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.
- 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.)
- Big Ass Solutions handles all warranties without redirecting you to component manufacturers. We make it, we sell it, we install it and we guarantee it.
- See our Commercial Warranty for more information.
