Where we can use HVLS fans?
Oct 15, 2018

Rotating at an optimized low speed, a OPT HVLS fan moves the most air over the largest area at the lowest cost. This allows for maximum cooling and “destratification"(the process of keeping the temperature consistent from floor to ceiling), reducing a facility's energy consumption by up to thirty percent.

Consult Rite-Hite for specific fan applications including:

» Warehouses                            » Athletic Facilities 

» Airports                                   » Convention Centers 

» Health Clubs                           » Schools/Universities 

» Retail                                      » Stadiums 

» Arenas                                    » Auto Dealers 

» Lobbies/Atriums                    » Libraries 

» Religious Facilities                  » Hotels 

» Theaters                                 » Bars/Restaurants 

» Hospitals                                » Barn    Hundreds of Other Applications

Experience increased comfort and productivity. HVLS fans gently move air at an optimized speed over people, so they stay cool, comfortable and productive in the summer. In the wintertime, the same fan keeps everyone comfortable by pushing the warm air from the ceiling down to the floor.


 

Year-round energy savings imageA space without an HVLS fan will have uneven temperature zones that waste energy dollars. The hot air accumulates at the ceiling and the cold air will sink to the floor, making your HVAC system inefficient and increasing your energy consumption.



imageAn HVLS fan operating during winter will mix the warmer air at the ceiling with the cooler air at the floor to even the temperature throughout the space. This process is called “destratification.” The fan gathers the warm air and pushes it down in a conical shape until it reaches the floor. It then flows out horizontally in all directions, filling the space. This can reduce a facility’s energy consumption by up to 30%.

Operating in the same space during the summer, an HVLS fan will circulate the air, making it more comfortable, by decreasing the effective temperature by 7°F or more. It’s the ideal supplement to your air conditioning because it allows you to raise your settings as much as 4°F with little change in comfort. That means you'll reduce your summertime energy consumption by as much as 20%.
