3 Things You need to know about HVLS fans
Nov 16, 2018

When considering the heating and cooling needs of commercial, industrial or agricultural areas, high volume, low speed (HVLS) fans should be considered firstly. HVLS fan airflow helps improve environmental temperature, which increases worker productivity in commercial and industrial settings.

1. HVLS Fans Move 13200 CMM Air volume

HVLS fans are not traditional ceiling fans. Traditional ceiling fans attempt to cool an area by moving air stream quickly with small blades and high speed, causing narrow air movement and poor circulation. HVLS fans work by using long-diameter, NASA-inspired airfoil-shaped blades that push air down to the floor and circulate it out before rising and being pushed down again. Also,this pattern improves cooling in warm temperatures and improved air circulation and heat movement on cold days.


2. HVLS Fans are Not Expensive

When talking about HVLS fans,many people would say:Wow,it's too expensive if compared with traditional ceiling fans.Actually,using HVLS fans not only can bring your building more effective cooling and heating effect,but also help you save more energy bills. Below is the study of energy efficiency table in different temperature range with OPT HVLS fans:


3. HVLS Fans Improve the Functioning of HVAC Systems

In summer months, HVLS fans promote cooling by allowing the air to move evenly over workers or customers, in agricultural settings, livestock. 

For months requiring heating, HVLS fans help redistribute the hot air that rises to the ceiling down to where workers and animals need it. For this reason, HVLS fans are considered very effective in structures with no central heating or cooling systems. However, HVLS fans continue to be helpful even when there is a traditional HVAC system in place.

HVAC systems' inadequate ducting, bad vent placement and even debris and build-up in the duct system can lead to less than ideal temperature control. Also, elements that do not involve system or building design, such as furniture or machinery placement, can cause poor air circulation and air quality. When HVLS fans are installed, customers report that their thermostat temperatures in the summer are set four degrees higher. In winter, the fans run in reverse to move heat from the ceiling and increase airflow during those stale winter months. No matter the time of the year, an HVAC system will not have to work as hard. An HVLS fan can help all year to keep airflow, and heating and cooling, efficient and cost-effectively.
