Some people are under the impression that all large warehouse ceiling fans are more or less the same. But making an investment in keeping your employees feeling cool and being productive involves more than a few blades rotating above their heads.
Before deciding which large warehouse ceiling fan is best for you, consider asking several relevant questions. Which fan will get the job done? What are all the costs associated with purchasing a fan? How much support will you get from the manufacturer? What are you really buying?
Let’s unpack some of those questions to find out which fan provides the solutions you need.
What You Need to Know About Large Warehouse Ceiling Fans
Anyone who’s worked in a hot warehouse knows just how miserable it can get. As the temperature rises outside, the ability for people to focus and maintain energy inside becomes increasingly difficult.
An employer who cares about the wellbeing and productivity of their workers needs a solution to cool things down. Air conditioning is super expensive and requires a ton of energy to operate. Large warehouse ceiling fans, however, provide all the cooling benefits at a fraction of the cost.
HVLS (high-volume, low-speed) fans have become the go-to solution for helping people feel cooler in hot warehouses. Their large size, energy-efficient operation, and ingenious design do a spectacular job of circulating air.
You can find large warehouse ceiling fans from several manufacturers, but not all brands are the same. The best fans are more than just airfoils and a motor. Big Ass Fans has created patented airfoil profiles—not just blades—tailored to deliver air where you need it most.
In addition to doing the hard work of improving airflow, your next large warehouse ceiling fan should help you reduce your overall costs, be 100% safe and worry-free, and come with complete support during the life of your fan—which should be years upon years.
