What are HVLS fans?
In simple terms, HVLS fans are the solution that large facilities such as warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities face while trying to keep the interiors of the space cool.
These fans were originally created for large spaces such as barns and factories. However, with the advancements in technologies, they have found their way in commercial and domestic residences as part of HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems in order to help with energy-saving.
In general, these fans are quite big and ceiling mounted with a diameter of 7 feet (2.1 meters) and bigger in some cases. These fans heavily rely on their big size to move air without the need of speed. Industrial fans for ventilation, are available for purchase in different varieties and sizes. These fans could be wall mountable, ceiling mountable and moveable (considered to perform equal to 20 upright industrial fans).

2. Paying Attention, as Every Site has Different Needs.
Finding the right HVLS industrial fan requires more than just standard measurements of square foot. There are general rules, but what is more important is to take care of overlooked variables.
Solid walls, racking, stacked pallets, solid stacks of product inventory, machinery, lighting, electrical conduits, water pipes, and HVAC duct work are some of the most overlooked variables that can affect the airflow from HVLS fans.
Apart from these, there are few other obstacles to consider, such as airflow bridges or gantry cranes, conveyors, signage that hangs from the ceiling, and even safety nets. All these can affect the air distribution and the quality of flow generated from an industrial fan. That’s why careful planning, following the general rules and eliminating these obstructions are highly important.
The Superfans Windy6 is the perfect and cheapest alternative to deal with these obstructions. As these movable fans can easily be shifted to a new position to meet the requirements of changing seasons and to avoid the obstructions that are usually present inside the facility.
3. Planning According to the Climatic Conditions of the Place
We’ve established that correct placement of these industrial fans is essential to obtain an energy-efficient and comfortable interior space of a facility. However, floor planing of the facility can obstruct from gaining optimum results.
These HVLS fans are quite efficient to help HVAC systems during summer, to properly ventilate the facility and provide a cool indoor temperature. However, during winter, hot air moves to the top while cool air sticks to the bottom of the room, causing a layered airflow.
This happens due to the obstruction faced by the floor jet (air pushed to the ground level by HVLS fans). Hitting the obstruction, the velocity of floor-jet is reduced and the airflow that should move outwards now has to go around or up and around to the obstruction.
When you use the movable Windy6 HVLS industrial fan, the warm air is stuck at the top while the pleasant air covers the entire surrounding at the bottom, inside a facility. The fact is, it generates less noise of just 43db level and allows to keep the fan on the base floor near the machines and the employees without causing any difficulty in communication. Furthermore the ip55 water/dust proof rating makes it easy to operate this fan in a moist or dusty environment.
