SPRING ... SUMMER ... FALL ... WINTER
YOU GET THE BENEFITS IN ALL SEASONS
To be honest, if we say AirMotion Big Fans provide you great benefits in all seasons, regions, and weather conditions - we said the least. You may find them exceed your expectations.
Their slow and massive air movement creates an exhilarating breeze in the hot and humid days so your workforce, clientele, or animals in the barn remain comfortable, happy, and more productive.
The same breeze, when blown upward (3X more effectively), provides MUCH better heating comfort in the cold weather conditions through a process called Heat Destratification.
All that while reducing energy usage and costs by up to 40% or even more!
EFFICIENT AND ECONOMICAL COOLING
IN THE HOT AND HUMID WEATHER CONDITIONS
A comfortable facility is pivotal for optimal productivity or getting good business. The slow and massive air movement by AirMotion Big Fans creates an exhilarating breeze - as felt by the sea side, in any big spaces. So your workforce, clientele, or animals in the barn remain comfortable, happy, and more productive in the hot and humid days.
One of our 3 HP, 24 ft big fans can replace as many as 48 high-speed (floor, wall-mounted, or overhead) fans - mostly with ½ to 1 HP motors. We leave it to you to do the simple math (or just give us a call, we’re always there doing the hard work for you) on how much energy consumption - and costs - can be reduced by installing ONE AirMotion Big Fan.
Their near-silent performance makes for a quieter environment. What a change from the annoyingly disruptive, noisy blow of air, isn’t it? And you get more freed up space around, while avoiding tripping and other hazards.
AirMotion Big Fans eliminate hot or cold zones and maintain consistent temperatures more efficiently throughout the space - in all seasons, regions, and weather conditions.

MUCH BETTER HEATING COMFORT IN THE COLD WEATHER CONDITIONS
When the air is heated it becomes lighter, and goes heavenward - a natural phenomenon. At large facilities and big spaces, where heaters are typically installed overhead, most of the heated air thus goes up higher into the roof level where it’s not required and ultimately wasted - leaving you cold at the floor.
For portable heaters, or when the heaters are installed on the floor, or at a lower level on the walls around the space, it’s comfortable as long as you stay close to them but not when you move away to the center of the building.
Energy experts estimate a temperature difference of about 30 degrees Fahrenheit between the roof and floor level of a 30 ft high building. That renders one degree difference per vertical foot. It’s called heat stratification, or stacking of air layers in different temperature levels - from colder to hotter - with the coldest at the floor level.
Now what you do, you set the heaters at higher temperature marks to get the desired warmth - thus ending up consuming a lot more energy for the unused and wasted heat that literally goes straight up. And so does your heating cost!
Some big fans run very slowly to move the air down (some move up by reverse rotation) to break the stratified temperature levels up, redistribute the otherwise unused/wasted heat, and achieve a temperature uniformity throughout the space so no more heat is wasted and you get consistent temperatures all around. The process is called Heat Destratification. The heaters kick in less frequently to maintain the set temperature. And your heating cost is reduced.
WHAT DO AIRMOTION BIG FANS DO?
At AirMotion, we’ve found that it’s much more effective to push the stratified air up, out, and down the building walls, rather than trying to pull it down, for much better heating comfort. And thanks to the Variable Pitch Technology, AirMotion Big Fans do that 3X better without any chilling effect or hot and cold zones. With more consistent temperatures all around.
MAKE AIR CONDITIONING MORE EFFECTIVE
You may find it hard to ignore the benefits of using our HVLS fans with air conditioning.
They mix the cool air in big spaces much more efficiently, and minimize the volume of air - and corresponding loss of cool air - that needs to be replaced for ventilation.
They distribute the cool air more evenly to eliminate any hot or cold zones and maintain uniform temperatures throughout the space, while you can set the thermostat several degrees higher for an equivalent cooling effect. (The industry rule of thumb says - about 3% to 5% energy usage and cost can be reduced for every degree of thermostat reduction.)
With new construction, AirMotion Big Fans can greatly reduce the cost of ducting, tonnage, and maintenance for air conditioning in big spaces.
GREATLY IMPROVED VENTILATION & IAQ
AirMotion Big Fans are outstandingly effective at
> mixing incoming fresh air with the indoor stale and stagnant air,
> reducing dangerous gases and noxious odors, and
> eliminating stuffy atmosphere
to maintain a refreshing and healthier facility environment by greatly improving ventilation and indoor air quality (IAQ).
With two or more of these truly innovative HVLS fans installed in your big space you can create a wave-like air movement by switching the direction of air flow. When one fan is moving air down, make the other move air up - and greatly improve
> Air Mixing
> Ventilation, and
> Indoor Air quality.
GET A WAVE-LIKE
AirMotion Big Fans are equally efficient to move air down or up. With two or more of these truly innovative HVLS fans installed in your big space you can create a wave-like air movement by switching the direction of airflow. When one fan is moving air down, make the other move air up - and greatly improve Air Mixing, Ventilation, and Indoor Air Quality.
There are lots of talks about energy cost reduction with HVLS fans, but exactly how much?
That exactly depends on the size of your space and the objective of your air movement.
In the hot and humid summer days, you reduce energy usage and costs by replacing those annoyingly noisy and blowy high-speed fans (which also guzzle a lot of energy) with AirMotion Big Fans. One of our 3 HP, 24 ft big fans can replace as many as 48 high-speed fans - mostly with ½ to 1 HP motors. And provides outstanding air movement.
But in the other seasons, or when using them with air conditioning, this industry rule of thumb might give you an idea. It says, about 3% to 5% energy savings can be realized for every degree increased (with the a/c) or every degree reduced (with the heaters).
This makes us adhere to an average figure of ‘up to’ 40% ‘or even more’ as one of our happy customers claimed that he reduced his winter heating bill by a whopping 75% - which is the highest ever we've heard!
SOME OF THE OTHER BENEFITS WHICH YOU MAY NOT HAVE IMAGINED
The massive air movement of our HVLS fans - and the consequent drying effect - reduces damage, waste, and disease while improving floor safety in facilities subject to humidity and moisture; like breweries, barns/ranches, and fresh produce storage and processing units etc.
The movement of large blades of these fans scares birds away and keeps them from nesting in the warehouses, dairies, barns/ranches, and aircraft maintenance facilities/hangars reducing the nuisance, damage, and disease that they cause.
The massive air movement also reduces condensation and keeps metals from rusting.
