High Volume Low-Speed Fans, also known as HVLS Fans, can improve heating efficiency in the winter and lower the energy bills in an industrial facility. The process of air stratification is when warm air rises and creates layers of different temperatures from floor to ceiling. Without air circulation in a large warehouse, the heating system will have to run more. HVLS Fans allow for the process of DE-stratification to push warm air down and mix the warmer air throughout the building, decreasing the need for running the heating system so hard.

HVLS Fans provide better temperature distribution. They can cover large spaces and move stagnant air about 85 feet in every direction, which ensures even temperatures throughout the facility.

Commercial buildings spend an average of 27% of their energy costs on heating and cooling. HVLS Fans work with your HVAC to ensure heat stays consistent throughout the building.

Comfortability of works is a direct link to both productivity and safety, both of which probably relate to employee retention, too! HVLS Fans keep workers cool in the hot summers and warm in the cold winters.

HVLS Fans can generate up to 30% savings on energy costs in buildings. They are inexpensive to operate and can create significant savings on energy bills. So the Return on Investment can be significant!
