Featured Case Study: Cavanaugh Flight Museum

"Our mechanics are much happier because Texas summers are quite hot, and the fans help keep them cool and comfortable. Everyone is impressed with the fans when they come on." Leslie Shaw, Finance Manager, Addison, TX


Shaw turned to Big Ass Fans to combat the heat-related problems. The museum installed two 24-ft. Basic 6™ fans to circulate air and create a comfortable environment for both mechanics in the hangar and patrons renting the space. Although the fans don’t change the temperatures, they do create a pleasant breeze that makes workers and museum visitors feel up to 10°F (6°C) cooler. Shaw expects to see an effect on the bottom line, too. “With the fans, we can use the event hangar year round, which will improve our revenue.”
