MacroAir’s high volume, low speed (HVLS) ceiling fans are guaranteed to help with airflow and ventilation. This is how it all works: Air travels straight down and then moves along the floor outward towards the walls. No matter what space you’re looking to cool (or even heat), an HVLS industrial ceiling fan can do the job. Most think the application of HVLS fans is only appropriate for a large space such as warehouses or manufacturing spaces, but an HVLS fan can work in many more spaces than you might think!
HVLS Farm Fans
The invention of HVLS fan technology was inspired by the dairy industry when farmers discovered that cooler cows produce more milk. A large-farm outdoor ceiling fan can also control moisture, which decreases the chance of your dairy cattle getting infections. Air circulation’s moisture reduction also keeps insects and birds away. Keeping insects and birds away using a large amount of slow-moving air flow from an HVLS fan can help keep agricultural areas disease free.
A high-volume, low-speed fan can be a perfect way for farms to keep their animals cool. The hotter the animals, the less productive they are. An HVLS fan will help cool your animals, make them more comfortable, and overall more productive. On top of that, the air movement from the fan will help keep bugs and insects away from animals, making them happier than ever.
Ceiling Fans for Automotive Shops
HVLS fans in the automotive industry are a big hit because of their ability to circulate air in a space where heat and fumes are generated. The heat and fumes make it dangerous and uncomfortable for employees working inside the building, but thankfully HVLS fans can circulate the air, making it comfortable and safe.
Air control in automotive facilities can help:
- Remove the fume and chemical pollutants that are associated with cars and automotive parts
- Decrease the transmission of airborne disease by reducing moisture accumulation that spreads germs and bacteria
- Maintain energy efficiency
HVLS fans can keep any automotive facility at a comfortable temperature, which creates a healthy environment for workers, eliminates harmful fumes, conserves energy and improves air quality all at the same time.
Airport Hanger Industrial Ceiling Fans
It isn’t easy to keep temperatures at a comfortable level in garages and hangars, especially if they have high ceilings and fluctuating occupancy.
All of these facility characteristics call for huge air movement from big ceiling fans with a large blade span to keep airport staff and travelers comfortable. MacroAir’s HVLS fans can be found in aviation warehouses, airports and even in large aircraft hangars. Our fans can cool 22,000 square feet!
Big Fans for Educational Institutions
Educational institutions experience a number of benefits when they use HVLS fans. For starters, keeping an educational space cool and comfortable can encourage productivity and collaboration amongst students and staff. HVLS fans can also cut down on heat and cooling costs throughout large campuses by supplementing HVAC systems and being an energy-saving, cost-effective means of air distribution.
Moving the Air in Garages
For garage workers, the summer heat can be dreadful, especially when garage doors are constantly opening and closing, seriously disrupting air temperatures. When garage doors are closed, and there is no air movement, the garage can be 20 degrees higher than the temperature outside.
An HVLS ceiling fan can help create air movement and make it more the garage-work environment more bearable, even when there is no air conditioning. The airflow generated by an HVLS fan can keep people cool by using evaporative cooling, where airflow evaporates the sweat from the skin and creates a cooling effect.
Indoor Sports Ceiling Fans
Most gym owners rely on an HVAC system or the outside air to keep their gyms cool. If they do not utilize an HVLS fan, the environment can become humid and uncomfortable because the HVAC system is not removing an efficient amount of moisture or providing enough air circulation. Humid, moist air can harbor bacteria, generate a hot and uncomfortable space, and even cause unpleasant smells.
HVLS fans can balance out air movement and cool down a musty gym, creating a better experience for gym members.
Large Commercial Ceiling Fans for Public Spaces
Public spaces like restaurant patios, stadium concourses and other outdoor public gathering spaces can all benefit from HVLS fans. Everybody will feel more comfortable outside during hot summer days, without having to ramp up an HVAC system.
As long as your outdoor space is covered, an outdoor fan can be installed. HVLS fans create less noise, operate efficiently, reduce energy costs and can even create a better aesthetic for your outdoor space.
Restaurant Ceiling Fans
Restaurants that use an HVLS large ceiling fan creates a better dining experience for all. Restaurant ceiling fans help customers and employees feel more comfortable and also add an aesthetic look that people love.
Restaurants have to figure out how to make their space feel fresh, but that is hard to do when ventilation and air movement are poor. When people want to enjoy food and drinks, they do not want to feel stuffy and hot. HVLS fans can help create air movement and cool down your restaurant space to keep customers wanting to come back for more!
Restaurant Ceiling Fans
HVLS fans are not just for manufacturing and warehouse spaces. They can work well in small spaces, spaces with a low ceiling, garages, gyms, restaurants and even outdoor spaces.
From reversible blades to remote control access to extra quiet motor design, we have an industrial fan that suits your efficiency needs.
Have a space that needs more airflow to cool down or heat up? An HVLS fan can do the job, no matter what size the space is.
