“ We have twice the amount of space and rooftop units in our new building, but our gas bill is lower. Big Ass Fans prove themselves right there. Donald Peinado, General Manager
Custom Vinyl Products Inc., moved to a new 40,000-sq-ft (3,716-sq-m) facility to help streamline its window manufacturing process. The additional space was welcome, but the minimally-insulated steel and cinderblock building was seriously lacking in terms of comfort. The heating and air conditioning units struggled to keep the space warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Custom Vinyl needed an efficient way to circulate conditioned air throughout the building without installing expensive ductwork.
Custom Vinyl installed three 18-ft (5.5-m) diameter Powerfoil®X fans by Big Ass Fans®. The fans work in tandem with the facility’s rooftop units, providing air circulation to all employees. This increased air circulation provides a comfortable working environment for employees at Custom Vinyl year round. The use of the fans, combined with insulation and lighting upgrades, has resulted in a significant decrease in utility costs, providing comfort and savings to this growing manufacturing company.
