5 Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Industrial Ceiling Fan

As the warm weather returns and we think ahead to sunny, hot days, many business owners also need to think about airflow in their commercial space. Industrial ceiling fans are a primary way to keep the air moving. But how do you know if your current fan is the best option and you’re reaping the benefits of your industrial fan?
Here are five helpful signs that it’s time to upgrade your industrial ceiling fan.

  • Your current fan is not silent
  • You can’t control multiple fans from a single controller
  • You’re not seeing energy savings on your electrical bill when the fan is operational
  • Productivity loss among your employers is too high
  • Your current fan wasn’t designed by aerospace engineers

If any of these signs are true in your space, it may be time to upgrade to a Hunter High-Volume Low-Speed (HVLS) industrial ceiling fan. Hunter invented ceiling fans in the late 1800s. They evolved that design to make excellent industrial fans.

The Hunter HVLS industrial fan moves large volumes of air to control inside temperatures. They push air to the floor and then outwards, which creates a low-level breeze. That subtle breeze helps regulate both the interior climate and body temperature.

Here are some of the perks of Hunter Industrial HVLS fans.

These fans don’t make noise when they move. Plus, the motor and steel blade-holder were made specifically for industrial uses. (Other HVLS fans are made from pieces of other repurposed machinery!)

You can network all of the Hunter HVLS fans in your space (up to 30) to be controlled from a single point.

Hunter fans are the most efficient in the world, so with consistent use, you should expect to see energy savings.

Employees will enjoy better air quality, which adds to their safety and productivity. Did you know when inside temperatures reach 85 degrees and over, employees are 40% more likely to make errors on the job?

And finally, Hunter has more than a century of innovation and excellence. The Hunter way is not to piecemeal other parts and pieces to make an industrial fan. Instead, Hunter involved aerospace engineers to help design, test, and perfect the Hunter HVLS industrial fan. The fans are lightweight yet extremely powerful. They come with a direct-drive motor instead of the bulky gearbox so many other industrial fans still use.

HVLS fans are perfect for shops, warehouses, agricultural space, manufacturing facilities, and more. The Hunter fans come in five different sizes (14’, 16’, 18’, 20’, and 24’) so you can customize your airflow based on your business’ needs.
