5 Tips To Effectively Distribute Air In Your Facility

When you have a big facility it can be difficult to distribute air effectively in every corner. This article will help you by giving some easy and efficient tips that yield you best results.

#1 Switch To HVLS

If you are looking for a fan that can distribute air properly, saving cost and energy, then HVLS fans are the best option for you. High Volume Low Speed (HVLS) fans are the mechanical fans that have a diameter greater than 7 feet. They move slowly but distribute a large amount of air at a low rotational speed.


#2 Lower The Room Temperature

De-stratification is the foremost tip for distributing air effectively is to lower the overall temperature of the room. There are many ways by which you can lower the room temperature some consume more cost and energy and some consume less. Some common ways are listed below.

  • High-speed fans
  • High volume, low-speed fans
  • Multiple pedestal fans
  • Blowing cold air through HVAC

High volume low speed (HVLS) fans are considered to reduce the temperature by up to 7 percent. This effect is the result of huge blades that rotate at even out temperatures for the whole room. That’s what makes HVLS fans more effective than any other type of fan.

#3 Mount Fan On Ceiling

One of the most common factors that affect the distribution of air is the location of the fan in a room. When an appropriate fan is located properly in a room it distributes air at every corner of the room effectively. One HVLS fan can easily replace 10 normal fans because of the length of its blades. The size of the blades of an HVLS fan range from 8-24ft depending on the size of the room and height of the ceiling.

#4 Avoid Pedestal Fans

Pedestal fans can be a quick and easy solution but its temporary solution with poor performance. If you choose to go for pedestal fans you have to buy multiple fans and that would be a total waste of money. If you are thinking of installing pedestal fans in industries that you must be aware of its downsides. Some downsides include:

  • Multiple wires thus can be an employee hazard
  • Increases energy consumption
  • Poor performance that only cools the area near the fan

#5 Measure Fans For Correct Spacing

The spacing between fans is considered the key factor in the distribution of air. Less space will be wastage and more spaces will be ineffective. Therefore, to ease the process, you can install a big fan that covers a whole lot of areas.
