Surprise Benefits of Installing a HVLS fan

HVLS fans are an extremely clever way to keep your employees cool and comfortable, even during the warmer summer months. By integrating energy smart HVLS fans with your existing HVAC unit you can actually save on energy bills and help regulate temperature from ceiling to floor. This can allow a facility to raise its thermostat setting 3 – 5 degrees. This creates a potential energy savings of up to 4% per degree change.

But, what else can these energy efficient fans do for you?

Protect product integrity with better air quality.  I bet you would never guess that a fan could protect the integrity of the products that you are storing in your facility? You see, HVLS fans produce air circulation that helps keep food and produce fresh to prevent spoilage and also assist in protecting nonperishables by keeping them clean and dry.  In addition to this, many users in refrigerated applications have also seen improvements in their indoor environment’s air quality from running their fans in reverse to destratify the air, and create a more even distribution of oxygen.

Improve working conditions. Happy, safe employees should be a top priority for any facility manager. By increasing air circulation and air quality you can help minimize floor condensation, thus keeping loading dock areas drier and ultimately safer for foot and fork lift traffic.  The improved air circulation created by the HVLS fan can enhance indoor air quality in dry storage and other distribution applications by dispersing the harmful fumes produced by the trucks and forks lifts at the dock door during loading and unloading.

The HVLS fan was designed to create a comfortable work environment while keeping facilities running as energy efficiently as possible.  Today, these fans are seeing new and improved uses every day from product sustainability to employee safety and improved air quality from increased circulation, and these energy smart HVLS fans continue to prove a valued addition to any facility.
