Featured Case Study: Cassidy Elementary School

In tall educational spaces, direct-drive HVLS Fans (like Essence) are a clear choice, especially when there is a need to minimize additional background noise and reduce the energy consumption of the HVAC units. Eric P. Steva, AIA, LEED BD+C, Ross Tarrant Architects, Lexington, Kentucky

Summary

Cassidy worked with Big Ass Fans® to install two 10-ft (3m) Essence® fans to replace the other ones. The Essence models decreased temperature differences in the space by 72 percent, and the HVAC system ran 15.7 percent less when the fans were on. Best of all for the library, the Essence fans were quiet: testing revealed only a 1.7 dBA increase in the overall noise of the space when they were running. (The previous fans nearly doubled the sound levels in the library.) Essence proved to be a perfect fit for the library, providing energy savings without interrupting learning.
