There are lots of things people want—luxury SUVs, a week on the beach, feather boas, you name it. Then there are things people need—safe shelter, medicine, and love, for example.
Then there’s a much smaller list—things we need AND want. Big industrial ceiling fans are one of those things, especially those made by Big Ass Fans.
Why do people love Big Ass fans so much? And what is it about big industrial ceiling fans that some people can’t live without?
Who Needs Big Industrial Ceiling Fans?
First, let’s talk about why so many people need big warehouse fans. If you’ve ever worked in a large warehouse or factory floor, you probably know how hot it can get during the warmer months of the year. It’s common for warehouses not to have air-conditioning; installing and operating A/C, especially in toastier climates, is very expensive. We’re talking hundreds of thousands of dollars in just one year.
Companies want to avoid those kinds of expenses, especially when margins are already razor thin. But the well-being of their employees is a business’s number-one priority. When a warehouse gets hot and stuffy, workers suffer. Their productivity drops, their ability to concentrate weakens, and the quality of their health becomes a serious concern.
Big industrial ceiling fans have become the go-to solution for companies with overheated facilities. These huge fans are designed to circulate massive volumes of air throughout giant spaces like warehouses. They provide much-needed relief for employees by spreading a continuous breeze across the work area, allowing them to stay healthy, remain focused, and be as productive as possible.
Workers need big industrial ceiling fans for their well-being, while companies need them to take care of their staff, maintain high productivity, and improve their profitability.
Who Wants Big Industrial Ceiling Fans?
When people see big industrial ceiling fans for the first time, they’re almost always amazed.
Their size alone is impressive. Big Ass Fans manufactures industrial ceiling fans that range from 8 feet (2.4 meters) to a whopping 30 feet (9.1 meters) in diameter. That’s two giraffes tall! Their massive airfoils (aka blades) provide the pressure needed to force airflow through a large space—more than 40,000 square feet (12,000 square meters) in some buildings.
It takes a hefty motor and gearbox to rotate those immense airfoils. Big Ass Fans produces the industry’s largest gearbox, capable of spinning those blades reliably—and quietly—for decades. Who wouldn’t want that kind of power?
Aside from the cool factor (pun intended), people want big industrial ceiling fans because they get the job done cost-efficiently. While rates and conditions vary widely, it’s common for companies to spend less than a dollar a day to operate one of these fans. Unlike HVAC systems, they don’t require a lot of energy to run and won’t cut deeply into your operations budget.
