet to 30-feet.
We got our company name from the reaction people often have when they first see one of our warehouse ceiling fans. “Now, that’s a big ass fan!”
