Kaizen Martial Arts Academy suffered from a classic case of a cavernous building with high ceilings that had very little airflow. In the hot summer months, the 5,000 square foot facility felt less like a fitness center and more like a sweat lodge.
To compensate for the uncomfortable heat, owner Anthony Hanks had been running his A/C around the clock to the tune of $900 a month, with little to no effect on the relative comfort level. Students were breaking a sweat even before they began their training regimen, and the heat distracted them from their focus and concentration.
- Large space with high ceilings and poor airflow
- Inefficient A/C system
- Uncomfortable students and complaints about temperature
- High cooling costs
The installation of a 16-foot MacroAir HVLS fan mounted above the dojo created a large column of air that moved down and out across the floor, providing a refreshing, gentle breeze to the students below. Because the airflow actually accelerated the rate of perspiration evaporating from the skin, students didn’t complain about feeling damp and sticky. And Anthony saw a savings of $1,500 a year on his cooling costs.
