MacroAir - Fans for Places of Worship

Large Commercial Fans for Places of Worship

Big Fans for Places of Worship

MacroAir’s big fans can be a good fit for any space, especially in places of worship. Big commercial ceiling fans are quiet, so parishioners won’t be distracted by fast rotating ceiling fans.

HVLS—High Volume, Low Speed—fans move large amounts of air slowly, making them extremely energy efficient. HVLS fans can provide a level of comfort that standard and small ceiling fans cannot. Having many people gathered in a place of worship can create a hot environment, but a large HVLS fan can effectively cool down large worship spaces for only around $1 per day. If it is too cold in a facility (e.g. in Winter months), simply rotate the fans in the opposite direction to create a heating effect by pushing the warm air from the ceiling down to the floor.
