“ Big Ass Fans have improved air circulation a ridiculous amount! We've even seen a 20 percent savings on power bills, and members are really happy that it feels so much cooler in the gym now. Sandy King, Regional Manager
Anytime Fitness Hamilton in Queensland, Australia, is the state’s most awarded Anytime Fitness, but the air inside reflected the impact of every curl, crunch, lift and lunge. Members consistently complained about stuffy, stagnant conditions so management lowered the thermostat setpoint to 70°F (21°C) – well below their preferred 75°F (24°C). Members were more comfortable, but power bills spiked dramatically. Anytime Fitness Hamilton needed a way to keep its clientele cool without breaking the bank.
One 12-ft (3.7-m) Essence® and two Haiku® fans by Big Ass Fans® generate the airflow that Anytime Fitness Hamilton requires to accomplish both goals. Members remain comfortable even during the gym’s busiest hours. The staff maintain the thermostat setpoint at a steady 75°F (24°C) and often leave the air conditioning off entirely during early morning hours, resulting in a 20 percent savings on power bills. The fans also improved the space’s air quality, clearing the sweaty odor that can plague fitness facilities.
