Heat Destratification

Big Ass Fans are the highest quality, most meticulously engineered fans on the planet. And they aren’t just for the warmer months—they can save you money and keep you comfortable year round.

Stratification occurs because air from a heater, which is approximately 5-7% lighter than cool air, tends to rise to the ceiling. In the winter, Big Ass Fans are slowed, not reversed, to efficiently destratify heat, slowly moving large volumes of warm air off the ceiling without creating a draft. The steady mixing of air creates a uniform temperature throughout the space, which helps the heater maintain the same thermostat setpoint with less effort, resulting in a serious reduction of operating costs – over 30% in some cases! Providing a quick return on investment is more than enough to make you feel all warm and cozy inside.

Creating and maintaining consistent temperatures from ceiling to floor and wall to door can also reduce condensation and its buddy, corrosion, as well as mitigate mold.
