keeping federal employees and visitors comfortable
For a government facility, keeping employees and visitors cool and comfortable is of the utmost importance. However, HVAC systems can be expensive and use taxpayer money to run and maintain. Jumbo overtop fans for federal government buildings will help cool, heat, and ventilate court rooms, lobbies, offices, and other federal facilities while keeping energy costs down.
how jumbo overtop fans cool federal government buildings
Jumbo overtop fans provide floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall comfort for employees and visitors to federal and municipal buildings, offices, warehouses, or monuments. Unlike basket or panel fans, these ceiling fans don't just push hot air around--they bring hot air up to the ceiling, and push cooler air down to the floor. This creates an evaporative cooling effect that can make facility inhabitants feel up to 10°F cooler. This airflow also helps keeps floors dry to prevent injury due to slipping accidents and to reduce condensation and humidity. The fans are compatible with existing HVAC systems and allow you to lower your thermostat's set point without sacrificing comfort. The fan is designed for quiet operation, so they won't disrupt visitors or employees during working hours.
The jumbo overtop fans can even reduce your energy costs in the winter months. Unlike competitive fans, our ceiling fans can be run in reverse for wintertime heating without any loss in efficiency and no negative impact on the 15-year warranty. In reverse, the fans gently bring down hot air trapped in the ceiling to destratify uneven temperatures.
On top of that, the fans also provide excellent ventilation, and can reduce airborne pollutants, allergens, fumes, and odors in court rooms, lobbies, offices, and other federal government buildings. The fans are even more effective for ventilation when combined with wind-driven exhaust turbines.
