keeping spectators and gym users cool

big overhead ceiling fans for reducing heat and cooling sports venues gyms stadiumsSeasonal heat and humidity can put a damper on spectators at ball games, and gym users expect the facility to provide proper cooling while they’re working out. Big overhead fans are an energy-saving solution for reducing heat and cooling stadiums, sports venues and gyms and ensuring the safety and comfort of spectators and gym-goers. The massive air movement provided by the fans can make spectators, athletes and gym users feel 10°F cooler and protect them from heat-related injuries.

How big overhead fans cool & reduce heat

Conventional fans do nothing but push hot, stale air around, but the industrial-sized overhead fans do much more than that; they actually reduce heat and humidity by pulling hot air up to the ceiling and pushing cool air down to the floor. The fans are built specifically to cover large floor areas. Because of their size, they are able to produce a constantly moving air current to create a large comfort zone for facility users. The overhead fans reduce excessive moisture and create air flows to keep users comfortable. They can also be used for both winter heating and summer cooling since, unlike other industrial fans, they can be run in reverse without being damaged. During the winter, the fans bring warm air at the ceiling down to the floor level. This means that you can experience significant year-round energy savings.

Benefits Of big overhead fans

In addition to reducing heat and humidity, some of the other numerous benefits of the large diameter industrial fans include:

  • Quiet and efficient operation; the largest 24 ft fans consume less power than an average hairdryer
  • Tubercle blades allow fans to move more air with fewer blades and less noisebig fans reduce heat and cool stadiums sports venues & gyms
  • Inexpensive operation; approximately 6 cents/hour for one fan at 0.75 kw
  • Extremely low maintenance; recommended inspection every 20,000 hours
  • Creates air curtains and non-disruptive air flows
  • Decreases or removes airborne pollutants for a healthier, safer facility
  • Provides floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall constant and even ambient temperature
  • Risk of heat-related injuries greatly reduced
  • Energy savings in both summer and winter
  • Protects equipment from damage due to humidity and condensation
  • Minimizes need for expensive duct work in new construction
  • Extended equipment life because the equipment doesn’t need to cycle as often or as long as other fans
