“ Big Ass Fans are a phenomenal asset. Just a breeze changes your attitude in a hot, sweaty shop. They make you more effective and cut your day in half. I wouldn't come to work without Big Ass Fans. We're so happy with everything. Mark Worman, Executive Producer, Graveyard Carz
Mark Worman, shop owner and executive producer of Velocity’s Graveyard Carz, recently moved his business into a renovated 22,000-sq-ft (2,044-sq-m) building, which includes machine, paint and assembly shops where his team restores classic muscle cars. Transforming rusted hulls into gleaming, road-ready automobiles is labor-intensive, and productivity in the shop ties directly to employee comfort. “The shop is a sweat box in the summer and a freezer in the winter,” Worman said. The Graveyard Carz crew needed a way to keep comfortable year round.
An Essence®, Powerfoil®X2.0, and two Yellow Jacket® fans from Big Ass Fans® keep the Graveyard Carz team comfortable and productive year-round. Since Worman more than doubled the size of his shop, he expected soaring energy bills. Instead, the Big Ass Fans lowered his bills. “I was prepared for a $1,500 per month bill, but we haven’t seen half of that,” said Worman. Meanwhile, the Yellow Jackets offer more than just a cooling breeze. Worman uses them to blow fumes and Bondo dust out of the shop, keeping workspaces clean and the air clear.
