HVLS fans are one of the latest innovations in the fan industry which brings you many benefits that you cannot get from a normal ceiling fan.
What are HVLS Fans?
High Volume Low Speed or HVLS fans are big ceiling fans that rely on size and not speed to move a very significant airflow, unlike a small, high-velocity fan that creates small, turbulent air streams that quickly disperse. Initially, these fans are made for large and huge spaces such as barns and factories, but now with evolution some things can be customized and tailored, including the size of these big ceiling fans. Which explains why HVLS fans are a popular choice in a wide variety of industries, commercial and residential spaces also.
The design of these large ceiling fans can help to stabilise the temperature in the area and allows for better ventilation for people in the area. The air emits from these fans is radiated in all directions, flowing until it reaches the wall.
How do HVLS Fans work?
HVLS fans work on the principle that cool air breaks up the moisture-saturated boundary layer surrounding the body and accelerates evaporation to produce a cooling effect. Ceiling fans produce a column of air as they turn. This column of air moves down and out along the floor, called a horizontal floor jet, this deep wall of horizontal moving air is relative to the diameter of a fan, and to a lesser degree, the speed of a fan. Once the floor jet reaches its potential, it migrates outward until it meets a side wall or other vertical surface.
Business HVLS fans vary from private roof fans with respect to breadth, rotational speed, and execution. While a few fans utilize contemporary sharp edges to move air, different techniques are being utilized to make it progressively productive, for example, utilizing airfoils.
