    Year-round Energy Savings

    Big Ass overhead fans work with your HVAC to provide significant energy savings.

    • In summer, the fans’ cooling effect means the a/c can be set several degrees higher.
    • In winter, fans push the heat down from the ceiling, decreasing the work of your heater and leading to savings as high as 30 percent.
  • Unrivaled Warranties

    • Enjoy your fan, worry-free, with a lifetime hub and airfoil warranty.
    • Guaranteed 10-year non-prorated warranty on all components with our Factory Certified Installation in commercial locations. (5-year non-prorated warranty without our Factory Certified Installation.)
