Keeping a fitness center cool in the summer months can get expensive: high ceilings, metal roofs, large interior spaces and lots of active people mean that your AC system works overtime. One way to keep your fitness center cool, and lower energy costs, is with HVLS ceiling fans. (Yes, we do seem to find lots of applications for our fans. It’s because they really do help lower temperatures and energy costs!)
One HVLS fan can cool down a 20,000 square foot fitness center. As it turns, the fan creates a nice refreshing breeze that keeps people cool without the blast of refrigerated AC air that causes people to get goosebumps.
Another benefit of HVLS fans is humidity control. If your fitness center or gym has an indoor pool, sauna or locker rooms, you know that humidity, and its subsequent moisture build-up, is a real problem as it leads to mold and mildew. Mold spores float in the air; moisture-saturated surfaces are perfect breeding grounds — which is why it’s important to maintain low humidity indoors. Because HVLS fans help keep a constant temperature as well as continuously circulate fresh air, they help reduce the problems associated with humidity.
In addition, HVLS fans work in tandem with your AC system as they push the cool air down and out along the floor — ensuring your entire facility remains cool, not just parts of it. And finally, as the photo to the right shows, you can have us paint your HVLS fan blades to match your team or facility colors. Now is that cool or what?
