Nature put us on earth with a built-in air conditioner: Smart. We engineer our Big Ass Fans to make the most of it: Smarter.
OSHA standards indicate temperatures of 100.4 F and above are dangerous for workers, while air temperatures that exceed 95 F significantly increase the heat load on the body. When temperature and humidity levels rise, the body’s natural ability to cool itself decreases. While air movement does not lower the actual temperature in a space, the perceived cooling effect can make a person feel 10 F cooler.
Big Ass Fans aren’t only for non-conditioned facilities—managers of conditioned buildings can also raise their air conditioning setpoint and utilize energy-efficient fans to maintain thermal comfort. Customers and employees will feel the same level of comfort, which the building can maintain with far less energy. Specifying Big Ass Fans during new construction can also help builders to reduce HVAC tonnage and ductwork, saving money before the fans are ever turned on!
Energy efficiency and cost effectiveness: Smart.
