“ The Big Ass Fans are impressive looking and clearly move a lot of air, and everyone can tell a difference with the lights. The products are exceptional. Jim Walker, Manager
Luxury automaker Aston Martin’s Washington D.C. dealership struggled with a 40-year-old HVAC system that made it difficult to maintain internal temperatures. Extreme seasonal weather and the facility’s tall ceilings compounded the problem. The location’s maintenance shop also was in dire need of a lighting upgrade, as the poor output of overhead halide sodium lights made routine car inspections a pain. The dealership sought updates that would not only reflect the level of quality of the luxury brand, but also provide comfortable working conditions for the employees servicing those vehicles.
With an eye for quality, Aston Martin Washington D.C. selected two Powerfoil®X2.0 fans from Big Ass Fans® and around 50 LED fixtures from Big Ass Light™. The fans provide breezes that make workers feel up to 10°F (5.6°C) cooler in the summer months. In colder temperatures, the Big Ass Fans gently push rising warm air off the ceiling, saving the dealership up to 30 percent on heating bills. Meanwhile, the Big Ass Light LED fixtures require far less energy than the previous halide sodium lights. In fact, Walker was so impressed with the Big Ass Light fixtures that he later installed several in his home garage.
