Tighter budgets have caused large chains and independent retailers to re-evaluate sustainability practices in existing facilities while focusing on eco-friendly construction of new buildings. Research indicates that green building not only reduces up-front cost in many instances, but also minimizes operational expense. Sustainability is no longer just a trend in the retail industry; it’s becoming a mandate. Want to make a bold statement about your commitment to sustainability while simultaneously lowering energy costs? Big Ass Fans impact your customers and your bottom line with stunningly efficient operation.
For a 12,000-square-foot retail store scenario, one 20-ft Element would operate at higher speeds during the summer to enhance the cooling capacity of the HVAC system. During the heating season, Element is used for extended periods to prevent extreme temperature differences and alleviate the heating load on the HVAC system. With doors constantly opening and closing, Big Ass Fans recirculates trapped heat at the ceiling and creates a more comfortable shopping environment.
In most instances, small ceiling fans don’t provide the desired air circulation, nor do they offer the technological advancements found exclusively within Big Ass Fans. A practical showpiece, one commercial Big Ass Fan can cover more than 36 times the area of a traditional fan. With a wide range of customizable colors, finishes and accessories, Element and Isis can match your décor or stand out as a design element. Both fans employ proprietary prime movers, replacing the induction motor and gearbox used in industrial models to ensure silent, maintenance free operation. But, talk is cheap. That’s why Element and Isis are backed by a non-prorated ten year warranty, with Factory Installation, meaning the warranty doesn’t change from year one to year ten.
In today’s economic and environmental climate, retailers frequently rely on new, innovative products to reduce operating costs and energy consumption. From warehouse-esque retail giants to boutiques and specialty shops, Big Ass Fans provide air movement solutions as elegant as they are powerful.
Haiku, the most efficient small ceiling fan, makes a bold statement about your commitment to sustainability and quality design.
