Size and Speed Matters When Choosing the Right Fan

Are size and speed important when choosing a ceiling fan? The short answer is yes, because of the large circumference and specially designed fan blades of MacroAir big ceiling fans, it only takes one of our fans to create balanced and comfortable airflow in a large area, compared to 34 small fans to get similar results.

Additionally, The large, slow-moving columns of air created by high volume, low speed (HVLS) fans have a wider reach, reduced noise levels, and operate more efficiently than traditional small fans. In this blog, we will review why fan size and speed are so important when selecting a fan for your space.

The Bigger They Are, the Harder They Breeze



The biggest benefits of using a bigger HVLS fan instead of many smaller industrial fans is the reduction in energy usage. An average small industrial fan spins several times faster than a large ceiling fan. MacroAir fans are designed to move high volumes of air at low speeds. This means you need fewer large fans to achieve what takes many small fans to accomplish.

Slow Airflow Means More Cashflow

Large ceiling fans use a lot less energy than traditional fans because they push a lot of air and they work well with air conditioning systems. A large HVLS fan can reduce the amount of electricity that your HVAC system uses each month, further improving your energy efficiency. In fact, some MacroAir customers have been able to reduce their air conditioning tonnage by a full 25% by turning up their thermostat while running the fans.

MacroAir industrial fans are the latest in innovative large ceiling fan technology, providing a more efficient means of keeping occupants comfortable and businesses sustainable.
