Airflow Performance
4/5

es6’s direct-drive motor and six aircraft-grade aluminum airfoils can move nearly 10,000 cubic feet (283 cubic meters) of air per minute. The brushless DC motor and aerodynamic airfoil design minimize mechanical friction and wind resistance, keeping airflow consistent throughout the coverage area.

Airflow Coverage Area
4/5

A 72-inch (183-centimeter) es6 can provide airflow over an area of 522 square feet (48 square meters). This coverage area makes es6 an effective option to improve occupant comfort and air circulation in the smaller spaces common to residential and commercial applications.

Annual Energy Use
5/5

With a max power draw of only 23.7 watts and a max efficiency of 420 CFM/watt, es6 is highly efficient, delivering large-scale airflow with negligible energy use. The fan’s air movement and coverage area allow businesses and homeowners to save year-round on cooling and heating costs by reducing the need for A/C in summer and improving the circulation of heated air in winter. es6’s efficient airflow and resulting energy savings more than offset the fan’s modest estimated annual operational cost of US$3.02—less than $0.01 per day.

Controls
5/5

es6 offers control options to suit any preference. A Bluetooth remote with magnetic wall holder or fixed wall control allows users anywhere within their Wi-Fi network to adjust fan speed and the optional LED’s light level and color temperature. Both indoor and outdoor models feature a built-in motion sensor that automatically activates the fan to maintain occupant comfort. With the Big Ass Fans mobile app, users can set airflow and lighting preferences, schedule routine operations, and access the fan’s special operational modes—Sleep, Timer, and Whoosh—from any location with an available network connection. Fan owners can also use Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to control their fan and light with voice commands.

Sound Level
5/5

es6’s permanent-magnet motor eliminates brush friction and minimizes mechanical noise, while its aerodynamic airfoils prevent wind turbulence. Measuring at less than 35 dBA at max RPM, es6 offers nearly silent performance, with sound level comparable to a whisper. When run at low speeds for destratification, the fan’s operational sound is imperceptible at occupant level.

Quality Quality The fan’s materials, engineering, and manufacturing process determine its durability and longevity.

Durability
5/5

es6 features six aircraft-grade aluminum airfoils that never droop or crack, secured to a cast aluminum hub system. Depending on finish, the airfoils are anodized or powder coated to resist corrosion for indoor or outdoor use. The efficient brushless DC motor quickly dissipates the fan’s minimal heat output, while patent-pending Airfoil Lock and Auto Balance technology provide additional security and ensure smooth operation.

Warranty
3/5

While not as extensive as the warranties for Haiku or i6, es6 features a full 1-year warranty for all suitable applications. Unlike many fan manufacturers who provide only prorated coverage, Big Ass Fans offers non-prorated warranties that are noteworthy for their straightforward terms and factory-direct service.

Warranty terms vary by region. See bigassfans.com/product-warranties/ for full details.

Performance Certifications
5/5

es6 has undergone extensive testing at Big Ass Fans’ research lab for the U.S. Department of Energy and Federal Trade Commission to guarantee accurate performance claims. Third-party verification of es6’s airflow data gives customers confidence in the fan’s performance and demonstrates Big Ass Fans’ compliance with industry regulations and standards.

Required Maintenance
5/5

es6 features corrosion-resistant airfoils and ball bearings and a mounting system that ensures the fan remains stable and secure. The fan’s gearless direct-drive motor is equipped with Auto Balance technology and quickly dissipates heat to promote long-lasting performance. es6 should be wiped clean as facility conditions warrant; otherwise, the fan requires minimal maintenance.

Motor and Drive Protection
5/5

es6 is rated IPX2 for protection against sprays, splashes, and low pressure jets of water. The fan motor and drive are fully covered, while its stainless-steel ball bearings resist corrosion caused by moisture and oxidation, making es6 suitable for indoor and outdoor use. A foam block in the motor shaft and sealed LED kit offer further protection from the elements in outdoor applications.

Safety Safety Strong redundant safety features and verified product testing are essential for secure, consistent operation.

Static Safety Features
5/5

es6’s universal and flush mounting options feature durable, corrosion-resistant hardware, and the fan’s lightweight design secures comfortably to a standard fan junction box. The six powder-coated aluminum airfoils are engineered to resist impact damage and weathering. All models of es6 include a safety cable and tilt restrictors for redundant safety. Available guy wires stabilize the fan in applications with high ceilings and those experiencing wind gusts, while a foam block in the motor shaft protects against water intrusion.

Dynamic Safety Features
5/5

es6 reflects the same care and attention to safety that Big Ass Fans applies to its large-diameter industrial fans. Its durable cast aluminum hub system includes an integrated airfoil retention system, while patent-pending Airfoil Lock technology prevents the fan from operating if any airfoil is not properly secured to the hub. During operation, the fan’s Auto Balance feature adjusts fan speed when necessary to prevent wobbling or rattling which would otherwise strain the mount and bearings.

Safety Certifications
4/5

es6’s safety is proven through rigorous testing. At Big Ass Fans’ research lab, the fan has undergone successful impact testing, mount tensile testing, and stress testing of hub and airfoil systems, the results of which far surpass competitor testing in scope and performance.

Facility Integration
5/5

Like other Big Ass overhead fans, es6 offers integration with building management systems (BMS) with its optional 0-10 VDC module for convenient, centralized facility control.

Patented and Proprietary Features
5/5

es6 exemplifies Big Ass Fans innovation, with an airfoil system, permanent-magnet motor and housing, and mobile app designed exclusively in-house.
