Improving Indoor Environments with HVLS Fans

The use of HVLS fans has gained increased attention as a practical, affordable solution to improving air movement, reducing heat stress, and creating overall better environmental control.

Improving Indoor Environments with HVLS Fans

Distribution centers, manufacturing plants, and other large, open industrial facilities face a host of unique design and environmental control challenges. In the summer, they can become uncomfortably warm, while in winter their inhabitants often shiver at floor level while heated air rises into the rafters. They also face condensation-related issues, ventilation-related issues, and—because of their sheer size—potential difficulties with zone-specific management.

While HVAC and building management systems (BMS) can address these problems to some extent, savvy facilities managers now have another weapon in their arsenal: networked systems of high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fans. By mixing heat-stratified layers of air, HVLS fans make HVAC systems more efficient, significantly improving employee comfort and health in all seasons, while providing additional benefits in buildings with no air conditioning. They also help to reduce energy consumption, combat air quality-related problems, and even can be integrated into fire prevention systems.
